I just received a letter (and a cheque) in the mail stating that Roll of Honour had won in the Lest We Forget category of the Canadian Stories Competition (due to be published in that magazine on August 1st). It hasn't sunk in yet. There's been a lot to absorb over the last couple of days.
I had mentioned earlier that Roll of Honour had made it to the semi-finals in last year's Galbraith Award. This is a much shorter version, as the contest restrictions forced me to trim off over a thousand words.*
Oh, I forgot to add that it will appear on this blog August 2nd.
*I've since checked, and it was only 500 words that I had to take off. I guess it just felt like a thousand.
