    Two stories where the dreams take over reality.

    Yes/No - Jason broods about reality and dreams until he is able to sleep and dream freely. Love as oblivion and source of dreams.

    Bluehoundīs nightmare "Dreams", draws itīs effect from the perspective of the dreamer.

    Congratulations to both. And the winner is Bluehound.

    Here's a very short story I wrote last week. It had to be no more nor less that 81 words (excluding title) for the anthology "81 Words". When Chris Fielden gets 1000 stories he will publish it and hope it will win a Guiness Book of World Records for a collection with the most individual authors. I am just doing my part for a worthy cause. http://www.christopherfielden.com/wr...es/81words.php


    I’m Rooting for the Ghost

    After Michael saw the ghost he understood. What he understood he would not say. True knowledge should not be made so literal that any monkey could understand it.

    Anne sympathized with him but she thought his deranged prefrontal whatchamacallit generated the ghost. Otherwise why was he locked up with her?

    Michael told her she could escape with him through the skylight of the cell. Anne said she would consider it. That was the only reason Michael told the ghost to wait.

    Interesting project, Yes/No. Iīll see if I manage to write a good story.
    I read the story on your blog, but was a bit puzzled about it. I didnīt understand why the couple was in a cell.

    Iīll PM Bluehound, but I donīt know if he is still participating.

    They were in a mental institution. Michael's "deranged prefrontal whatchamacallit" was intended to suggest that.

    I have been reading some of the other challenges that Christopher Fielden has on his sites. I am also reading the contest results from his 2016 To Hull and Back competition. He is hoping anyone that contributes will purchase an ebook or physical book of the final product which I don't mind doing. The profits go to charity. He doesn't sell many books. Also one of the good things is that he doesn't require first publication rights on submitted stories. So I can post them on my blog or here at the same time.
