Nat'l Novel Writing Month Short Story Challenge, Day Nineteen

Today's suggestion is from Justin Purnell: "The Greatest American Short Stories 2006"

"Hangman's Gambit"
by Rex Fitzcartwright
Winner, First Prize, Greatest American Short Stories 2006

He went out to the shed after sharpening the axe.

"Feel how sharp this is," he said to the child he had tied up in the shed.

"Wow," said the boy, "that's sharp."

"If your father ever wants to see you alive again," he said, "if he doesn't want you to get better aquainted with this axe, he had better award my story first prize in the Greatest American Short Stories Competition."

"What is the name of your story?" said the boy.

"'The Hangman's Gambit,'" said the man.

"Why do you want him to do that?" said the boy.

"So the award will create buzz for my novel, 'Dreams Of Spiders,' a manuscript of which I have included with my submission packet," said the man.

"What else are you going to include in the packet?" said the boy.

"THIS!" said the man, and chopped off the boy's left pinky.
