The British Fantasy Society Short Story Competition 2013 – Results

BFS_Logo_(red_gradient)Allen Ashley, judge of this year’s BFS Short Story Competition, reports the following:

“Thank you to everyone who took part in and supported this year’s BFS Short Story Competition. The number of entries was up significantly from last year with 103 stories submitted for consideration. I read every story thoroughly and silently. I read a large percentage of the stories twice, three times or more. After much deliberation, I can now announce that the three winners are:

First place: “Pawnarchy” by Mark Huntley-James

Second place: “The Manhattan Room” by Zoe F. Gilbert

Third place: “Summertime in Paris” by S. Marcus Jones

As well as their authors winning prizes, all three of these stories will appear in a future issue of “The BFS Journal”.

For those of you who didn’t make the top three this year, it was a hard task judging them all and many of the stories should find a suitable home elsewhere. Thank you for your patience during the judging process. You are now free to submit your story to other markets. Good luck.”
