Admittedly, it's a very small field. Quite a specialist genre.
But when the editor of MSU, the website containing the single largest repository of genre fiction, writes at the top of his "updates" page "February 7th: Let's see.... DOUG S IS BACK!!! Ok so he did one story, but I can hope, right?", then I think I can infer some sort of enthusiasm on his part, no?
Oh, and it was written for a competition. There are seven stories in the running. We'll see how it goes.
