A New Number One

Bill Crider has received more hits (think stats and not assassination attempts) in the first two days than any other story we have featured at BEAT to a PULP. If you haven't read "The Quick ... and The Dead" I highly recommend you do. Nigel Bird summed this dark tale up quite nicely by saying "That is really a story built up in layers to perfection. A dark and difficult subject well handled and I really felt the pain and the torn loyalties."

Rounding out BTAP's top five most successful:

2. A Rip through Time * Chris F. Holm

3. Insatiable * Hilary Davidson

4. The Instrument of Their Desire * Patrica Abbott

5. Miles to Go * Edward A. Grainger

You bet, Bill.

And thanks again.

I've been out of pocket, David, so I missed all this! Now I have to catch up by reading the stories- which you have some pretty darned good ones by the sound of it.

I love those stories with that 'gifted element'! They're treasures.

Congrats to all!

I had read all but Patti's story. Now I've read all of them. I love the even tone of her narrator; I can hear that woman's voice. What a gift.

David Cranmer said...

107 worth, Rick.

And glad to have you back.

Alyssa, That extra something that puts them over the top.

Ron, Patti's "The Instrument of Their Desire" was our very first story in 2008. I haven't stopped thanking her for starting us off on such a high note.

So who's leading in assassination attempts?

David Cranmer said...

Hard to predict really...

Bill's was the most unusual story yet given the author.
Hey, thanks, Ron. That was nice to hear.
