Definitely better than my effort. Honestly. I think the criteria for inclusion in the short list was the centrality (?) of the Black Horse in the story. We have very incidental references, the shortlisted stories all have a very prominent reference - Mug with a Black Horse handle, Black Horse Piss (wtff?), first-person-narrative-by-BH...

So there you go, I've created a way for both of us to feel superior to the shortlisted entries :).

Thanks Sud :-) As for the centrality, AFAIK, the guidelines just said use it as trigger, so I wasn't sure how much it had to matter. I was a little puzzled at one or two of the shortlisted efforts myself (though some of the rest were quite good). Anyway...

Ramanand,
that was a good one!
Wish I had written a short story too so that I could ask you to return (a pinch of salt plz) the favour, at least as an act of driving the traffic.
