The Pyromantics - The WINNER of The Pyromantics Halloween Tale 2007
"First of all I'd like to say a big thankyou to everyone for making the competition a success. We had a much bigger response that we expected, and it's awesome so thank you. Now we actually realize how many ace writers we have in our group and feel very priviledged. BIG SCARY THANKYOU to one and all. If you haven't already please check out and read the winning entry 'The Observations of Doctor Briant' by K.C.T. Webber and leave Kenneth some comments. I'm sure he'd appreciate it. Also, don't forget we've got tons of other great stories to be read! ~ Cat"
