Vote for your favorite March 2010 Short Story!

It seemed we had some good responses from last month's poll, so let's do it again!

Standard disclaimer:

This is not official by any means. No one wins an award for being the "best". Discussion of votes is not only allowed but encouraged. You may, for example, want to mention another story that you also enjoyed. Or you may disagree with the votes so far. This is also a good area to compare stories to each other.

The only request I would have for this informal poll is that a voter read all the stories before voting. Oh, and play nice.

Okay, I'm with stupid. How do we vote? - and where can we put comments about why we voted for that particular story? submit

Hey, I must have scrolled down too far the first time, because, when I went out and came back, the voting place was at the top. Cool.
The reason I voted for The Table was because it is hard science, but the reader doesn't need to wade through a big info-dump somewhere. The information gradually comes to you through questions arising from the piece itself. I liked it. submit

Tough choices, but I voted for "The Moneymen." I thought it did a good job of presenting a believable future scenario that was scary, but without being preachy like some old Twilight Zone episode.

Lots of good stories to choose from, though.

I thought The Last Concerto the best of the lot this month. Stylistically, it was perfect. Great demonstration of the craft.

I also believe The Table and Moneymen to be strong stories. Both had some similarities: thought-provoking; cautionary; dystopian; told from a younger person's perspective.

I didn't care as much for the humorous stories this month, the exception being My Hands. Effective humor is difficult to write, so I'm not surprised.

Oh, and an honorable mention to Is There Something in the Attic. Horror isn't my favorite genre, but this one kept me riveted and impressed me with the technique.
