A Bloody Good Idea... #horror

In anticipation of the upcoming release of the next South African HorrorFest Bloody Parchment anthology, published in association with the uber-cool eKhaya, I'm going to give away three ecopies of last year's Bloody Parchment: Hidden Things, Lost Things and Other Stories to three lucky entrants. All you need to do is answer a simple question based on the blurb of this year's anthology.

This year's Bloody Parchment: The Root Cellar and Other Stories brings a fresh crop of horror and dark literature from the most recent South African HorrorFest Bloody Parchment short story competition. From dreary subterranean chambers and angelic visitations to the many-legged horrors of alien invaders and a meeting with the Devil himself, this collection of tales offers readers the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the likes of Toby Bennett (winner), and runners-up Anna Reith and Chris Limb. Finalists include Diane Awerbuck, Simon Dewar, Zane Marc Gentis, Stephen Hewitt, Benjamin Knox, Lee Mather, Glen Mehn, S.A. Partridge, and Icy Sedgwick.

So, now, for the big question, what is the title story of this year's anthology? (If you're sharp, you'll figure it out. If not, I suggest you ask Toby Bennett.) If you're a bright spark, you've got until midnight on May 24 to leave your answer, your name and an email address as a comment on this page.
