    I voted, but not saying for which story until vote closes in a couple of days. The reduced number of entries is notable. Is it a reflection of lack of enthusiasm for these particular prompts or other factors? Also, on the home page would it make sense to change the heading from "bi-weekly" to "monthly" short story contest? Not a big deal, of course, just wondering.

    Ooh we have a leader! Might be no need for an arm wrestle after all.

    @DueNorth that's making my teeth itch too, but only @Daniel can change the text and he hasn't been around.

    This is getting to be something of a nail-biter. Ooh, maybe we should have commentary next month? "Coming up on the inside as we enter the final furlong..."

    Seems like a plan to me though it does give the ex forces among us an unfair advantage

    No tie-breaker poll this time. It would have been interesting to see.

    You never know - there's still 6 hours to go!

    My story was in a tie break vote once. It was very tense.

    Sorry authors; I know I still owe critiques for these entries. I started a new job and haven't got much spare time at the moment. I won't forget!
