Thanks for posting the topic, bou. Axe is being too modest. He has been buried in so much work I am surprised he found time to post that little bit above. He loved your story so much he raved about it to me in an email post.
There are two other hatrack authors in the review. Steve Ramey wrote a wonderful piece I reviewed and Nebula nominee Eric J Stone wrote may be the most enjoyable work of flash I ever read.
Nice work hatrackers. And thanks to Utahute, Axe, and the Anonymous one for bailing me out.
