This One Made Me Laugh...

...from the word-play of the title, to the interjections en Español. Read Kurt Newton's "Hector's Last Stand" at Fifty-Two Stitches today. This was one of the first pieces we accepted, and it still leaves me in (oh, pardon the pun) stitches.

Speaking of stitches...should we keep the title, Fifty-Two Stitches, for the anthology? Something different?

Loved it. Very entertaining.

You could call it by the number of stories in the anthology, for example, Fifteen Stitches.

Do you intend to do 52 stitches 2010, 2011, etc, etc?

If yes, and we all hope so, then perhaps sticking with 52 Stitches Volume 1, 2009 would clarify things in years to come?

I agree that, from a marketing stand-point, you'd want to stick with the same name and just number them through the years/volumes. This way it creates a brand and doesn't easily confuse people.

I liked that story, like I have every other story I've read on there.

I'd keep the same name with the addition that comes with BT's suggestion.

Loved the story. And yeah, you should stick with the title as it is.

I say stick - I think 52 Stitches is a great title.
