Our Grand Prize winner is Voodoo Williams’s “A Spider in Her Web,” a rather complex story told through a variety of voices.  I personally liked the “spider”‘s sort of stream-of-conscious impressionist passages.  Perhaps the other judges did too.  Congratulations Voodoo!

n

Sugar Kyle’s “Cortex” took the 1st Prize in 8,000 Suns.  I don’t have the other judges’ impressions of the story, but what stood out to me was the visualizations of scenes and interiors.  I felt as if I were visually watching the story as it went along.  Well done, Sugar!

n

In the Day in the Life category, Archaengel’s “The Best Sport” took 1st.  Just a great story about something that could happen (or did happen?) while playing EVE.  A good-natured story with a surprise ending and some humor.  The judges really liked it.  Nice one, Archaengel!

n

Abavus Durden’s “The Allure of the Damsel” took everybody’s favorite Swear and Curse humor category.  I didn’t laugh out loud (because I was on a commuter train), but I did some almost-quiet pneumatic nasal chortling and involuntary grinning.  Characters from every EVE player’s newbrohood, come to life!   Thanks, Archangel!
