Here is what I figured out from the almost continuous emails today.
1) In general people liked it... but it is no Stupid Boy.
2) Too short - People like more character development than they can get in the short story. They also felt like I left them hanging with some lose ends.
3) Some wanted to continue. A few thought it was a complete waist of their time and that if I did a serial I would end up having to escalate each book to the point of using nuclear weapons... You all should try writing and see the fun feedback you get ;-)
Do Over Story
1) There is a group that really likes them and had some good suggestions. Frankly I was going in a different direction, but hey... not bad ideas.
Sword & Magic
1) WOW! It won hands down... not even close for second place (Do Over).
I have the beginning of the three choices... now it is time to write.
