I just might believe that you folks may have received a lot of 55 Fiction letters.
And believe me, some of them are real corny!
But my complaint here is even though you may have picked about 17 that your judges call good, I am disappointed that a half dozen or more came from the same person.
I have been reading your news rags for a lot of years now, and it seems that every year you always pick the same names as winners, from year to year.
I would like to see this in print and also get some more input from some of your other readers about the judging.
Ed. note: Alyssa Rose had four stories in this year’s edition, the most of any writer for 2014. Our judges assign each story a numerical score, after which all of the scores are tallied and the pieces with the most points are printed.
