The holidays are nearly over, and we’re wrapping up the second year of Fiction Vortex. We hope both have been good for you. There are a couple things left to do before we start popping those little weird fake champagne popper thingies and kick off the new year. For instance, we need to announce the last Editor’s Choice winner of 2014.
We are exceptionally proud of the slate of stories this month. It was a fantastic way to end the year, and picking the best this month was harder than getting a troll to smile. We finally reached a consensus, and the winner is…
The Eyes Behind the Mask, by R.Y. Brockway
This story one because of the interesting structure, and the tired feeling it gave to the idea of superheroes. This isn’t about their grand feats of strength or daring. It’s about the baggage they carry from all their time spent together, and that’s what was so compelling about it.
We thank all our authors, and our loyal readers. Next month, we’ll do a retrospective of our favorite stories from 2014. So stay tuned. In the meantime, don’t forget to vote in the Reader’s Choice Poll for December.
