2016 Winners

Congratulations to the winners of our inaugural Foreign Setting Short Story Contest:

1st Place

“The Cage” by John C. Hamilton


2nd Place

“Soloista” by Karen-Luz Sison


Our inaugural worldwide contest received a total of 60 initial entries and a dozen secondary entries. The constellation of foreign settings ranged from Central Asia to Central America and included South America, Europe, Australia, Iceland, Russia, India, Prague, Japan, the Himalayas, the Middle East, and out at sea, in the Underworld, and other strange and fantastical locations. After careful evaluation, we determined that the above two stories best fit our criteria. Special thanks to everyone who participated!
