Winning piece: "Aberration" by Cyn Bermudez "From the opening line of this story, the reader is captured by the protagonist's desire to escape the ordered life of El Mismo. A missing husband, mirrors and wings, a wise widow, and a mastery in the ways of showing people what they want to see, this story blends the real and the fantastic and creates a tone of controlled suspense" — Anita Dellaria, "Escape" judge, co-founder and editor of The Bird's Thumb.
