Allen Ashley, the judge for the BFS Short Story Competition, reports the following:
I am pleased to announce the results for this year’s British Fantasy Society Short Story Competition. This year I received a record-breaking crop of entries with 110 eligible 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: “Warm Gun” by David Gullen
Second place: “Flotsam and Jetsam” by Rowena Harding-Smith
Third place: “The Eden Project” by C. L. Raven
As well as their authors winning prizes, all three of these stories will appear in a future issue of BFS Horizons.
A big thank you to everyone who took the time and effort to support this year’s competition.
