Is that really 15,000, Tania? Wow. That's staggeringly well done by Vanessa. Can't wait to read it.

Umm, Tom, my screw-up, in all the excitement I added an extra '0'. 1500 entries. 15000 would have been all short story writers in the known universe!

Anne and Nik, isn't it great?!

1500 short stories is a heck of a lot of stories anyway. And actually, when you think about it, a heck of a lot of dosh going into the Fish coffers too. Congrats to Vanessa.
