TWA #15 – Cult Classic Battle Thread!

“The Elixir” by Nicholas Alti


“Faith Detector” by Albert Berg

Cult Classic This week’s short stories are all about the cult of personality here in the arena. What compels a person to amble down the strange road of group-thinking and forgo any notions of outside perspective? Fear? Charisma? Greed?

Or maybe it’s the cool initiation rites?

Our authors were asked to give us stories of cults for this week’s battle, though the cult’s major tenant had to turn out to be true.

Albert Berg represents the arena with his short story: “Faith Detector.”

Battling back is the challenger for this week, Nicholas Alti with: “The Elixir.”

Battle #15 is live!

Read! Vote! Comment! Enjoy!

We have two judges that will render their decision by Friday. The third vote comes from you, the readers. We ask that you read both stories objectively, and then leave a comment below or on the story itself. Authors aren’t allowed to comment on their own stories, but we’re sure they’ll be checking in here. We’ll tally up the totals and announce our champion on Friday.
