Until now, I’ve never played the awards game but I wanted to get in this year and decided to send four to Pushcart.
The stories are as follows:
Matthew C. Funk’s SHOOTER
Chris Benton’s PRECIPICE and RELAPSE
Michael J. Solender’s SEVENTY-TWO HOURS OR LESS
Considering you only get six nominations, and because I believe every story that makes it onto A Twist Of Noir a masterpiece, it was extremely difficult in making these choices. I know it’s cliché but it's almost like having to choose between your kids. And when there's only six choices you can make at Pushcart...
Congratulations to Matt, Chris and Michael and, next year, I’ll delve a little deeper into the awards thing and spread the wealth around a little more, get more people seen by more people.
