A Shelley Shellacking

The May flash fiction contest is over. When the dust settled, Shelley Ontis stood victorious, if a bit bloody. Her story, “Shiny Things,” snagged First Place, and it will now go in the running to be included in issue #5.

May’s contest was based on this and this prompt. Participants were instructed to “put those people and spiders in a different place, where the images you see are the natural order of things, and tell an unexpected tale of the symbiosis between the two.” Oddly, this resulted in a lot of stories about sacrifice.

Anyway, Second and Third Place went to Megan Engelhardt and Gio Clairval, respectively.

Congratulations, ladies!
