Short Story Marathon / Giveaway #7: Incident at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce

Quick and Dirty Summary:
It’s the civil war and a Southern civilian is being hung for attempted sabotage. I can’t really say anymore without spoiling the ending, but think about this: right now are you awake or are you dreaming that you’re awake?
Good stuff!
I listened to this from Audible, read by Robert Englund (the original Freddie Kruger). Amazing reader!
This is part of the Short Story Marathon. Here’s what you could win:
Third Runner Up: $5 Gift Certificate to Silver Publishing.
First and Second Runners Up: Free copies of Dark Angel, All the Stars

Thirty virgins! Well . . . not exactly. The Grand Prize is a story a day in June from the First Time For Everything Dreamspinner Press Daily Dose anthology, a collection of stories about virgins and their first time. My short story, "The Moon House" is included.
