Thought someone might be interested.
On July 7, 2011 sent a story to A. H. Couple of days ago I sent an e-mail query about the submission status.
Received today: "At the moment we are responding to stories received in early June. Therefore we estimate it will be another 1-2 months before you will be notified of our decision."
Funny you mention that. On July 16, 2011 I sent a story to The Strand and also around the same time sent in for a subscription. No action on either, so I've e-mailed them twice in the past three weeks about both. No response. Hmm?
Well, there's certainly no point in subscribing.
I have never known Strand to reply to anyone about anything.
