Thanks to all who dropped me a quick note asking where the heck was I. Your questions made me realize that the contest is starting to get some traction.
I apologize for missing a month. I simply had a good old overload, and dropped a few balls. Trying to do too much too fast!
I loved the December entries, didn’t you? Here are some that believe deserve to be short-listed for the award – the Greatest Seven of December:
2. End of the Line by O.D. Trebor.
4. Some Secrets are Better Left, well, Secret by Michael Coady.
As always, I wish I could award more, and I’m sure I’ve missed very deserving stories. However, this site isn’t perfect, and an element of subjectivity in my assessments will always remain.
The winners, in my view, are:
1st prize ($55): End of the Line by O.D. Trebor. This chilling story has thoroughly fascinated me.
Congratulations! Next up: the January winnings and the February prompt.
