We love all the stories in our magazine, and choosing which ones to submit for prizes is like choosing between one’s children. But we only get to nominate six pieces for the Pushcart Prize, and this year’s nominees are:
- ‘Stalk’ by George McWhirter (Issue 9)
- ‘Taraxicum Officinale’ by Mary H Auerbach Rykov (Issue 9)
- ‘Uncanonical Murder’ by Carol Berg (Issue 10)
- ‘Vellum’ by Andrea Lewis (Issue 10)
- ‘How to Write a Successful Obituary for a Superhero’ by Matthew Hooton (Issue 11)
- ‘If You’d Like to Make a Call, Please Hang Up’ by Bob Thurber (Issue 12)
We have our fingers crossed and we wish these authors all the best of luck as we send their stories off.
To read these fine stories you can purchase all four digital versions of the 2016 issues for only $15 on the Something Novel Kickstarter (select the Digital Sampler). But hurry — only until 11pm today!
