Re “The Pete Wood Challenge”

Just in case you missed "Would you like fries with that?" week here on Stupefying Stories, this is a link to all eleven microflash stories we published that week—albeit in LIFO order. We'll have to find a way to fix that.

If you missed "Wish You Were Here" week here on Stupefying Stories, this is a link to all ten microflash stories (I'm told they're probably termed "drabbles") we published that week. Despite the name, only one of these stories had anything to do with the old Pink Floyd album.

Right now we’re running "Timey-Wimey Week." We've published four stories so far—all longer than the previous weeks' drabbles—and if I've coded this right, this link should also take you straight to the fifth story (which all modesty aside, is a real knockout), when it goes live at 0700 CDT tomorrow morning.

If you’re looking for an explanation of The Pete Wood Challenge, and particularly if you’re looking for official rules, I’m afraid you’re going to have to track down Pete and ask him. I think he’s making it up as he goes along.
