Voting glitch fixed. Short Story Contest 151 Theme: "Serenity and/or Diversity" Courtesy of @rasmanisar Voting for Short Story Contest (151) is OPEN We have twelve excellent entries in this contest. The winner will be revealed in two weeks and the winner thread will be stickied until the next contest's winner is crowned. No more entries are allowed in this contest. Entries are listed in the poll in the order I received them. Voting will end Sunday the 30th of March 2014 ~1730 (5:30pm) Pacific Time to give everyone a chance to read the stories. I encourage authors to vote. It is acceptable to vote for yourself, but I encourage you to vote honestly. In the name of good sportsmanship only vote for yourself if you have read all the other stories and given them your honest evaluation. Consider how the author has responded to the theme, as well as the quality of the writing and overall impression of the story in making your decision. With this many entries depending on the voting we may have to have a runoff. WE NEED YOU TO VOTE so that won't be necessary. HINTS for how to get through this many stories (for those that turn away because the task of reading 12 stories is intimidating): Read the first three or four paragraphs. If you don't think it will be the best, move on. If you like it, read the rest. Hopefully you can narrow it down that way so you only have to read a couple of them all the way through.
