    I'm resisting the urge to trot out a Dark Lord tale.

    I'm not known for my willpower.

    I hope everyone appreciates my theme. I think I was thirsty at the time I came up with it. I hope no one's ideas have dried up by now. I'm going now.

    Nice idea Perp and similar to my first thoughts too, but you got there first. I won't shoot you for it, you did a good job mate.

    Back to the drawing board for me.

    Another month and another challenge. Yay. I think I'm getting better at these things. Of course, it would if I could go longer but that's not the idea. OK. Thinking cap on and I shall have something. What was that old Tina Turner song? Something about keeping the wheels turning?

    Ashleyne. B. Watts -- A terrifying vision of the inhuman, yet with emotions that seem very human.

    Perpetual Man -- A powerful account of great sacrifices made in the name of knowledge, all in vain.

    Elventine -- A witty and merry new myth which proves that there are no limits to human ingenuity.

    mith -- An adventurous fantasy with an ironic look at the rewards of valor.

    Luiglin -- A humorous look at the nature of comedy itself in its infinite varieties.
