Congratulations to the 2016 On The Far Side Finalists

Every year, the Futuristic, Fantasy, and Paranormal chapter of the RWA runs two contests. The Prism contest is for works published in the previous year, and the On the Far Side contest is for unpublished authors.

The finalists of OTFS have been released and are listed below.

Personal aside #1: Several years ago, my Alien Contact for Idiots was a finalist in Futuristic category.

Personal aside #2: I was a contest judge who had the honor of reading one of the finalist entries. I loved it and feel it would be a worthy winner. From personal experience, then, let me say that the quality of these tales is very high. Congratulations to all!
