The #SJIBFS Longlist

Thank you to everyone who entered the British Fantasy Society Flash Fiction Competition! Entries came in steadily from the minute the comp was announced, right up until 23:51 on the closing date – some people like to push deadlines to their limits, don’t they! There was an excellent selection of horror, fantasy and sci-fi and although some followed tried and tested routes, there were some quite unusual stories in there too.

So, without further ado, I give you the longlist…

A Little Light Relief Zoe Gilbert
Death’s Door Keith B Walters
Detachment Shirley Golden
Escape LE Jamez
Fire-Breathing Hazard Mikey Jackson
Gone David Hartley
Hero Dayv Metcalfe
Lavender Gunjan
No Photos, Please Ailsa Abraham
Prey Jo Bober
Rabbit Al Kratz
Saving the Planet Juliet Boyd
Single Malt Oliver Barton
The Changelings Karl A Russell
The Has-Been Kristina England
The Jar over the Edge Kevlin Henney
The Kracken Mark Ethridge
The Montclair Redoubt Jack Hughes
The West Wind’s Daughter Melissa Osburn
World on Fire Miranda Kate

Well done to everyone who got this far – competition was tough and it was difficult to pick only 20 of you. Commiserations to those who didn’t make the list, but please don’t be disheartened – as I’ve said before, judging is a very subjective process, and the standard of entries was very high.

The Shortlist of 10 will be announced on Tuesday 18th June, winners on National Flash Fiction Day – 22nd June.
