Prediction Winner

Whoa - a record eleven stories last week, including one double-entry. Fantastic quality - how hard was this to judge?

You all gave wonderful comments - which we all appreciate. A quick summary of all the entries then:

  • Michael Solender gave us an arse-pounding tragedy of human over-indulgence.
  • Joleen's commoner threatened an uprising, with little resistance from the King's servants
  • Ants in my Stnap was Chris Allinotte's first, fire-ant riddled offering, a cheeky play on words
  • Bill Owens provided a boyish banter about what to name a band moments before setting off to the contest
  • Chris Allinotte's second piece, the feral Queen of Cats poured like chocolate
  • Anthony Cowin tortured us with his murderous tale told from the perspective of a book
  • Antonia Woodville slammed us back into English history with Warwick's dangerous conniving.
  • My tale was of Mother Scarebones and her useless familiars. (You just can't get the staff these days.)
  • AidanF brought Grimm to the present day with his urban fairy tale
  • MRMacrum teased us with his Mayan mystery and nature's wrath
  • David Barber's Two Blokes were at it again a dialogue packed with misunderstandings and wit
  • SueH had the hunters becoming the hunted - as is only right IMHO.
Bloody excellent - the lot.

And the winner is... Chris Allinotte for his second entry Queen of Cats because it was so well written,  lapped at my senses and made me downright purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr........... Congratulations Chris - and well done everyone.
