They were good! I especially liked the first one, and the one about starting with aftermath (tempting idea :)

Jon, thanks for these! I always look forward to your lists, and this time I checked out the one on submitting short stories--and sold a story four days later. I am so excited! And I would never have found this market without your link. It's a literary zine and i"d been focusing on genre markets.
