Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

Thanks, Ishmael. I saw this and thought of you. I've entered for supernatural horror. Now, let's see if I have any Lost Worlds, Heroic Fantasy or Time Travel!

Nice! Both you and George are now TOC mates. Still waiting to hear on mine. Maybe...just maybe...I'll join you? ***quickly rushes off to make a virgin sacrifice to the Writing Gods***

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

I'm in with a former straight reject from the former judge. Dave hasn't seen it yet, and I've trimmed it quite a bit, so we'll see. I don't have much hope. It's just a place-holder as my current story isn't finished. I have to start entering earlier with better stories, darn it! Good luck, all!
