Don's Edit: Don comes clean. I fat fingered SteveUK's score as 4.43 rather than 3.43. So Vin's The 5th Horseman is the Writer's Choice.
Steve will still get a Crappy Mug as everyone else in the top five already has a crappy mug. I have something special for Vin.
I rechecked the scores and that is the only mistake. Apologies for any trauma this may have caused. Of course I will refund the entry fees for this OWC to everyone who entered.
The Order of the Crappy Mug will be bestowed upon Stephen Wells (SteveUK)
for his script Play Dead
A second Order of the Crappy Mug will be bestowed upon Taylor Scott (VancityTaylor)
for having his script Everyone Has Their Own Demons
(written in a week under the name "Insert Name Here") sold yesterday. (Producer had to contact me since he couldn't find an email address for "Insert Name Here").
