The winning entry was Carthage, Louisiana – Gateway to Kisatchie by Michael McNeill.
From the introduction:
This month’s topic is “Right Here in River City.” The challenge given was to describe a city on a river, in any genre, in less than 800 words. The locations described range from island fortresses to alien planets to alternate realities. Writers were allowed to submit more than one piece, and a few people chose to do so. Each entry is presented anonymously, however, and listed simply in alphabetical order by title.
