ErikB -- The way in which self-interest often trumps all other concerns is shown in this ironic tale of adventure.

Glen -- This refined comedy of manners demonstrates how we often try to maintain our dignity in the most alarming circumstances.

Robert Mackay -- The common yearning to "shatter it to bits, and then remould it nearer to the heart's desire" is demonstrated in this time fantasy.

johhnyjet -- This tale with a vast, cosmic viewpoint serves as a fable of responsibility and the need to grant freedom to those dependent on us.

Heijan Xavier -- The experience of being a stranger in a strange land is aptly conveyed in this story of displacement from one's reality.

Resolution, something that some books could take as a goal. Ahem, David Weber are you listening?
Ouch ouch. That burn made it all the way to me, leaving half of Oxford a smoldering pile of ash in the process.

I've been a bit busy working on a 3000-word story for a contest. There's a saying on the internet that goes something like this: When plan A doesn't work, there's the rest of the alphabet. I bring that up because I'm about on plan D. I'll keep working at it until I have to send it in. So that's where I've been.

I hope everyone had a good time lately. The weather here has been cold, sunny, windy, and rainy. Sometimes, all at once believe it or not. lol. Well, I wish everyone an enjoyable weekend.
