My favorite complete story of the issue! rockon I loved the pace of this story, and the way the main character's obsession becomes her life. And what a perfectly chilling ending.

I just wanted Gra Linnaea & Sarah Dunn to know I recommended this story for a Stoker in the Short Fiction category.

Making this story available for HWA members to read via a link could garner more recommendations. (Only HWA members have access to the Stoker sheet. One of the perks of becoming a member is you get to read a lot of free fiction--and even receive free Stoker recommended books!) If you're not members, let me know and I'll pass on the info.

Ken--all you need to do is upload the file to wherever you can and send me the link. I'll pass on that info to the Stoker guy. I'll also post it in the "Eligible Stoker Work" section where people are allowed to announce works that are available for Stoker consideration.

What a great story! I've been looking for this sort of thing. I agree this deserves an award. BTW my very first experience on a social network site was in the hours after the Virginia Tech shooting--the media reported on how the MySpace pages of the victims had become a place for friends to write to, or about, the dead. I didn't have a MySpace account, but I clicked on through. MySpace must have been built differently from Facebook, because I was able to simply follow links and see it all for myself, even though I had no connection with those people... including the transition from postings from that living person to the necessary yet impossible postings of grief, astonishment, and commemoration by the survivors. As it says in the story: "The important things--the things worth saying--are always said too late."
