Hello, Now normally if you are mailing your manuscript to Story Magazine and the Editor is Bob Conolly, you'd write your cover letter "Dear Mr.Connolly..." But what if you know he isn't the first one to read it? Specifically I am submitting a story to Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine. The mailing address is to Editor Gordon Van Gelder, however, I know that all manuscripts are first read by the assistant editor John Joseph Adams. So should I address the cover letter to the first person I know who will read the manuscript, even if the magazine doesn't make that information public? The magazine doesn't have a cover letter requirement, so should I just make it easy and skip the cover letter?
