“Sitting up in the dark, he took a deep breath and scented a familiar, beguiling trace in the air…”

New Ghost Stories IV

It’s time to announce the Writer’s Award for our latest anthology, New Ghost Stories II.

The Writer’s Award is one of my favourite things about running The Fiction Desk. The Award is given for each anthology that we publish, and is judged by the contributors themselves: each contributor votes for what they think are the two best stories, and the writer of the winning story gets £100.

The votes for New Ghost Stories II are in, and the winner this time is…

… Tamsin Hopkins, for her short story ‘The Table’.

Congratulations, Tamsin! The virtual cheque is in the digital post.

You can read the winning story (well, all the stories) in New Ghost Stories II, out now in paperback and Kindle editions: see here for details.
