Well, This Is a Pleasant Surprise

Seems my flash-fiction piece "Cthonic" came in fifth place in the Clarity of Night's "Uncovered" Short Fiction Contest. Allow me to reiterate my earlier emotional response: Hoo dee, hoo dee! ISLF was well represented in the winner's circle, not only with my piece but also with those by regular commentors. Aerin Bender-Stone's "Heirloom" took second, B. Nagel ("Fifths") and Samuel (aka Ollwen) Jones ("Haina Baraka") both earned honorable mentions. Be sure to check out their stories and give them your congrats.

I'll slip right over and read it.

That was chilling; and might I say "deep". :)

I listened to the recording too, but my minds wanders too much for following the story well in that media.

Besides; I wanted to read your writing. Congratulations on placing 5th. They were all interesting reads.

Thanks, guys! Sorry for the late reply. I've been struggling with finding reliable Internet access over the past few days.

Congrats!

I didn't enter this time, mostly because the image just didn't spark any thoughts or ideas for me...

Thanks, sir! This one took a little while to get going. I wasn't sure where to go with the picture at first.
