Author(s): Various (intro Owen Marshall)
For over two decades, the judges of the Sunday Star-Times Short Story Competition have had the daunting task of selecting, from up to eighteen-hundred entries, one winning story. This prestigious competition has lauded a range of New Zealand writers as diverse as the stories they've penned, honouring many of our best-known authors and launching talented new voices. The competition's twenty-two winning stories have now been brought together to form this powerful collection. Varied, startling and above all entertaining, each story is clearly a winner in its own right, making Sunday 22 a superb collection for every lover of fiction. Includes stories from: Barbara Anderson, Michael Ardagh, Norman Bilbrough, Jill Brame, Richard Brooke, David Clarkson, Marie Duncan, Justin Eade, Susan Hancock, Vic Keppel, Joy MacKenzie, Michael Morrissey, Anne Mulcock, Carl Nixon, Linda Olsson, Sarah Quigley, Bernard Steeds, Terry Thomas, and Judith White. First published June 2006.
