Defenestrationism.net and
the 2019 !Short Story Contest!

!Winners Now Announced!

We have stories very brief, and stories very long; stories with a thought, and stories with a laugh— often, both in one.

In the 2019 !Short Story Contest! on Defenestrationism.net , lives are saved and lives are destroyed— both by both heroes and hurricanes.

In one story, a divine work ends in a library;
but, the psychedelic outskirts of our minds, the auctioning block, the anonymity of an unmarked mental ward— these all are but the grim beginnings of where our 2019 Contest will take us.

But all grows; bellies grow (with sometimes unusual fruit); relationships grow; faith grows, though, sometimes, maybe, not as much as doubt; patience grows thin, as the patient grows thinner; though sanity, certainly, grows thinnest of all; and more-than-one author published here, before, grow as well.

Dads do what dads tend to do— as well as the opposite— while mothers in this year’s contest do all kinds of interesting things; and one loudmouth Granny gets what she deserves.

Youth is halted, while, separately, the coffin is canonized.
