It was a totally unexpected and very pleasant surprise to log into ATS late last night and see I won the AIASP short story contest. I am very flattered, especially given the great nature of the other stories, and talent of the other writers here.

This story “The Index To Her Soul” was written in a single sitting, over the course of many hours, and spoke fairly deeply to me. Since writing this story, I’ve been haunted by the vision it presents -- of sadness, horror, and hope. I don’t like dwelling on that vision, and haven’t visited that thread for some time now (hence my lack of replies to those that have added to my original thread.)


I thought it was an appropriate story for ATS, which is one of the premier sites I have found that discusses consciousness theories, and alternate realities. Although we all know that ATS is the leader in conspiracy theories, I don’t know how many people are also aware that ATS is a heavy-hitter in the serious area of Cognitive Sciences as well.

Consciousness – what is it? You tell me, I don’t know, but I think some of us might be figuring that out here soon! (As likely here as somewhere else!)

What I love about ATS, and its members, is that we are all thinking in a similar fashion about these topics. Add to that the real genius and insight you find over and over again, posted by talented members in many different forums – you can see why I spend so much time here (if that reason is lost on my family and friends) and why I am so proud, and humbled, to have contributed a distinguishing post at ATS with this story.

To my fellow writers – what can I say? Art imitates reality. Keep writing, and I will keep reading. You are all the greatest!

Thanks again, and most sincere best regards!

Well said, Buck.

There are a TON of places where writers can go on the internet to dink around...get involved in contests and peer-reviews and all that good stuff that cuffs your writer's block to the side for a moment.

But I tell you what, I dare you to find one as "topic rich" as ATS.

That's why I'm here...always something to tickle the "WHAT IF."

Congratulations again. Write on.

Your words are heart felt my cyberfriend. I truly look forward to your next entry. You can write anytime it does not have to be a contest. You write, we read
