    The slushpile for the Edge of Propinquity for this month was not too bad over all. There was one story I almost accepted. Almost. But it wasn't quiet right. Of course, there were the stories of angels creating the world as well as the far past stories written as if the reader was the protagonist (a style I hate). Those were easy to reject and annoy me. I've stopped now because I was so annoyed at the last story I read that I did not want it to color my opinion on the next story.
