I’ve been occasionally reading and commenting there for years as the community has shrunk down to only the most stalwart and bitter members. I take it as a great honor that my story was accepted and voted up by such people.

I suppose it’s not too surprising — it’s a dark story. But I’m proud of it. Hope I can get myself to do more writing in the future.
