Big congrats to all the winners and shortlistees, and a huge thanks to the judges, the organising committee, and the dear readers! And thank you so much for choosing A Feast of Sorrows: Stories as winner of the Best Collection. Jack Dann and Alan Baxter are worthy stablemates (check out Concentration and Crowshine).
It’s fantastic to see so many friends on these lists and so much new talent coming up through the ranks.
Quite frankly everything on the shortlists should form the basis of your reading and gift-giving for the rest of the year. Go! Buy! Read!
