Readers’ Letters and Comments for 03/15/18


Topic, Common Themes, and Winners of the WINTER, 2018 24-Hour Short Story Contest!

I was an entrant in this contest. Not only did I not win, I didn’t even get close to one of the apparently zillions of other prizes, gifts, or whatever you call the items sent to other non-winning authors. But, that’s not why I’m writing. I’m writing to congratulate you on your choices. When I read that first story, my thoughts were — Holy Sh*t. . . that’s one hell of a story. Outstanding. Not only that, but I, personally, am at an age where I can tell you my conversations with my wife often could be almost word for word from that story. Outstanding.

Reply to Cary Richards:

Pleased to meet you. Cary, and yes, it is bloody awesome. Haven’t been here long myself (I don’t get out much, especially at night – I have this irrational phobia of darkness, maybe better said, the absence of light) and thoroughly enjoyed participating in the contest. Will see you at the starting line for the next competition, yes?
