Flash Suite contest - free to read, free to vote
I'm a finalist in a slightly strange online writing competition: all the entries must be "Flash Suites", collections of three or more flash fiction stories with a shared theme. Since early December the suites have been published one-piece-per-day, and now it's my turn.

The entries are a mix of styles and genres. Mine is spec-fic and a kind of homage to one of my favourite storytellers (whose name I won't mention!) in the form of four near-future encounters after the world has changed in a very specific, unsettling way. The first part appeared today and the other three will follow later this week.

My suite is called The lines, the trees, the cliffs, the eaves and it is under my pseudonym, Andrew Leon Hudson.

The contest is being held by Defenestrationism, and at the moment my story is at the top of the page. I'll post again with the dedicated page for my entire suite when it goes live.

After the last suite is completed a public vote will be held started January 13th, with the winner announced on January 19th. I hope you'll click over there and take a look--cheers if you do!

Ooh, I'll keep an eye on that, Nou. Good luck and well-done!

Righteo: my complete suite has been up for a few days and, as of now, so are all the others. The voting period has opened and will run until Jan 19th (as I said...) and in the modern mode one can vote as often as one chooses, one not being the limit. However there are also four official judges, so the most popular competitor won't automatically sweep the board.

If you're itching to show your support, here's the place to do so!
