A note on the WGI winning stories

Ordinarily I would begin the process of posting the winning stories right away. But because there has been an immediate interest this year from some zines, I want to give the winners the opportunity to consider whether to publish their stories here or elsewhere.

Publishing in a quality zine rather than on my blog could be a boost to the story and author. But there are many zines that will not republish, they want only original stories. So although I know several folks are anxious to read the winning stories, hang on to your patience while the authors try to sort out what's best for them and their stories.


  1. Not only is that a good call, it's a great gesture on your part. I look forward to reading the work wherever it is. Congratulations to the winners, organisers and those who took part. Whoever gets the work will be very lucky, I have no doubt about that.

  2. I hope you're including your story in that statement. If by some weird circumstance you don't find a home for Blue Danube Waltz, I'd love to publish it here.
