Short Story Anthologies – 2011

Thank you to everyone who sent a story in for the Christmas Horror anthology and the comedy fiction anthology.

Ho Ho Horror: Christmas Horror Fiction will be released by Christmas and the line up of stories and authors is listed below.

The comedy fiction anthology will not go ahead, due to an insufficient number of suitable stories submitted.

Congratulations to the authors of the following stories:

Ho Ho Ho, by Gordon Reece (UK, formerly north east Victoria)
– a special thanks to Gordon Reece, whose story was the inspiration for the anthology

Let it Snow, by Sam Stephens (Central Coast, near Sydney)

Unwanted Gifts, by Belinda Dorio (Mornington Peninsula,
near Melbourne)

Naughty or Nice, by Cameron Trost  (Brisbane)

Satan Clause, by Keith Mushonga (near Harare, Zimbabwe)

X-mas Secrets, by Steven Gepp (Adelaide)

Rainmaker, by Kathryn Hore (Dandenong Ranges, near Melbourne)

Glittering Were the Leaves, by Tony Dews (Melbourne)

Artwork for Ho Ho Horror will be done by Andrew J McKiernan (Central Coast, near Sydney), who is no stranger to artwork for Christmas horror fiction. He is also currently Art Director at Aurealis Magazine and a short story writer.

    As one who submitted a comedy story, could I (an probably others like me) be informed whether ours were among those that were suitable or not? And if not, what the criteria were.

      Hi Mike,

      The standard competition policy of ‘judging is final and no correspondence will be entered into’ applies. It would just be too time consuming to get in the habit of commenting on individual stories and why they were or were not selected.

      • Mike Murphy says:

        That would be fine in normal circumstances. A rejection is a rejection. But surely this is different. The story may not have been rejected and may have been used if enough other suitable stories were submitted. It would seem reasonable to say “sorry, your story would have been accepted”.
