TSAT 43, story index

In this, TSAT's seventh anniversary issue, we would like to thank Jaggers Pawtucket for allowing us to are proud to present the winning entries in the second round of his RUET (Rarely Used Environment Transformation) Contest! This round's particular Rarely Used Environment was The Ocean, and no less than six authors rose to the bait (you should pardon the expression). Pig Boat, a tale of WWII terror by Typhon Dreckschtinger, came in first. Second place went to The Lutraic Principle, Kris Schnee's deliciously warped 'book review'. And in third place (out of six, so we can say 'last but not least'!) is Those Whom the Moai Scare, in which Charles Matthias sheds light on an archaeological mystery. We can hardly wait for Round Three!
