I'll be offline for a few hours, so I just want to say (again) what wonderful storytellers y'all are. As far as I'm concerned, there are 39 first place stories there. Congratulations to all.

A big Thank You to Harry for successfully running this cat-herding venture. To all the voters I offer my thanks for taking the time from your lives and your projects to read all the stories and for supporting your fellow writers. It's appreciated more than you know.
