Preditors & Editors Changeover

How Many Crits Can the Critters Ship, if the Critters Ship out Crits?
Recent # of crits per story. If you see one that looks lonely from this week, feel free to, y'know, have a look at it. (How lonely is lonely? Well, 15-20 crits is about average, so anything less is "below average".)
