Well, I’m truly happy that my work (“Crickets”) made the Shortlist, but (sadly) that’s as far as it went.
PULP Literature announced the winner of the 2018 Hummingbird Prize for Flash Fiction and the winner is……
Nicholas Christian for “The Angler”
Contest Judge Bob Thurber had this to say:
“The language of ‘The Angler’ blisters like sunburn. The edges of this very short (under 600 words) story are prickly bright and they’ll leave blind spots on your eyes for days. Congratulations to the winner, and thank you for the enjoyable daze. Your story outshined a long, sunny list of finalists.”
Congratulations to Mr. Christian and to (Runner-Up) Robert Runté (“Day Three”).
I’m certainly looking forward to some great reading.
