Dear __________________,

Thank you for sending "_________________" to Escape Pod. We enjoyed this story, but unfortunately, it's not quite right for us. We have to reject many good stories for a variety of reasons unrelated to their quality. We wish you the best in finding this a good home and look forward to your next submission.

Best Regards, Benjamin C. Kinney Assistant Editor, Escape Pod
