Winners of the 2021 !Short Story Contest!



Never one to waste time,
the winners are:


GRAND PRIZE:

Safe Air
by Mike Wilson


RUNNER-UPs:

Snow
by Eris Young
&
Echo of Hollow Hooves
by Rachel Friedman


What a contest.

Some of our strongest writing, ever, and every single finalist received a Judge Vote. “Safe Air” was the run-away winner, with a vote from every judge, and three Grand Prize votes.


In the 75 days since we announced the finalists on June 14th, we have received 4,210 hits from 2,118 unique IPs.


Though Fan Voting didn’t have the usual turnout– there were only 63 cast!– the voting was especially interesting. We had a tie for the second runner up, so both received a half vote. Remember, each vote cast results in three votes, hence the screwy percentages…
