Epic Flash Fiction Competition: Short-list


Wow! We are so pleased with the overwhelming response to our Epic Flash Fiction competition.

You lot have certainly kept us busy late into the night(s), reading and rereading your stories. We are also really impressed with the quality of the stories. Capturing the spirit of epic fantasy in under 1,000 words is not easy.

So without further ado, it gives us great pleasure to announce the short-list:

(in no particular order)

The Will to Live by Ro Smith

Musings from atop a Mountain of Skulls by Kev Clarke

Snakebite by Kev Clarke

Rise of the Huntress by Andrew Reid

Dark Dealings by Eric Edwards

Awakening by Lisa Pearson

The Noble Death by Kai Savage

These 7 great stories will go through to the next round of judging. Our very special guest judge James Barclay now has the rather daunting task of choosing the winning three stories.

We would like to personally thanks everyone who has entered and offer condolences to those who did not make the short-list. Do not let this put you off. Keep writing and keep submitting.

Good luck to the short-listed.
