    Great comp entry - very visceral. Really enjoyed reading it.

    Another intriguing comp piece, Stephen. I wanted to know more about the warrior – where he was washed up from, and who were coming for him. Lovely gentle tension throughout and so believable that it reads almost like memoir.

    Liking your story of the washed-up warrior.

    Intense comp entry, Stephen. A life lived the hard way but bringing its peaceful moments. Visual and enjoyable.

    Same bit as Barb - ghosts and young spirits - and the image of breakers in the moonlight. Nice. :-)

    Lovely flow to the narrative of your comp entry. "Young ghosts" is fabulous.

    Your comp entry is properly dark and dangerous.
