Neon’s 2017 Best Small Fictions Nominations

Neon’s 2017 Best Small Fictions Nominations

Each year Braddock Avenue Books collects together the best “small fictions” published in the previous year for their aptly-named anthology The Best Small Fictions. Several stories which first appeared in Neon have been reprinted there, including Lydia Armstrong’s “The November We Are Fifteen” and Claire Joanne Huxham’s “Correspondence“.

As ever, we’ve put forward a handful of our best pieces of prose comprising less than one thousand words for consideration. Here are our nominees for the 2018 edition of The Best Small Fictions

“By An English Sea” by Thomas Evans

“Signals Of Fear And Uncertainty” by Eric Shattuck

“I Am Speaking” by M Durand

“Daytime Television”by Jake Ristic-Petrovic

Best of luck to all of them. If you want to find out more about The Best Small Fictions, you can read all about it (including the impressive roster of judges for this year) on the Braddock Avenue Books website – where you can also order previous editions of the anthology.
