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

This one was a longer version, right?  I think the added material helped...

It's only longer by 50 words, but I made a lot of small changes all over the place.  The premise is the same, but I think this version does a better job at conveying the story.

I thought it was a great reading by Graeme.  One of the reasons I like audio fiction so much is that the end result is more than just the vision of the writer.  The reader can add so much when they're well suited for a story.   Grin

I think this one has stuck in my mind the most so far (though I've some catching up to do).  Great story.

I've gotta give a huge shout-out to Graeme, not just for this one, but for all three of the narrations he did for Tricks or Treats. He just absolutely nailed each of them.

I'm toying with the idea of creating a novelized version of this one.  With many more characters and events and setting detail, of course.  So far I haven't had much luck maintaining enough momentum to finish a novel, so I'm hoping I can follow this one through!
