And here is a picture of the anthology, Best of The Short Story, Volume 1, from the first 3 years of the competition, sitting on one of Kerry’s cushions. A free copy was given to every contributor and to everyone who had been involved in the competition from the beginning. Too many to mention here, but you know who you are. Thank you!
