A contest

That's right, folks. One whole month of entries. I love me.

Right. With that out of the way, a contest:

I link below to all of the fiction I have on this here LiveJournal.

Each link has a few keywords along with the title (F'rex, Midnight White will get "alien cyborg sex drugs").

I want you, in a comment, to go through and vote for the three things you want to see a sequel to. Not the three you thought were best, for it could be that they were good precisely because they were one-shots. Stories featuring the end of the world will instead get a prequel. Metafiction is deliberately excluded.

Let me recap that: One comment. Three votes. No votes not in comments will be counted. Only the first three titles in each will be counted.

The List
Cigarette Dawn - 80s weird oppressive

All Available Light - thought-stream travel secret-history

Orbital - future meme-war psycho-singularity

All Tomorrows' Yesterdays - metahuman static politics

Old Shores - elemental 80's Jamaica

To Give Is Better - muse history world-shaping

Synapsis Imperfectus - future uploaded museum computer-brain

Solitaire's Journey - modern fresh-start night-train

Reality's Reflection - mirrorworld crystals safe-haven

Strange Reunions - cyborg agency world-saving

And Sometimes, We Forget - self-examination fears rationalisation

Time of Judgment - Werewolf desperateurban battle

Midnight Radio - modern ghost excorcist resolution

Bad Religion - sex drugs guns death-nuns

Never Alone - fire gang hate violence

Paragon - metahuman realism weird sex

Waiting for Thunder - 80s Thatcher stirring revolution

Carbuncle - 70's TV alien disease

I Met Myself Today at Tescos - modern normality shattered

God lay Dying - faith

Little Roger Fights a Bear - fairytale factual despair

Take Bak Sideways - future oppressive government reebllion

Rossum's Universal Arts-and-Crafts - weirdness by way of Wodehouse

Where The Streets Have No Name - qaballah gnostic modern magic

The Man Who Wasn't - conspiracy chaos dream realpolitik

One More Time - time-jump western chaos guns drugs

Strange Eden - technocratic futurist uplifting streamed ammo

Midnight White - alien cyborg sex drugs

28 stories. Even if one assumes 1500 words each, that's a lot of words

Dude, I regret to notify you that a lot of your URLs have slashes on the ends, which render them nonfunctional. Thought you ought to know.

Excuse me while I swear loudly an dload the last post in emacs.

Mmm, emacs. The thermonuclear swiss army chainsaw of editors.

All fixed.

Time of Judgment, because it's Werewolf and that pack deserves more words about it
Midnight Radio, because it's Orpheus, intentionally so or not
Bad Religion, because it makes me think of all the cool shit about the Invisibles.

God lay Dying: I want to see where you'll go with this. You've killed God, or more accurately, everyone killed God. What's next, then?

Bad Religion: The Death Nuns fascinated me. And the story was fun...

Where The Streets Have No Name: I'm enthralled with this little world, with monsters who hunt eternal heroes through the multiverse with their mechanical arms and irradiate minds...

1.) God lay Dying ... mainly because I gave you the title and you did an amazing piece I never thought could be done.

2.) Little Roger Fights a Bear ... even I don't know why this one calls to me.

3.) And Sometimes, We Forget ... because I can see myself in it.

er, only had time to read 4... but of them:

Where the Streets Have No Name was creepier than I normally like to read, but has plenty of sequel potential.
To Give Is Better would be cool to have a sequel of too - or something similar about another obscure deity-type. I like puzzles. :)

(I chose against And Sometimes, We Forget and God lay Dying - although both seemed like they belonged as excerpts from novels.)

Wonderful writing. So very, very hard to select only three overall to receive a sequel.

Reality's Reflection - An awesome premise to an RPG. I'd play :)

Bad Religion - Just because. Amazing imagery. I love the concept of the antipope, queen of sorrows, death nuns, all of it.

Waiting for Thunder - Feels like a work in progress. Would love to see the next chapter.

Unforutnately, I can't stick around at the moment to comment further. There are other worlds you have created that I would love to see more of, but their tales feel 'complete' as they are - All Tomorrow's Yesterdays, Where the Streets Have No Name and One More Time quickly come to mind.

Tired brain is running out of adjectives with which to praise your work. Awesome stuff.

Bad Religion

Where the Streets Have No Name

Strange Eden

Not necessarily my favorites, no, but the ones I want to know more about. Strange Eden, in particular, seems like a prelude to me. You have quite a habit of ending with a really neat "bang" of some kind...leaving the reader with a growl and "Well...WHAT HAPPENS!" Just because it sounds cool doesn't mean it's a satisfying ending. *wry grin*

Bad Religion
Tomorrow's Yesterdays
I Met Myself Today at Tescos (I know, it looks like it should be a one-shot, but I'm pretty sure you can do something with it)
Jun. 5th, 2004 06:43 pm (UTC)
One More Time - Hmm. Mnay realities, many possibilties.
Midnight White - is "it" dead, or have you just let yourself in for a whole world of hurt...
God Lay DYing - What the f***k comes next. faith is dead, what now?
