Thank you to all of the writers who submitted. You don’t know how happy it makes us to see your entries hitting the inbox. The poll will let you vote for as many entries as you like, but this contest will only have one winner.

Because I changed the schedule this month, one of our long-time writers missed the deadline. I’ve shared his entry in the comments below because hwango’s stories are always guaranteed to bring a smile.
The voting poll closes on Thursday night, July 16th, at 11:45 pm EDT.

Whoops. And here is the poll.

    hwango’s Knothole entry:

    I think we were all surprised to see someone move in “next door.” I had certainly never thought of anywhere as being next door to Hell.

    But just beyond the lakes of fire and brimstone they built cozy little cottage. You’d think the sulfurous air would kill the grass, but of I guess even that respected the borders, because their lawn was the most vibrant green I could ever remember seeing.

    They put up a fence, of course. Simple, unpainted wooden slats. Presumably so they wouldn’t have to look at Hell all the time.

    There’s a knothole in one of the boards. We all look through it. We thought the devils would try to stop us, but I guess they figured out that we’re just torturing ourselves when we do. And I guess they don’t mind us doing their work for them.

    It really is the most amazing lawn.
