Citizens of Punchnel’s: Welcome to summer. And thank you to all of the talented, sexy writers who submitted to our Summer Stories Contest. We asked for hot, possibly beachy, decidedly summery tales, and you came through with salt, barbecued rabbit, and so much more. We’re so grateful (and slightly glazed from all that reading).

And now?

We have a winner.

Oh gosh, it’s a doozy.

We can hardly wait to share it with you, but wait we will.

Watch this space Monday for “Frogman,” by Con Chapman–a story that we’re very proud to publish. Congratulations, Con, and much appreciation for bringing this story to us.

In the meantime, thanks for stopping by. Make sure you reapply every 90 minutes.
