Thanks! I got some very differing reviews on that story as you can imagine.

I have a story due out this week if anyone wants to take a look. I have to warn you though, it's a long one at 10K words.

I see that Matt and Stewart have a story in the queue as well. I definitely want to look at that one wotf007

Indeed we do. About 5k, and a very silly fantasy thing it is too. Confession: the pissing dog statue is the fault of my corrupted imagination, athough Stewart is hardly innocent as far as ridiculous ideas go.

Sorry I missed your piece the other week Zaan--being kept too busy by other things over my lunch breaks and not getting round to much critting at all :(

No, thank you for a very useful and detailed critique.

I've a story up again in the queue this week if anyone's interested.

No worries Matt, I've missed a few weeks myself. School's doing its best to keep me on my toes.

And Aaron, I'm sorry to have missed your story. I saw Matt's but seem to have overlooked yours. Also the story I have up this week is one you've already critted, just mildly tweaked and with a different title, so no need to re-crit it as I don't think it's changed all that much.

I've got a story up this week: Man, Dog, Robot. It's an overhaul of a previous version I ran through Critters. If you have time would especially appreciate any thoughts on how the story fits, or doesn't fit, with WOTF. It runs on satire and a pinch of crude humor. Not sure it fits the WOTF mold.

I fell off the critters wagon over the summer, I'm afraid, but I'm clambering back on now. And I have one up this week, a mere slip of a thing at 1500 words, about fairies, if anyone has the time. Cheers!

I have wielded my MIGHTY and NEWFOUND powers of pro-authorship to sneak a story into the queue at zero notice :D 3000 words of magical realism turning to horror, up for another couple of days. It's got 13 crits already, so enough to be going on with; mostly posting this here in case any of you are nosey and want to have a gander at a rough first draft of mine (and this one is rough; written it and thrown it straight in the queue, because it feels like it needs big stuff doing to it still so not bothered polishing the prose yet).
