The name has changed, but the concept hasn't: Some of the best reading I've encountered!
         I've never found widespread success as a writer. I do, however, love to read a short story with a bite, and I'm discovering that WdC is a place where a lot of those are shared. I have, in various places, implored the writers of WdC to thrill me, and presented here is a personal "rogue's gallery" of those who have done just that. These earned 5-star reviews and come highly recommended!
