Forum Flash Challenge for September 2013

Congratulations to our own Poetry Editor Iain Muir, winning with his first entry into the challenges. Iain's story, "Caveat Emptor" topped some stiff competition. Iain won both the anonymous cash prize and also that lovely virtual ice gnome trophy. Read his story and four other sinister tales inspired by Lovecraftian-style books here.
