Slush Pile BINGO!

We haven’t played slush pile BINGO, but I did make the board after looking over some of the stories we’ve rejected at Clarkesworld. (For this.) I don’t think the center square will be a big surprise to anyone.

If you’d like to suggest alternate BINGO squares, just put them in the comments.

 

Update 8/24/17:¬†Sigh. Yes, there are some good stories that check one or more of these boxes. However, the more you check, the less likely I am to agree that they are. We have published a story that opened in a bar, even though that’s on the board. Sometimes you can take something common and make it your own. Most don’t, so it gets a square.

IMPORTANT: Not all of these items are weighted equally. In a true BINGO board, some “unrecoverable” squares (plagiarism, zombies, etc.) would fill entire rows.
