Submissions v. Subscriptions

So far this month people wanting me to publish their stories in ST outnumber those willing to renew/buy a subscription to the magazine by approximately 4:1. This is, I suspect, the reason why there are very few people out there willing to edit small circulation magazines. Pity.
