Halloween Contest Winners

October 31, 2010

Halloween Contest Winner:

Armies of misshapen children, plastic faces, plastic wings, plastic bags. Kneeling, we pray the door will hold. The candy bowl is empty.
Stephen V. Ramey

Honorable Mentions:

The worst of it was he’d had his heart-attack riding the ghost train. Now, however much he wailed and screamed, no-one took him seriously.
Simon Kewin

They crawl inside, rise, stand erect at the foot of Jimmy’s bed. Roach relatives of the squashed mess he left outside, hungry for vengeance.

  3. WOW — I’m honored to share space with Steve and Simon; it was bound to happen sooner or later! And congrats to Steve for the WIN.

  4. Thanks Mike! Yours is excellent, Simon. And, Milo, I suspect they could have flipped a coin (well, two) to determine the order for these three. See you in Asimov’s soon, I hope.
