We have a two-way tie.

You have until 23:59 (GMT) on the June the 30th to make your choice.


The stories still in contention:


Patent Pending by Cat's Cradle

The patent application smells of mildewed basement. I examine CAD drawings suggestive of Hieronymus Bosch reimagined within mainframes.​
A DVD labelled: Interconnected 3D Organ Printers, is attached, so I watch.​
... Before soundproofed walls – beneath roaming, articulated arms connected to bloody tubing – two gurneys each bear half a man. Half of the same man. On one, he’s shredded and pneumatically transferred, on the second, he’s printed back into existence, screaming. ...​
There’s no name on the application.​



WHAT WAS I THINKING by Ashleyne

From the doorway, Trace watches herself sleep. Andrew smothers her with a pillow.​
She runs to the kitchen and there's Andrew, slitting her throat.​
Clutching her stomache, she stumbles to the toilet. Andrew's flushing bones.​
"Let me out!"​
The hospital room floats back. Andrew lies comatose.​
The doctor asks, "Did the mindwalker work? Did you speak to your son?"​
Trace rakes nails down her sore, tear-soaked cheeks. "He... wants us to pull the plug."​
