    Thanks re the comp, Hel. Yours was a good, dark piece. Great depiction of the monster that can rear within a mother under those circumstances.

    Nice comp entry, Alan. It sent shivers down my spine. The required blood and violence read well. I can see a few blokes crossing their knees rather tightly while they read this one.
