Winner and Shortlist

After wading through more than 75 submissions, the three of us have finally settled, after much deliberation, on a winner. Winnowing the list proved much harder than we expected: the quality of the submissions was excellent. Our shortlists attest to the difficulty we had selecting a winner: they are almost completely different. So, in the interest of full disclosure, we've decided to publish our individual shortlists. We want to thank everyone for submitting, and we hope that you had as much fun writing your Revenge-Lits as we had reading them.

For its style, humour, playfulness, voice, and the tightness of its presentation, we've agreed the the best of the RevengeLit submissions was:

The Eternal Remainder: by Charles Conley

The Shortlists:

Terry Griggs:

The Case of Poe Ethic Justice: by Albert Howard Carter III

Blind Judge: by Nathaniel Moore

Murder, Deconstructed: by Barbara Eliasson

Special K to Kill by Karin Montin

Writing Lessons by Lydia Ondrusek

Dan Wells

Career Best: by Nathaniel Ward

How To: by Fred Fawnicoly

Charles Conley will be receiving a $100 cash prize, publication in issue 77 of CNQ, and a Biblioasis catalogue of 40 (or so) titles. Congratulations to Charles and all of the shortlisted entrants!
