The fantasy short story “Lost in the Mail” has been deemed acceptable for printing in the Third Flatiron Publishing March 2014 issue. The theme is anything involving “Astronomical Odds” and “Lost in the Mail” fit the bill, apparently.
It’s a short story about a summoner who is at risk of losing his license to practice and his new workshop due to some mail of his becoming lost in transit. For anyone who’s ever had issues with the post office or any bureaucracy, this is for you! It is based on a true story, minus the involvement of magic.
