  1. I really enjoyed how this muse inspired so many different kinds of stories. They were fun to read.

    1. Tom
    2. Jeff
    3. Bimbimbie

  2. Well done to those who entered. It's a hugely busy time of year and the deadline being the 26th put us right in the middle of it. Hard to choose the order in these:

    1. Jeffscape
    2. Tom
    3. Bimbimbie

  3. 1. Helen - "The Watchful Gaze of a Sheltering Sky" - Nice, raw, emotive.
    2. Mxwll - "Holiday Feast" - Enjoyable tale with tons of potential.
    3. Tom - "The Science of Romance" - Pure Tom. Pure, insane, confusing Tom.

  4. I loved how a Troll shows us the importance of enjoying a good roast at Christmas.

    1 Holiday Feast - Mxwll
    2 The Science of Romance - Tom
    3 The Watchful Gaze of a Sheltering Sky - Helen

  5. 1. Jeffscape. I like the "Survivor" game show feel of this one.
    2. Helen. Very tangible. I could see and feel all of it.
    3. Tom. Because I enjoy a good robot-runs-the-world story.
