Though it's a fewer number of actual authors, it's more than any single challenge we've seen yet. I picked a bit of a "dark horse" for my vote.

It's an important element in Mark's different rules which encourages longer stories. So it's slightly important not to just automatically vote for one of the three longest tales "because it's more developed" - that's what the Flash here is supposed to mitigate against. But then, most of the tales were fantastic fun, while a couple went for "more thought than fun".

This challenge did stretch the imagination. I liked it. Had some trouble coming up with a story, but, well, it's the work that helps one's writing.
