And a special mention for Aliette as well. Two stories in the top ten can't be bad!

Congrats, one and all - although I'd be lying if I didn't say I wasn't proud to see a fellow Fictioneer take the crown! :D Well deserved, GLP.

Congratulations to all the writers in the top 10 and sincere thanks to all the readers who voted. This result means a great deal to me and I am very grateful for the accolade.

"Ack-Ack Macaque" was first published in IZ212 with black & white illustrations by SMS. I encourage you all to visit his website and see the original, colour images: http://www.smuzz.org.uk/sms073.htm

Many thanks

GLP
