Results of the Seven Deadly Sins Short Fiction Award 2012[/b]

On 6 August 2012, the judges announced the winning stories in the Seven Deadly Sins Short Fiction Award 2012.  South Australian, William Mildren, won the competition with his intriguing and clever story, The Seven Deadly Sins.  Graeme Simsion (Victoria) came second with his ultra-short but ultra-clever story, Eulogy for a Sinner.   Third place went to Queenslander Julie Davies who found new ways to link gluttony with the Russian Space Program.   The winning and highly commended entries are now available in a new anthology The Seven Deadly Sins.
