Late to the party as usual, I find the buffet devestated.  :P

Help! I have tried getting both Anna Schwind and David Steffen's stories, but YouSendIt gives me the following message:

"The person who sent you this file has exceeded their download limit"

+1.

Just a note to let everyone know I've heard about the problem, and will try and get it fixed tonight.

Ah, yes, those are the ones I meant. Didn't bother to check back before plus-one-ing on Maplesugar's post.

Alright, everyone. We should be back in business. I'll shoot out a batch of stories to you all tonight, but in the meantime, you should be able to retrieve the ones you previously could not.

Yay!  You've prevented riots in the streets from lack of tricks or treats! 

Did anyone tell you that you're awesome?   ;D

Alrighty, then. Problems have been fixed, new stories by Amal El-Mohtar and Mur Lafferty have been sent out, and we are officially over the halfway point.

Rocking!

Also - just a little note: When I shot out Greg van Eekhout's and Tim Pratt's stories, I labeled them as #4 and #5. That was silly, because they are really #5 and #6. It should all be there in the .mp3 tags, but wanted to point it out here just in case anyone was wondering what was up.

Enjoy!

Hey, anyone want discussion threads for these stories?

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

Sure, discussion threads would be nice.  Although they're mostly so short that it's hard to tease out any specifics to get a good argument going.

shrug.  A few of them might spawn some nice discussion, and the rest can be for simple praise or critique.

I went ahead and sent the last couple stories out today - I thought everyone might want a chance to get them before the weekend officially started. Hope you all enjoy them, and if I don't see you before - have a Happy Halloween!

Any chance of these ever becoming available again? I'd hate to miss out on these just because I'm late to the game... (although I understand the concept of promotional stories :) )
