Finally, you may read the story the panel of editors selected from all entries as the winner of Dragons, Knights & Angels' fiction contest. It's a story with quirkiness and a fresh look at . . . redemption?
Humor and an unreliable narrator add that extra bit of "Well, did he or didn't he?" that made this story stand out among the competition. One of the judging criteria was "innovative use of the elements." See for yourself if the judges were right.
I present for your reading pleasure, the winner and his tale:

And here's a taste--the story's opening lines:
I don’t know how I died, but I’m certain it happened at some point. I still eat, yes; drink, of course; and take care of business at the other end of the food chain, as my mother used to say. Nevertheless, I am quite dead. There’s no other explanation for...things.
