Anybody have any scifi novellas kicking about?

http://www.tor.com/2016/06/01/tor-com-publishing-opening-to-science-fiction-novellas-in-june/

Tor.com Publishing will soon be reopening to unsolicited novella submissions! Starting June 5th, Lee Harris and Carl Engle-Laird will be reading and evaluating original novellas submitted by hopeful authors to http://submissions.tor.com/tornovellas/. You can find full guidelines here, and we highly recommend you read the guidelines, because we’re doing things a little differently this time.


Until the end of June, Tor.com will only be considering novellas of between 20,000 and 40,000 words that fit one of the following science fiction subgenres:

Time Travel
Space Opera
Near Future Thriller
Cyberpunk
If you have a novella you want to submit that doesn’t fit these parameters, don’t give up hope. Our plan is to rotate which genre we’re soliciting periodically, so check back here and on our submissions guideline page regularly. Once we’ve worked our way through these submissions, we’ll re-open for a different genre. Please don’t ask us what genre we’ll be moving to—we’ll be deciding that closer to the time.

Well SCREW ME my Near Future Novella is in the WORKS, and like, not near the starting blocks at all.

Not yet. I've got a couple SF WIP, but will be novel-length for sure.

Bah there is always a time for submission later, I'm just being silly. Also after waiting as I did for a short story submission with tor, I'm not in any rush to submit any other work to them if they work just as slowly...

I would hope their submissions process has drastically sped up by now, what with not being wide open to to subs all year long.
