Understandably, the holidays left us with few submissions besides my own. Even so, as always I had a very difficult time choosing. However, choose I did.
My choice this week is Antonia Woodville with Infinity 81: One thing I'm always impressed with, when the Captain speaks, is the ease with which you convey his mood with so few words. Each new submission is a frightening delight. Thank you.
The tome has enjoyed its little break and is ready with new words to get us started for a new year of Prediction. Let's see what it has for us.
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 Friday, January 9th. Winners and words on Saturday January 10th.
Happy New Year! The Gates are Open!
