Hello, Predictioneers! Most humble apologies for failing to post yesterday. Events turned in unforeseen ways, and I had to scramble to deal with them. Nothing tragic, merely time consuming. With Colleen off on an adventure, there was no one to cover me (as I am covering for her).
Great stories last week, both serial and stand-alone. The winner is AJ Humpage with A Beautiful Burden. It had an enormous impact on me. Second place goes to Noah Heinrich for Immanence, in part because I am partial to stories of angel in-fighting, but also because there was such joy in the escape, regardless of the motivation therefor.
The tome, sulking at being ignored for a full day, has given us these fine words:
Well, that ought to be interesting! I am certain to be pleased with whatever your creative minds bring forth.
The usual rules apply: 100 words maximum (excluding title) of flash
fiction or poetry using all of the three words above in the genres of
horror, fantasy, science fiction or noir. Serialized fiction is, as always, welcome. All variants and use of the
words and stems are fine. You have until Friday evening, July 5.
Feel free to post links to your stories on Twitter or Facebook or
whichever social media best pleases you and, if you like, remind your
friends that we are open to new and returning writers.
