BTW, six entries already, but two haven't enclosed their forum IDs, so I have no way of knowing who they are when the voting begins scratch I'll have to give them a nudge and ask them for the missing details, I suppose.

Still, six stories isn't bad for this early in the comp afro

If it was me, I'd end up with the aisle seat and spend the whole flight getting my elbow taken out by the stewardess trolley, having people climb over me to get to the toilet, and I'd probably have a four year-old in the seat behind who spends the whole flight kneeing me in the back and tapping me on top of the head with a purple plastic dinosaur that sings repetitive nursery rhymes every time it gets tapped. Still, it could be worse.  grin

Yes, you could be seated between two morbidly obese people (a couple), at least one of whom is flatulent as I was on a loooooong flight.  pissed

Look on the bright side - there's always somewhere comfy to rest your head in that situation grin (After you've plugged your nostrils, of course undecided )

I'll certainly be trying to get something in for this - it was Flirtybee's SlingInk post that brought me here. (Back here actually - I joined some time ago but my account got deleted because I kept forgetting to stick my head round the door - d'oh!)

I cannot participate in this particular comp because of my relationship with Adventure Books of Seattle. But, I will say this much to everyone else. Anytime you have a chance to enter a competition for prizes without a fee, you definitely should submit something.

Something gruesome, and without mercy... evil

Thanks, Neil afro

Robert - the comp is open to everybody and, since the judging is by poll, and there's no anthology attached to this comp, there's nothing to stop you polishing an old story and submitting it, if you want to.

Morning all, another newbie enticed here by the competition... actually Geoff said if I agreed to vote for his story he'd have a word with the committee and let me join. And here I am!

Cheers,
Del
