Ok, on to the winners for this week. Slightly less entries than usual but the quality was as high as ever. And so hearty congratulations then to my winner who is.....
... William Davoll with Consort. William - I thought that this was horror in the vein of the Hammer films of the sixties and seventies. Through your words we experience all the horrors of this demonic birthing and the twist of who the host is was excellently played. As John said, incredibly 'horrorful'.
And speaking of John Xero, he is my runner-up this week with Homesick. John - really loved the way you painted the scene in Homesick with such ease. A demonic slob slumped with boredom dreaming of a better existence. Great fun!
As always, my thanks to everyone for playing and congrats to William and John. Great entries from all.
The air is tense around me, the heat is rising and I think the source is the ancient tome straining at its chain in the corner. I think its hungry. Before I feed it fresh treats from the butcher, let me wrestle some words from its depths. And here they are:
The usual rules apply: 100 words maximum, excluding the title, of flash fiction or poetry using all of the three words above in the genres of horror, fantasy or science fiction. All variants and use of the words as stems are fine.
You have until 9pm (
Let me get stuck into your tales yet again this week.....
