I'd like to nominate the man that time forgot. It's in two parts though, so I don't how you would want to do that, but I thought the story was really good and one of the better ones I've read on here recently.

Thank you for your nomination! If you care to look at the nominations thread, you'll see that I've posted the entire story in one part.

If you see anything else that you think is worthy of a nomination, feel free to come back here and post.

I want to nominate Hiroshima Girl by starrwriter. There are probably others I'd like to nominate, so I'll be back.

I nominate "The Mirror Man" by Azmacna. Interesting psychological tale.

Starr, while your nomination is a good choice, it was posted on 13th August, 2007 and does not qualify.

If you see anything else worth nomination, feel free to post here.

Devon, thank you. I'll add your nomination to the list.

Could I nominate the Breath You Take by Queen of Hearts? It's an excerpt but I still think its worthy of publication.

Cuchulain, Queen's piece was posted last year (both parts), and hence does not qualify. Please read this part of the entry requirements:

Note: I have edited the first post in order to make the dates clearer.

I'm afraid that was posted in December 2007 so is not eligible. Nominations must come from work posted between 1 February - 20 April 2008. Sorry!

He'd have to clean it up grammatically, but Why did the Chicken Cross the Road? by l33tm4s73rj03y struck my fancy and tickled my funny bone.

Default Bump!

Today is the last day for nominations, folks.

If there is anything you think worthy of being published in the next issue of In Pencil, then you need to tell us about it before the thread is closed for voting.

So far we have:

The Man that Time Forgot by Lost Traveler
Hiroshima Girl by starrwriter
Hatter's Ridge by Queen of Wands (what?!!!)
Once by Titania
Pieces by Titania
Devour by Skhull
Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road by l33tm4s73rj03y
