Wicked Karnival

I have submitted my experiment-in-second-person short story Modranecht to the Wicked Karnival competition (the Christmas theme was just too good to pass up).

I was alerted to the competition by the following post on the Apex Digest forum:

Killer Kritque writing contest news: Usually we pay the best story in the contest with some cash. Since it's going to be Christmas time I decided to add some more prizes on top of this for the winner of the Dec. contest. You'll find the guidelines, here all the way at the bottom:

1st place wins:

1. $30

2. Black Christmas on Dvd, authographed by Bob Clark

3.Jack Ketchum is donating A signed hardcover copy of NIGHT VISIONS 10, in which his novella THE PASSENGER first appeared, along with a novella by John Shirley and stories by David B. Silva, edited by Richard Chizmar.

4. Elite is going to donate a horror dvd, TBA

5. Rick Hautala is donating 'Follow' signed.

6. Slaughterhouse of the Rising Sun on DVD

7. Simon Clark is donating HOTEL MIDNIGHT, a collection of short stories.

8. Asylum donated 'Frankenstein Reborn' and 'Beast of Bray Road' both signed by the director.

9. Asylum also donated Hide and Creep on dvd.

10. Jason Sizemore will donate a year subscription to the Apex Digest.

Apex Digest editor Jason Sizemore plans to enter as well. I have officially said: 'Ho ho ho,' to him.

Hey, thanks Kim!

I remember you were one of the first people to read the proto-version of this story.

Fingers crossed, huh?
