Is that a ship I spy on the horizon…?

I’ve been nominated for the Meridian Prize (again). There are 30 on the short list. My second time to enter and second time I’ve been shortlisted. Someone there likes my style – but enough to win? They’ll let us know next week. The last short list was 15 and I didn’t place in the top three. This story is a bit edgier, less traditional, blackly comic. I don’t know if that is a good or a bad thing, or neutral. Still, I don’t have too long to wait. They’ll let us know next week.

Perhaps I should put together a list of up coming competitions for ya’ll and would be delighted if you could update or chip in on any more out there.
