Competition: win FREE signed books

I've a copy of Gratia Placenti, the second anthology from Apex Digest, which features my story The Listening (most of the book is US horror, my story is a kind of slipstream pseudo-crime thing), with two copies of Apex Digest #7 for runners-up. (This one contains my story Kissing Cousins, a near-future speculative fiction foray, sitting amongst a host of space-horror.)

Just riddle-me-this, veggiebox fans:

The new Fiction Flash on Ian Hocking's blog is a podcast of my very short story Before Midnight? To be in with a chance of winning, you need to write the same events from the point of view of the narrator's partner. The ones I judge best will get the goods.

Leave your attempt as a comment on this post.

Alas this competition is only open to entrants with postal addresses in the UK. Not including Aliya.

I won't enter for the following reasons:

1) Not in the UK
2) Can't write short stories, much less short short stories
3) Am supposed to be writing my next book
4) Already have a copy of "Gratia Placenti"

Your story "The Listening" in it was excellent, by the way. But, then, I'm a sucker for selkies.

It's a good thing I didn't have to translate the title of the collection, though. I would have guessed "Gratia Placenti" meant "free fetuses". (Benefits of an American education, I suppose.)
