The dream took me just after waking. This should have been in itself quite surprising, but at the time it seemed perfectly ordinary.

 Fiction: Winter - by Nomenklatura (490 words) - Date online (17-10-2011)
Sci-fi

This is actually Hope in a Bottle Part II. I'm thinking of trying to write 500-1000 worders tracing the bottle's progress. It may not work, but it's a kind of writing exercise anyway. This is about as much science fiction as say... A Canticle for Leibowitz.

Now, what sort of story is this? Black humour, maybe. A touch of 'fifties sci-fi with a lot of things you'll recognise. Make up your own mind! ;)

 Fiction: Little Lord Lucifer - by Footsie (750 words) - Date online (07-10-2011)
Humour

Little Lord Lucifer has an afterlife to run. The story is short (and nowhere near as bad as you might think) but sublimely hellish.

Just Plain Daft.

Written for the challenge. It went off at a tangent all on its own and since that's the first time in ages that's happened I just ran with it - hence being in the 'daft' category.

I always get in trouble for posting this sort of thing, but hey, I'm a rebel without a clause. I like it, and that's good enough for me. I enjoy speed writng, I never know what's going to spill out. Did I really have that inside my head? Thank heavens it's out now!
