This is the Ninth round of the Title Writing Prompt Challenge. For them unfamiliar with the challenge, a quick summary: three writers offer the fruit of their labor and inspiration based on a given title.
The Round 9 Title — Behind the Green Door — was chosen by Perry. I’ll choose the title for the next round.
Assuming everyone has read the three stories titled Behind the Green Door, this is where you get to vote for your favorite. If you’ve not read the stories, links are provided below.
As a reminder, the writing challenge has no restrictions, and the stories span various genres. Most of the stories fall in the G and PG rating range, with a few pushing into the soft R-rating. Those ratings are guidelines, but they are subjective. If you find a story disturbing because of the topics, language, and/or plot points, stop reading and move on to the next one. The same goes if you are not interested in finishing a story. It may seem like obvious advice, but these days many people go out of their way to experience outrage (and then complain about it).
The stories can be found at the following links (including a blurb from each writer):

It’s Halloween. I couldn’t resist waking a few classic monsters from their coffins or crypts. James, a backyard bard, tells a campfire horror story that gets just a little too real for his audience of neighborhood children. In the end, we’ll find out who the real monsters are (insert evil laughter here…).

Rocco D’Angelo wanted to be his generation’s next Philip Marlow – the preeminent Private Investigator. But he screwed up and got a girl killed. Now, in the latter years of his abject career, he gets one final opportunity to redeem himself. However, the mission is virtually impossible. It’s his task to rescue a baby . . . a baby that died 30 years prior, unbaptized. It’s Rocco’s job to save her from Infant Purgatory!
For this round, the voting will close in about two weeks, Noon on Wednesday, November 16th, 2022.
Votes are nice, but the writers also appreciate reader comments (often, more so than votes . . . but, you know, they also like votes).
A new set of titles will be offered shortly.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
