Congratulations Alex, good win and almost a photo finish by the sounds of xia’s comments and the vote scores.  ;D
MattWillis and RobertS got my votes this month. ;D

Yep. It took me a while, but I got there in the end. :)

Hopefully the first of many.

My votes went for @The Gem Cutter and @NightWrite

Thanks! What happens in the event of a tie, by the way?

My votes were for Alex and Jmack fwiw, but there wasn’t a story I didn’t enjoy

Congratulations, Alex!
And to everyone.
I have to,say I was surprised by the competitiveness of my own story. I’m some folks liked it.
Meanwhile, I also voted for @RobertS and @MattWillis this time around, but enjoyed them all as always.

I went for GemCutter and MatWillis. GemCutter, there was an old school sort of feel to your piece. I can't describe it really, but I liked the dark eldritch sort of feel as a call back to the era of Moorcock and Howard and Lovecraft.
MatWillis, I liked yours because it described how the universe really is. Fortunately only a very few of you puny humans can ever see it.
I would rather look stupid today than be stupid tomorrow.

It's a curse, I tell you. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
