The Tome has finally arrived home from visiting its Mother and is ready for winners and words. Who knew it has a Mother?! Any rate, we are ready to go.
Our winner this week is Zaiure with Spike:, for the sheer lushness of the writing. This story is gorgeously descriptive. It was an absolute pleasure to read. Thank you!
Also winning this week is Patricia Purvis with First Encounter: I'm delighted with the cleverness of this piece. The prompts are so seamlessly woven that I had to read more than once to find them. Thank you!
And now for our new words:
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.
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.
You have until Saturday, May 16th. Winners and words on Sunday, May 17th.
The Gates are Open!
