Correct! There are two runoff polls currently, and once they're finished and we know who wins third place in groups 18 and 19, the next round will go up.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Groups 18 and 19 will be closing out a bit later today and then I'll be posting Round 2 Group 5 right after! I'm shooting for ~9 EST to get that all up, so stay tuned!

The final bell has been rung, the curtains drawn, the battle... over.

And only three remain standing. Battered, bloody, but alive (we think).

VICTORY belongs to the winners of the PseudoPod Flash Fiction Contest VII!

In first place, with 21 votes, the undisputed champion Got Your Nose by Karlo Yeager Rodriguez!
In second place, with 14 votes, Weapons They Gave You to Fight the Blood Monster by Hannah Whiteoak!
And in third place, after a particularly vicious tiebreaker, with 12 and then 26 votes, Overnight Home Companion by Frank J. Oreto!

Certainly deserving of an honorable mention for a hard-fought tiebreaker is Fishing Season by Anna Madden -- that was neck and neck for a long time!

Thank you, once again, to all of our authors, voters, and commenters -- you are all amazing people and this contest would be nothing without you!

Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Yup, mine's also closed. I was just wondering whether we should be expecting notification of rejection in the usual manner, or whether it's just a matter of checking in here? (I know I was out in a very early round!)
