Dog Days of Summer at the NOT!

The Magnificent Michael...that's what we should be calling Michael Solender with his latest creation - The Dog Days of Summer e-Chapbook. With the criteria for his selection process being the story should be exactly 101 words long, and must incorporate the words "summer" and "heat", he received nearly one hundred entries.

The selection process couldn't have been easy but his final decision has been made: congratulations to Sam Adamson for the Grand Prize winner entitled "The Pit of Hades". Darkness and humour in 101 words...my kind of storyteller.

Right now, get over to the NOT and have a look at the great e-Chap that Michael has done, plus the winning entry and others besides. Also a mention must be made to Kristin Fouquet for the excellent photography that really adds a wonderful touch to this collection.

A load of top pieces of flash delivered into that chapbook, big thanks to Mike for spending the time running it.

Congrats, Paul!! A magnificent piece on lost love. Michael chose well.

I longed for her return as I negotiated the chilling embrace of her cold-hearted successor. A fantastic line.

Cheers!
