Virgil, you did a stupendous job on your short story. I really had no idea who wrote which story and voting was difficult to say the least; although I would still have been partical had I known the authors. I congratulate the winner! Your story was fantastic. You all did a great job on this competition. I commend you all, and I was very glad to have read them all. I admit I only had the time to read each once and perhaps now need a second reading. I will like commenting on yours, Virgil, when you make up your thread. I hope others follow your example and also make individual threads. It would be great to print them all and read at my leisure.
