I asked you to kill Dan Malmon and you delivered. The interwebs are covered in his blood spatter. OK, I’m a couple days late getting this up, but the final results of the Kill Dan Malmon Flash Fiction Challenge are in.
Following are Dan’s dozen dirty demises – shot, stabbed, running with scissors, doesn’t matter. The important thing is he’s good and dead. And dead. And dead.
I’m missing a couple of entries. A few folks (I’m not naming names, but you know who you are) didn’t follow the rules and did silly things like posted links to their stories on my Facebook timeline. Trying to dig those up, but I’ve got no idea how to find anything on there. So if that was you, and you’re reading this, then stick your story in the comments section here and I’ll add it to the list.
I’m forwarding the whole pile to Crimespree world headquarters in beautiful downtown Milwaukee. They’ll be running their favorite in a future issue of their illustrious magazine – and I’ll be sending that author a fit-for-framing check for $50.00 (and hey, if you decide to frame it instead of cash it, I’ll understand). The top two entries will receive free subscriptions. If you’re lucky, the Crimespree staff will get that done before the Reed Farrel Coleman swimsuit edition hits the news stands.
