Got my vote in for Last Night.
It was just so 'Bradburyish' that not voting for it would have felt wrong. :)

I was torn between Dies Irae, The Wizard of OZ: the Lost Alternate Ending and Left Behind as my personal favourites... went for Oz in the end

I loved these three perfectly painted worlds:
A Storm in Time
Like War, Weather is What You Get
Solomon Blacke

I voted for Like War, Weather is What You Get. The matter-of-fact discussion of magic appealed to me.

OK, here are my guesses, I'm probably wrong on all of em.
The Traveler - Cathbad
Stormchasers - Starbeast
Wizard of Oz - Mosaix
Mist - Victoria Silverwolf
Weathered - Chrispenygate
It was a Dark and Stormy Night - Danny Mcg

My vote goes to the story I find myself thinking about long after I read it, " Left behind " It brought an image of Hal from 2001 adrift in space recalling it's creators and his counterpart in Earth doing the same.

ps; I left 2 clues as to which story was mine.

I guess Cathbad wrote Stormchasers, don't ask how I figured it out, it was a highly complicated mathematical equation. :D :alien: :ROFLMAO:

Nope, nineteen stories and nineteen names supplied by Victoria.
You carefully left your own name out and one story, I had the same conclusion :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
