The winning stories in our Dead of Winter 2016 contest are:
1st: “The Hands of Fate” by Ellis Sinclair
2nd: “The Dead of Winter” by Catherine J. Link
3rd: “Helping Hands Retreat” by Red Lagoe
These stories will be published in our March 2017 issue.
We are also awarding an honorable mention to “The Philosophy of Pre-Determinism” by Michael Grantham. Although the story will not be published, we appreciated the story’s clever callbacks to Manos: The Hands of Fate and its telling of the story of two minor characters, both cleverly named.
We enjoyed reading every entry and thank the entrants for sharing their creativity with us.
Keep writing! The Master would approve!
