  1. Anne Aylor must be quite a writer. 2nd place and winner of the 2014 HNS short story award. Any chance we can read her winning piece?

    • We published an anthology of the 12 longlisted stories from HNSLondon12, the authors were all contacted for their consent before we could announce the publication though.

    • Will the stories appear in an anthology soon? I’d love to see what constitutes award winning short fiction across the ocean!
