I read these as they came in and then read them all again this afternoon. One stood out for me but there were so many more that were deserving of the last three votes and I hated having to make final choices. Thank you that was another great month's writing and you are all most twisted, bloodthirsty, malignant and manipulative.

First time voting.  ;D

I did write one for this but it was over word limit and I didn't think it was anything that special.

But yea interesting mix there in a tricky theme, especially the fantasy names...

I was actually thinking a while ago that it'd be cool to collect all the stories from each year and put them together into an ebook, then realised that I actually can't think of a reason that would be useful...  :o


Anyway, if m3mnoch has a monthly ebook version covered, who's up for narrating a monthly audiobook version?  :P

Narration sounds fun.

That might be the first time I have seen the code tags being used on this forum in the ten-ish months I've been here.  :)


Really need to start reading...

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.
