Ralan's website has announced:
The 2006 winning stories will be published at midnight (CET) 31 October 2006. That's midnight this Halloween Eve!
CET is presumably Central European Time, which should be +6 hours from Eastern Time, and midnight would translate to my story showing up around 6pm ET on 30 October 2006 at the Spectravaganza.
So... first Dr. Phil e-published story next week.
