I've got a second piece posted on the MicroHorror website, this one titled "Absentee Ballots." You can read the story by clicking here.

This is an abridged version of a story I entered at the last minute into Apex Digest's recent Halloween competition, themed "Election Horror." Had to whittle it from a thousand words (Apex's limit) down to MicroHorror's limit of 666. Probably more humorous than horror, but I had fun writing it.

It's a good example (I suppose) of how a story is never wasted. Whether it finds a home in the first place you send it or the fifteenth, if it's a good story and you believe in it . . . keep trying!

And thanks to Nathan Rosen, who truly does a remarkable job with MicroHorror. Not only does he provide a forum for new writers looking to be read, but he is remarkably personable in his communications and has an unbelievably quick turnaround.
