Just received:

And the trumpets sound! Congratulations, Chicago Overcoat wants you!

Your story has survived a rather long and arduous selection process, and now that the smoke has cleared, we're finally getting notifications out. Sorry for the delay, but this task was made even more difficult thanks to a number of utterly fantastic stories. Still, if that's our complaint, then what's bad for us will be great for the anthology, and we hope that you are as excited to still be a part of this as we are to make it.

If you are, get back to us as soon as you can and we'll start talking over the contract and any possible editorial changes we've made to your story (grammar-wise).

Thanks again and congratulations!

This concerns my short story, The Furry Con Mystery Or My Fursuit Is Hot (with apologies to Dashiell Hammett)
