".... and Odysseus hid in the great horse" -- This suspenseful tale of technological invasion ends on a surprising note.

"Well, Maybe A Quiet Place By The Sea…" -- This tense drama illustrates the power of the unexpected.

This just in! Entry #12! Another outstanding story from one of our amazing Chrons.

In Shadow of Truth, we find that anyone may change their occupation at any time.

Only an hour or so to go for any of you "last minute" people.

The March 2018 Anonymous Writing Challenge is officially closed.

I posted a poll. (Hopefully I did it correctly.) Could one of the Chrons please pin it for me? Thanks in advance.

Thanks to all those who participated and to Victoria for offering her always wonderful reviews.

I'll post a list of names for the guessing part of our program later.

Thanks again.

Liked .... and Odysseus hid in the great horse, Weather Mistress.
Voted POSITIONS AVAILABLE as it is the best (said a WOW player :) )

"Shadow of Truth" -- This haunting tale of justice is sure to stay vivid in the reader's memory.

"Judge, Jury and . . ." -- In an interesting coincidence, this story acts as a mirror image of the previous one, and is equally effective.

Vote goes to "Traditional Logic" for a very powerful theme.

Thanks for hosting, Johnny. Don’t forget to include a red herring in the list of names.

Some good entries but for me its a straight shoot out between POSITIONS AVAILABLE and Well, Maybe A Quiet Place By The Sea

I really feel both are deserving of a vote
