Posted by tcook on Fri, 18 Dec 2009
These are Tony Cook's picks and he hopes that you have enjoyed them as much as him.
Sikander's 'Stargazing': http://www.abctales.com/story/sikander/stargazing
With honourable mentions to Annabel Wigoder for 'Adam's Hands': http://www.abctales.com/story/annabelwigoder/adams-hands and Chelsey Flood for '10 things I couldn't Say to You': http://www.abctales.com/story/chelseyflood/ten-things-i-couldn-t-say-you
Hai Anh's 'And She Is Drowning Before The Silt': http://www.abctales.com/story/haianh/and-she-drowning-silt
With honourable mentions to dilletante's 'Soliloquy in Yellow': http://www.abctales.com/story/dilletante/soliloquy-yellow and kilb50's 'The Poet Laid Bare' : http://www.abctales.com/story/kilb50/poet-laid-bare
A very special mention too to the piece that made me gasp with wonder the most in the year - the incredibly clever and really rather wonderful 'A Star Rises As Dean Realigns Tina's Destiny (or Dean, Tina and Stan in Pain Triangle). This only uses letters from the words 'desperately seeking' http://www.abctales.com/story/chelseyflood/star-rises-dean-realigns-tina...
Book of the Year goes to Christine for her extraordinary 'A Neurotic's A-Z of Breast Cancer': http://www.abctales.com/set/christine/neurotics-z-breast-cancer
With honourable mentions to Jennifer for 'Unbelievable': http://www.abctales.com/set/jennifer/unbelievable-novel and niki72 for 'We'll Be Happy Once Again Never Mind': http://www.abctales.com/set/niki72/attempt-number-one
This is a purely arbitrary choice made by Tony Cook but congratulations are due to the winners and better luck for next year to everyone else!
