On the subject of prize winning short stories, while I read the Hugo and Nebula Award anthologies, I generally don’t look for an award as criteria when I’m scoping out fiction to read. But some of the stories I’ve liked have won an award or two: I mentioned Manly Wade Wellman’s “A Star For A Warrior” earlier in these blogs, and I read Daniel Keyes’ “Flowers for Algernon” in Jnr. High (in the English textbook!) I’ve entered a couple of contests and was an honorary mention in one, for a story that didn’t get published!
That last part didn’t keep me from framing the certificate and hanging it on my wall!
