A cracking shortlist…

My little slice of life “Security Guard” has been shortlisted.

FlashFiction contest judge Dan Holloway says: “This is so original and lyrical it would be hard not to shortlist it, which is a clever move by the author. But the insight into the rich, not to say alarming inner life of the guy we pass as we go about our lives without noticing he’s there lifts the content to a level with the style. Part Vernon God Little part Taxi Driver yet all its own.”
