The story posting thread has the theme and genre reversed... I always look there first and was a bit confused for a few moments. It shows:

Theme:

COSMIC HORROR

Genre:

Fragment, fracture, and/or fractions


If you reverse those, you have the Challenge. Not sure if that is what your post was asking, but just a thought.
I don't know. We just can't get competent staff nowadays! (And HB didn't even have the excuse of having to cope with things pre-breakfast on Sunday morning!)

Anyhow, error now corrected so theme and genre are the right way around!

Thanks, TJ! I didn't mention it earlier only because I didn't want to sound all whiny and complainy... I knew people would figure it out (it was listed correctly here in this thread:)), CC

Does anyone know if "fragment, fracture or fractions" refers to anything? Or are those just words?

Given that it is 'fragment, fracture and/or fractions', I think it is meant to be just words, partly synonyms. Whatever triggers your muse.

THX1138 , that was a pretty chilling 75 words. I might just have to sleep with the lights on tonight. And the mirror covered.
