Our Halloween Flash contest has officially wrapped! We want to thank everyone who submitted their wonderful stories for us to consider. We had a great turn out and it was an absolute blast to read every single one of them.
And now for the results!
The winners are...
Costume Change by Alex Lubertozzi
Childish Things by Aeryn Rudel
First Taste by Gary Gould
Ghost Mall by Chris Hobson
Congratulations to all who placed!
The Honorable Mentions
These stories were close to entering the top four!
Plain Pat and the Toaster by Andrew Moore
Jawbreakers by Maura Yzmore
The winning stories will be published online throughout October, starting with Costume Change by Alex Lubertozzi on October 8. We will continue publishing these stories every Friday (Thursday for email subscribers).
We will also be publishing a digital collection that will feature the winning stories plus the honorable mentions (if they want to be included). This collection will be made available on Kindle and other platforms near the end of the month!
Thanks, again, to all of you who participated!
In lieu of a new story this week, we're republishing a Halloween Double Feature by contest guest judge and two-time fall story contest winner, Christopher Stanley.
