I personally think “Inheritance” is the story that’s most polished, as far as a quick submission goes. I wouldn’t mind submitting “Nightlights” to the literary fiction section, but I have a feeling that I submitted that story once before. Maybe “Ghosts in my Mind” would be a better choice for literary. Hmm.
