The competition for a prize in Big Other‘s second contest was fierce. Actually, only six people entered and one was disqualified. Nevertheless, the writing was inventive and funny. So here are the winners:
Gabe Durham wins Sweet Tomb, by Trinie Dalton
B L Pawelek wins A Mere Pittance, by Sumanth Prabhaker
Gabriel Orgrease wins The Third Elevator, by Aimee Bender
Peter Anderson wins Bobcat, by Rebecca Lee
All winners should send their snail mail address to me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you all enjoy the books.
And everybody please support the progressive-minded work that Madras Press is doing.
Also, our first contest is still open. Come on, write Big Other‘s slogan and win some cool prizes!
