Glorifying Terrorism competition results

Looks like we have a winner.

In case you want to re-read, the two entrant stories can be found here. The public vote is narrowly in favour of ‘Guy Fawkes Day’, which I can now reveal to be the work of Tanya Brown; if you email me your snailmail address, Tanya, I’ll send you your copy of the anthology withing the next few days.

The other untitled piece received strong praise from Jetse de Vries, a man who knows a thing or two about fiction. Jetse will probably be amused to find out that he already knows of the author of this piece – it’s none other than Gareth L. Powell, who has had work published in Interzone before now. So, no book for Gareth, I’m afraid – but I’ll be seeing him at Eastercon, so I’ll get him a beer or two as runner-up.

Thanks for taking part, writers and readers both. I’ll have to do this again some time.

  1. I am indeed very amused by this (and yeah, now you know why I lifted “The Last Reef” from the slushpile some two years ago).

    If all goes well, I’ll be sharing a few of those beers at EasterCon, as well. It’ll be the first time Gareth and I meet.

  2. Jetse, I just responded to your thoughts on the drabbles over on the last competition page.

    Oh, and I look forward to seeing you again at Eastercon – hopefully I won’t end up so tragically pissed this time.

  3. There isn’t one, as far as I know – witness some of my replies that have been longer than the original posts! Maybe a browser bug or something. I’ll transcribe the emailed comment you sent me in after this …
