“For those of you who were not at FantasyCon 2012 or who donâ€™t navigate their way through the Forum pages, I can now confirm that the winners of the BFS Short Story Competition are:
First place: Rope of Words by Megan Kerr
Second place: Green River by Aliya Whiteley
Third place: Saarbrucken Witch by Juliet Hubbell
All three stories will be appearing in a future print issue of The BFS Journal. My thanks to everyone who entered this yearâ€™s competition; the standard was very high. If you didnâ€™t quite make my top trio you are now, of course, free to submit your stories elsewhere. Good luck doing so.
Itâ€™s highly likely that I will be judging next yearâ€™s competition, so keep an eye out for updates on that.”
