Ah, The Winners...

Linked for your enjoyment, without comment, your 2014 winners of the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest.

Oh hell, I'll comment anyway and include the science fiction winner:
The spaceship hovered like a saucer, only rounder, deeper, the product of an unholy union between dessert plate and finger bowl, as any of the villagers familiar with traditional service à la russe dining could plainly see. — Suzy Levinson, Sunnyside, NY
And because you can never have too much It was a dark and stormy night, the runner-up:
It was a dark and stormy night, as it would be for the next 23 years on the world of Lo’soun, a lop-sided planet that rolls around its axis like one of those spinning tops kids have, and for the next 23 years the brave space colonists would have to live without light, warmth, or the screaming, car-sized cicadas that only come out in the summer. — Matthew Hannum, Glen Burnie, MD
Hey, I've already written a story on car-sized cicadas!

Maybe I can be a winner someday. (grin)
