I'm hoping that the Predictioneers will all rise to the challenge this week and give me something with a ghostly tinge to honour this time of year. But before then I am sure you want to know who the winner was from last week.
After much deliberation I have decided that my winner is......RR Kovar with Impact. Rebecca - this is a tale which I confessed in my comments that I didn't grasp at first (my dimwittedness rather than your writing) but when I understood the fullness of it, boy was I blown away. Clever, clever stuff which I would encourage everyone to go back and read.
My runner-up this week is Matt Farr with his two takes on Only the Mundane Vices and its sequel. Matt - a sombre tale which shows the depravities of men which are often supported by the blind eye and deaf ear of those around (how topical it seems). Two well presented takes on how the victims react, each with an incredible ending.
And an honourable mention to Mr John Xero for two pieces which put a smile on my face twice over with both sets of words I provided for play.
As always, congratulations to my winner and runner-up accompanied with huge pleasure at having read all the other wonderful entries. I do so hope you all decide to come play again this week.
So, to the spooky words that will be provided for our delight....well my tome is getting quite exciteable as we get closer to the 31st, it's like Christmas for him and I'll be leaving him out a special mince pie if he behaves (though I won't divulge the filling to you dear friends). Oh, oh, oh, he's telling me something....
