Wow. Even with only four stories, we got 3 fabulous ones (I withhold judgement of mine).
Great stylish writing!

But, yeah. I voted.

I agree, four great stories and I have no idea how to decide for whom I should vote!
I guess it's the same for you, since only two people have voted until now? ;)

Come on, it's only 4 stories to read, and they're totally worth it :D

There are only 3 votes so far, it's the lowest we've had in a long time - you've got 3.5 days left, plenty of time!

Voted.

I have to say, the titles for these entries were a real high this month around.

Voted. Don't recall a month being as diverse as this (in terms of style of stories), despite there being only 4 entries  :)

A little late in day but voted.  Interesting choices of theme and all well-executed.  A very tough choice.

Votes aside, would appreciate comments on story and writing. PM or here in thread both are fine.

Voted. Hi all writers want you to know I always read and vote but don't always remember to say so here. It is a special end of month treat and thank you for all the stories that entertain me so well. But this month I am rather concerned about all your visions of our possible futures. Cue, @xiagan & @ScarletBea, do we need a theme of joy, happiness, laughter &  hope ?  ;D

Well, August is already set, but funny you should say that, since we had another good option for a theme, but discarded it for now because it is (or it could be) a bit grim...
We'll try finding a joyful one for September, then :D
