And since we are only waiting for one final section, I think it's time I prepare the next magazine :mrgreen: Will post the link here once it's up and running.
Yay! :clap: Already looking forward to that! :mrgreen:

Hi Sonia, I'll have to un-claim section 2! :? Apologies to have delayed the project, some unforeseen time limitations came up for me the last few weeks. I'm sure a great reader will grab it! It's a delightful little story.

awww I'm sorry to hear that Hulda, but yes, unforseen events do happen. :( I am grateful that you told me as soon as you knew, at least that way the project is not stagnating. :thumbs: And the Black Cat magazine will continue on for quite some time still, so I'm hoping that I'll be hearing you again in one of the later editions :)

And you know what, I'll be taking over this story, that way we can stay fully claimed right away. :mrgreen:

Of course if I'm reading I need another volunteer to PL my section. Would any of you readers be willing to listen to it later on ? :help: I guess I can read and edit it tomorrow, so we can wrap this one up soon. :9:

and here is the final story, not a pleasant one I'm afraid. Bud seems to be a budding psychopathic killer in the making :evil: I hate cruelty to animals as pass-time for bored people. The only redeeming point is that the story breaks off before the finale, so readers like me are left hoping that there will be a happy-ending for the monkey.

Recording time: 8:31 min.

Any volunteer to PL this final section ?

Thanks in advance

and while waiting for the final PL job, I wanted to share with you the little teasers I concoted up this time for each of your stories. I hope you all find them fitting. I also took care not to do too many spoilers:

A Calaveras hold-up: can love make a man mend his ways or are some relationships doomed from the start ?
From a trolley post: a boring bus-stop wait is interrupted by a young boy's favourite pastime of hunting animals
An andenken: the story of a young artist's budding love in the romantic, yet wild landscape of the Tyrolian Alps
The man from Maine: a chance encounter in a train shows the resourcefulness of some people to get what they most want
A wedding tombstone: wouldn't a tombstone be a macabre wedding gift from a husband to his newly-wed bride ?
The other one: in his dark wine-cellar, an old man makes a chilling confession to his bank-clerk
Stateroom six: the bad luck of a gambler proves the good fortune of a young girl
Her eyes, your honor: a resourceful lawyer stops at nothing to save a woman from the gallows

yes me too :( even though, I like to think that the monkey out-tricked Bud somehow and the boy fell down the balcony :twisted: serves him right.

Thanks for the fast PL, Nemo :9:

Now I will proceed to archive this little gem. Will post back once it's done.

Thank you so much for all the great contributions: Dan, Katie, Shanna, Julie, Nemo, Todd and J. :D I hope to hear you all again in one or more of the next issues.
