Editorial - Issue 08:10

Issue 11:01We received a rich mixture of entries to the 2008 Perilous Adventures short story competition. And so many: the ladies at the local post office were very impressed with our overflowing postbox! We feel so lucky to have been able to read your work, which ranged from the humourous to the tragic, the silly to the sublime. From such a diverse and talented field of writers it was a challenge to choose our winners, but finally we narrowed it down to a shortlist, and chose a winner.

Shortlisted Entries
‘Ten Letters, Unsent’ by Cameron Brockmann
‘The Mirror’s Kiss’ by Caroline Fletcher
‘Saturday Mornings’ by Robert Cocker
‘Dogs’ by G Fitzgerald

And the winner is ...
‘Ten Letters, Unsent’ by Cameron Brockmann

In this issue, you can read the winning stories. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we did.

warm regards
