Anyway, you don't want to hear me prattle on, you want to know who the inaugural winner of Phlambler's Prediction is. So, after much deliberation, let me put you out of your misery.
My winner is Veronica Marie Lewis-Shaw with her entry which was literally To Die For. Veronica - I loved the description in this piece and felt like I was living through the characters as I read it. Superb and well deserved.
I have two runners-up this week with two different yet compelling pieces. The first is Shaun Adams with A Tale From Bile County Part 2 . Shaun - my heart was caught in my throat as I read this piece. The stolen child and the dying wife were such strong totems and the promised revenge gave a chilling finish.
My second runner up is William Davoll with The Mighty Have Fallen. The last entry of the week was packed with a superb concept mixing science fiction and the occult. William - I felt that this one could build into something much bigger and the character of Tower Block Lily was genius.
So my congratulations to my winner and runners-up for the week and to everyone else who entered; I lost count of the number of times I changed my final decision!
So, onto this week's Prediction. Already this tome is feeling so comfortable in my hands and it almost seems as if it is whispering to me; maybe one day I won't even need to open the pages to get the words. And here they are springing forth:
You have until 9pm (
I can't wait to see what tales you are going to punt my way this week.....
