Okay, here we go!
The entries will post in two chunks: Numbers 1-25 beginning at 9:00 Eastern, and Numbers 26-50 beginning at noon Eastern.
All entrants, please be sure to critique a minimum of five other entries.
All critters, please remember to focus on whether the open hooks you or not, and, if not, to explain why.
Have fun! Some real gems in here, as usual.
