Alert! Toby Bennett has been crowned the winner of the 2012 SA HorrorFest Bloody Parchment short story competition for his story “The Root Cellar”. Judges Sarah Lotz, Joe Vaz, Carrie Clevenger, Kelly Ansara, Shaun Swingler and Cat Hellisen named Bennett the winner and also liked another one of his submissions, “Wants and Needs”, so much that they selected it as a finalist.
As his prize, Bennett wins a comprehensive round of edits for a novel-length work, so perhaps we can expect a book from the talented writer in a year or so. Meanwhile Louis Greenberg, eKhaya’s Commissioning Editor, says that a collection of the short stories will be published in June. eKhaya published Bloody Parchment: Hidden Things, Lost Things and Other Stories last year.
Wow, what a bunch of stories to have gone through. First off, a big, hearty congratulations to Toby Bennett. Not only is he the winner of the 2012 SA HorrorFest Bloody Parchment short story competition with his story The Root Cellar, but another of his submissions was selected as a finalist—Wants and Needs. He wins a comprehensive round of edits for a novel-length work.
