    Inside this book are 52 short stories I wrote for The Writerís Cramp internet website daily contest. For this prompt contest, we had 24 hours to write a story of no more than 1,000 words or compose a poem that didnít exceed 40 lines. Creativity counted more than correct spelling and grammar, although I am a firm believer in using a spellchecker.

    My stories, many that won and some that lost, cover a wide range of genres. A few are autobiographical; some are science fiction or fantasy; others eventually became chapters in my published and unpublished novels. I hope you might even find one or two of them amusing enough to elicit a chuckle.

    I am offering a challenge for anyone reading this collection. If one of the 52 prompts inspires you to write a story, give it a try.
