Demolition Magazine #3 - and a contest

The latest issue of Demolition Magazine is out and it has stories by Gerald So, Paul Guyot, Stephen D. Rogers, Todd Robinson, Justin Porter, Stephen Blackmore, and Jeff Shelby. And me. I thought my story was quite fine until I read it a few minutes ago and found a mistake in it. It's just a letter added to a word that changes it into another word, but the effect is comical to me. Probably just to me.

Anyway, first person to email me with the error gets a free book. A copy of my first book. Or maybe my fourth (but that would mean a wait until it appears in October).

BTW, the winners of my latest contest will be notified tomorrow on this spot.

Errors in DEMOLITION? I think not. You must have hacked into our server and fiddled with it so you had a reason to run your contest. Shameless Mr. Torres, shameless.

Shameless perhaps, but one damn fine story. Well played, Mr. Torres.

Steven:
That story moves - I enjoyed it. Didn't see the mistake, probably because I was too caught up in the action. Good job.

Aldo,
Nope. That's just Viktor's difficulty with the English language. Russian doesn't have articles of speech and he sometimes forgets them. Good try. When you find the word with an extra letter, you'll know it was Steven's goof, not Viktor's.

Stephen and Manuel,
Many thanks. Stephen, I read your story "Breaking in the new guy". Very cool. And Mr. Ramos, I read your "No Hablo Inlges" over at Hardluck. Smooth as always. Gave me the creeps when the guy gets lost in the shrine to Our Lady of Death. What's up with that?

OK, how about here...Mr. Feder seemed deflated. Was the word defeated?

Aldo,
So far you're the only one who has tried, so I'll get the book out to you. As for what the mistake was -- there's a big difference between harvesting cocoa and harvesting coca. They're both valuable crops, but... well, one might need armed protection and the other, not so much.

I find the mistake funny because it seems like these tough guerilla fighters are protecting the Nestle bunny to me and that's not quite what I meant.
