Good evening all!
Such an amazing crop of stories this week! I've loved reading every one of them. I am in the middle of a long weekend working so I'm going to get right to it.
Our winner this week is Sandra Davies with Change of Focus 103: Sandra this is a beautifully woven chapter. "Sick fear lodged, pebble-like, in the hollow of his throat..." is my favorite phrase. But this is full of quirky and descriptive phrases. As always, Pettinger never ceases to be interesting. Thank you.
And in second place this week is Rob Evangelista with Less than Humane: Another story full of intricate phrasing. I have always wondered what goes on in the head of suicide bomber. I like the tone of resignation here. Thank you.
The tome has brought forth new words and crawled under the bed to nap.
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 11 p.m. (U.S. Eastern time) Friday, .Oct 17th.
