Interesting month. I had an idea but no time to write - but it was very much rooted to the ideas of loneliness, memory and death I saw in that image. And I'm not saying that was in all the stories I enjoyed, but I think it was in most of them.

My shortlist was

Cat’s Cradle
Daysman
Hummus
Luiglin
Vaz
Peter V
Perpetual Man
Culhwch
phyreBrat
The Judge

With votes going to Vaz, Perpetual Man, and Culhwch.

Finally, all by himself in the "Please share whatever chemicals you are partaking in with me" category, is Dan Jones.

* That sinking feeling when you finally get your entry in, thinking you might get a vote, or at least a mention...
...and then you start reading the other entries :cry:
