Friends of the Merril Contest

Möbius strip

The winners of the innagural Friends of the Merril Short Story Contest were announced today. I offer my sincere congratulations to Sarah Enals, Jason Ridler, and Dr. Philip Edward Kaldon and look forward to reading their stories as soon as they're available.

My story, The Mobius Garden managed to get to the short list, where it is good company with works by Kari Maaren and Suzanne Church.

Thanks as well go to contest runner Michael Matheson for humanizing what could have been a very impersonal process. Lots of judges, writers and readers gave their time and talents to support the finest SF library in Canada and hopefully this will be the first of many such contests for a worthy cause.
