You would expect with only 42 words to work with judging would go quickly, but not this time. We received a lot of very creative entries this month, but one was the clear winner in the end. For a very short, very well executed piece, our congratulations to Drayton Alan for winning this month’s eSpec Books Flash Fiction Contest. Dayton’s prize is publication on the eSpec blog and one free ebook from among the eSpec publication list.
