Johnny Mains Story Short-listed for British Fantasy Award
Fantasycon is being held next weekend (24th and 25th October) and one of the most exciting things for me is to see how one of the stories in Johnny Mains' upcoming collection, A Little Light Screaming will do as The Girl on the Suicide Bridge is one of the four short-listed nominees for Best Short Story for the British fantasy Awards.
This is a brilliant achievement and I'll be having my fingers crossed till the winners are announced.
Mind you, whether this story wins or not it is still a nominee and that in itself is important.
The full list is:
A Change of Heart, Gaie Sebold (Wicked Women)
The Girl on the Suicide Bridge, J.A. Mains (Beside the Seaside)
Ptichka, Laura Mauro (Horror Uncut: Tales of Social Insecurity and Economic Unease)
A Woman’s Place, Emma Newman (Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets)
BEST OF LUCK, JOHNNY!
