Just learned that my story “The Magnificents” was selected as the prose winner for this year’s Cincinnati Review/Robert and Adele Schiff Awards. Wonderful to win, but I’m also just happy the story will have a good home. A great publication.
The blog post about it is here: http://www.cincinnatireview.com/blog/uncategorized/schiff-award-winners-2/
(Also glad the editors didn’t find the story too bleak. My wife and daughter never quite believed me when I said it was funny, especially the really horrible bits. “It’s goofy dystopian noir,” is what I wrote to myself before I started the story. As if that’s a thing.)
