    NO! Don’t repost stories – it messes up my stats, and also potentially dilutes your votes for the Community Pick award.
    If you – or anyone else – needs an edit, leave a comment under your story with the changes […]

    It’s easy, Alva, if he doesn’t take his medication… 😉

    Well played, young man. Another one for the anthology.

    “…that obese paedo-philanthropic pogonophile”! HO! HO! HO!
    Nice work, Geoff.

    Chilling story, Nancy.

    Ha! I was about to point out that the PC term is ‘Native Americans’, until I realised what you meant. (It’s been a long night…)

    Oh, Caleb… You can take extended leave from Microcosms more often, if you come back with a cracker like this! I genuinely laughed out load more than once. Bravissimo!

    Good to have you back, AJ. This is only your second entry in 13 weeks – even Liverpool’s defense have a better record than that!
    But what a cracking comeback. Loved it!

    You still haven’t addressed the problem with “Starlight was too busy having a glaring contest with her cat to notice.” which implies that Starlight is the name of the witch, not the cat! You could give the wit […]

    Now you’re just showboating, Bill! To make things fair for the rest of us, we may have to ask you to work on your submissions with one arm tied behind your back… 😉

    Welcome to Microcosms, Justin.
    I suppose witches make a few mistakes while training, although the familiar’s reactions seem to imply this one may be just downright incompetent! 🙂 Nice story.

    Welcome to Microcosms 95, flashionistas: another feast of Friday flash fiction fun.

    REMEMBER: this post is scheduled for release at the usual time of 00.00, Friday, New York (EDT) time. You have just 24 hours […]

    Oh, Sian! I’m blushing with embarrassment at your glowing response. Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.

    I missed this first time round, but looking at the Favourite Lines chosen by the judge in the MC 93 Results post, I saw you had ‘We crest a rise, a soldier to my left wretches at the sight.’
    ‘Wretch’ is a noun – […]

  • Thanks to all who participated in Microcosms 93. There were a goodly 19 entries this week. Welcome back to long-lost friends, Alva Holland, Dana M Faletti, Richard Edenfield and, last seen in round 58, Nancy […]

    Bee-oot-iful (Sorry… couldn’t stop myself) job, Angelique. Clever perspective on the prompt.

    Hey, I’m a Microcosms administrator – it’s my job! 😉

    Thanks for the compliment, Alva.

  • Geoff Holme commented on the post, Microcosms 93, on the site Microcosms 1 month ago

    Thanks, JK. I enjoyed writing this one. I usually write everything I need to say in a story, then find I’m way over the 300 limit and have to edit drastically, at the expense of something I had believed was […]
