It has been another great month here at Fiction Vortex, and it’s now your turn to vote for your favorite story. We’ve had a wide variety of tales, so there should be something to satisfy just about every taste. Except you, yeah you, the weird guy who’s only interested in stories about fairy cakes. Sorry to disappoint, but we don’t do cakepunk.
This was big month of firsts, including our first fractured fairytale, our first true sword and sorcery adventure, our first foray into steampunk, and a riveting entrance into publishing space westerns. Riveting, we tell you! Carefully consider your favorite story of the month; and remember, the winner gets a cash prize, so wield your vote responsibly. As Colonel Mustard once said, “With great polls come great responsibility, young padawan.”
