WITNESS LITERARY AWARDS.

Fiction selected by Lesley Nneka Arimah

First Place "The Nine-Tailed Fox Explains" by Jane Pek

"There are many things that fiction can accomplish, among them the capacity to rewrite history or turn convention on its head. In the right hands, speculative fiction becomes a multi-functional tool, capable of illuminating dark corners, of complicating established narratives with invention. "The Nine-Tailed Fox Explains" both deploys and defies trope, building a new narrative while destroying an old one. With writing as fine-tuned as the story's aims, Pek's skill and imagination work in tandem to create a damn fine story."

--Lesley Nneka Arimah

Runner-up

"The Kristian Vang Fan Club" by John Tait
