Congratulations to Terry! His story Big Dave’s In Love, won the Arc short fiction competition. The Arc quarterly magazine/ezine is “a new digital quarterly from the makers of New Scientist, exploring the future through the world of science fiction and intriguing, thought-provoking ideas”.
At the Arc blog, Arcfinity, they say:
“Big Dave’s In Love is a profound and very funny homage to Carlo Collodi’s wooden child Pinocchio, set in a hyper-animated, hyper-aware world.
It is a story about how intelligence emerges out of emotion. It is about pleasure, and trust. It is also, by some margin, one of more perfectly structured stories we’ve read this year.”
