Vote For Pedro, Redux

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 15.678% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Apparently, my clerical coming-of-age-via-a-stabbing story “My Father’s Wounds” has made it to the final round of the “Best Of Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Year Three” poll.  Which is amazing!  I’m glad to see people liked it.
Now, the run-off is on a Facebook poll, where I am getting thoroughly trounced by Michael John Grist’s “Bone Diamond” and Heather Clitheroe’s “Gone Sleeping,” both of which are excellent stories.  But if you liked “My Father’s Wounds,” and feel so motivated, and have a Facebook account, then please go hither and vote.
(Side Note #1: I idly considered having Opposite Cat vote in the poll, but Opposite Cat mostly reads nonfiction.)
(Side Note #2: I really hate it when someone votes for someone just because they like the person in it, not because what s/he did was good.  It’s like, “Oh, my friend is in this beauty contest, vote for her!”  No, really, vote for her if you see her and she’s pretty to you.  Likewise, if you didn’t like “My Father’s Wounds,” or didn’t read it, kindly abstain.  That would just irk me.)
