"When they discover the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to discover they are not it." ~Bernard Baily
That quote popped up as one of the quotes of the day on my igoogle home page. It's very true but does not apply to two people today: Michael J. Solender and Sam Adamson who are, in fact, sharing the incredible glare of the spotlight.
Michael released his E-chapbook today at his blog not from here, are you? The 80 stories included were entries in his Dog Days of Summer Contest during the summer. The stories had to contain the words 'summer' and 'heat' and had to be exactly 101 words in length.
Contest winner was Sam Adamson for his story The Pit of Hades. You can find him lurking at his blog Future; Nostalgic. Take a moment and read Michael's funny interview with Sam at The Not. And then pour a glass or mug or whatever of your favourite bevvy and sit and read the wonderful stories in the Dog Days of Summer chap. My story, Escaping the Heat, can be found on page 48 of this fine publication.
