As the hands reach twelve on the Short Story clock, I sit and contemplate the title for the next Short Story topic.

The decision is made, the title, scrawled in bold below, is set.

Midnight

Ah. I see you think this may be easy. But the reader is looking for originality here. And so I bid you write, write me a tale I'll relish. And when the calender flips to 25th June, I shall read and decide on a winner.

**Update**
Stories will be judged TODAY! Anyone still wanting to enter has until later this afternoon while I read through the other stories.

***UPDATE 2***

Well, it was worth the wait, though maybe waiting for Meka to enter wasn't fair on everyone else (yes, it was all planned, Meka, that subliminal message you got to write a story and all).

Well, the winner has been chosen, and yes, it was the one that matched the subject matter in the best way, while still being original...

So, well done Meka, A Coachman's Tale won SSC12!

I loved reading all the stories, though, it was still a hard decision with the quality all these short stories provide.

I've kept most of my older material, if anyone wants it for anything.

Thanks pb - now off to work, where the forum is blocked, but that gives me time to think of a suitable topic.

Actually, I suggested a while ago that Special Reserve (RIP) should have got all the stories together from the original SSC to publish, even if just to their members.

It's still a very good idea, but you need to get author's permissions first...

I have a great idea! I'll publish a book of all these SSC. I'm sure it would be a great success. Of course you'll all be compensated with a 10 gift certificate at Blockbusters for each SSC I publish.

You can't get fairer than that. =)
