Speculative Fiction Stories that Editors See Too Often (1 Viewer)

Bumped into this listing last night on Strange Horizons and figured it might help some of us make spiffier, more publishable stories (or spiffy up some we've already got).

Feel free to add more unlikely-to-sell story ideas and what editors have told you about what they want or don't want to see.

They don't want any more vampire stories, werewolf stories, and are sketchy about zombie stories.
Romance novels sell like hotcakes, but for about the same price.

It's funny some of the stuff they mention on agent's sites regarding what they DON'T want.
