HNSOxford16 Short Story Award Longlist

Books imageThe HNSOxford16 Short Story judges are pleased to announce that after much soul-searching, and because they had some fabulous entries, they have decided upon a longlist of twelve for the HNSOxford16 Short Story Award. The entries selected for the longlist are as follows (in random order):

The Fat Lady Sings
The Sharing of a Husband
Fire on the Water
The Happy Island
The Hungry Sails
Ten Minutes
The Innkeeper’s Banquet
Too Late, Beloved
Behind the Curtain
The Half-marked Warrior
Ice Bear

Congratulations to all the authors!

…And if you are an author of one of the longlisted stories, since it’s important that anonymity is preserved until after the selection of the shortlist and overall winner, please do not jump up and down for joy on social media or otherwise blazon your success – keep it under your hat for now, and well done!
