Alas, submissions piled up faster than he could imagine -- gee, apparently there's a shortage of pro-paying markets out there! -- and even with a hiatus on submissions, life and things just got too much for now, I guess. So Peter updated the SOS website this weekend:
Clearly, my real life has caught up with my fictional one. As more and more of my time is needed for other things, the situation here becomes less and less fair to my contributors. Shadows of Saturn is over. All rights we own are hereby returned to the original authors. All submissions are released with apologies for the slipping response times, and with my sincere thanks for sending them in.
Thanks everyone for a great year.

Thank you, Peter!
It was fun to have a window inside an Internet start-up, fun to see a few stories.
The reality, of course, is that most small businesses fail and that most entrepreneurs go through multiple cycles.
We wish you well, Peter. And thanks to all who helped make the dream possible, and took the time and money to send submissions to Shadows of Saturn.
Okay, We're Closing SF Markets Faster Than We're Makin' 'Em
Who's next to start one?
