Hope you like the changes I’m making to the Flash Fiction page. While still not final (we’re working on some formatting issues), it already delivers most of what I wanted:
- Ability to see more stories on one page
- Ability to browse by genre and by author, rather than having to click back through pages and pages of stories.
With that out of the way, let’s announce the results of our Halloweeny, Octobery contest that explored mixing love and horror.
Call me prejudiced… and I probably am, because I love reading every author posting here; but I see so many wonderful stories posted this months that I’ll go broke awarding each one I believe deserves to win.
It’d be almost unfair for me to call out my favourite stories this month, because then I’ll have to list almost every story posted. Many meet the contest criteria so perfectly that I thought of using an old hat to draw the winner.
Although, of course, I didn’t. I hand-picked this months winner from a (long) list of finalists. Among others, the finalists were:
1. Property of the Upper Classes by Mark Brown.
2. Forever by Deborah Lean.
3. Love Letters by A. Partridge.
4. Father’s Love by Michael Coady.
5. Deception by Michael Coady.
and, of course, the wonderful
So… the winner this month is:
Congrats! And once again, many thanks to every author who posted their wonderful, horrible, humorous, thought-provoking stories this month.
For November, let’s shift gears from horror into Fantasy. Any type of fantasy would do — swords and magic, historical, epic, steampunk, sexual… no limits!
