Yes… my name and my story don’t appear on the short list, but it is all good. Greg has made provision for editors contributing to the project to have their stories included outside of the list, which shows the transparency of the judging process and the fairness inherent in everything Greg is part of.  My guess is Dan Powell’s entry also makes it into this special section! I just haven’t managed to get hold of him yet to ask. While I feel unworthy of inclusion under this section, because I haven’t been able to contribute the amount of time I wish I could have, due to the demands of Chinese Whisperings in the last two weeks, travel, sickness and now Choose Your Online Adventure, Greg assures me I have contributed. And I know better than to argue with Greg.
Congratulations everyone, especially to Paul who is crawling out of the black hole which has been determined to swallow him whole this year.

Keep up to date with the progress of the anthology at Big Bad Media.
