That's very kind, thank you very much, especially considering that
most of the story was written the day before the contest deadline.  To
give some perspective, the most recent issue of JOLT CITY took me over
a year to write/rewrite/put-into-a-form-I-was-mostly-happy-with, and
the issue I'm currently working on probably won't see the light of day
until at least the summer.  So I'm pleasantly surprised and very glad
indeed that this story seems to have provoked such a positive reaction/
provided some pleasure.

Also very kind, thank you.  If I've gotten better at writing-- and I
think that I have-- it's because of the support and criticism I've
received over the years from RACC.  Hell, I think RACC is largely
responsible for the fact that I now act like something approximating a
human being, instead of the whiny, illiterate AOL troll-thing I once

Thank you again, and it's very nice to have you back,
