1st Place: "Aneirin saved my life the day I met him, and saved it twice again before he finally killed me."
Winner of a $20 gift certificate to any online bookstore.
There was a tie for 2nd Place between:
"Anyone who ever thought snow was soft and silent had never trudged through the bowels of Northern Canada in the middle of the night in mid-December with a thirty-pound pack strapped to his back and a hundred-pound thief complaining at his side."
"Gerry composed Latin jazz tunes in his head every time he and Javier made love."
Who will receive $10 each. Due to the small amount this can be taken as a gift certificate or direct paypal payment.
I would encourage all of the winners to send me an email to say which store they want the gift certificate for, and which email to send it to. I would also appreciate a brief paragraph about how you arrived at that first line, and if the work is published please send a cover art and link to go with it.
