There were ten absolutely brilliant short stories entered into the competition to win a signed first edition hardback copy of the third Joe Hunter thriller - Slash and Burn - all of which you can still read over at
All ten were superb and I'm glad that I put the voting out to the readers instead of having to choose one out of the bunch. Nevertheless, there could be only one.
And the Winner is A LONG TIME COMING by Paul Grzegorzek.
Congratulations to Paul on a fast moving, thriller story that everyone agrees is absolutely brilliant.
There are of course no losers all the other entries are also top notch and I raise my glass to you all for some damn fine writing. I salute you all.
In no particular order:
GALLANCE by Col Bury
FIRESTORM by Alan Peden
TROUBLE ON A BUS by John Walker
PROMISES, PROMISES by Sue Harding
UNDERBELLY by Anna Harris
IN THE KINGDOM OF THE FUCKED UP, THE GUN-TOTING MAN IS KING by Lee Hughes
DARK HEART by AJ Humpage
DIAMONDS AND PEARLS by Alan Griffiths
