“For those of you who were not at FantasyCon 2012 or who don’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 year’s competition; the standard was very high. If you didn’t quite make my top trio you are now, of course, free to submit your stories elsewhere. Good luck doing so.
It’s highly likely that I will be judging next year’s competition, so keep an eye out for updates on that.”
