55 Fiction 2019



Brevity is the soul of our annual 55 Fiction short-story contest, and we invite readers from far and wide to pick up their pens to submit their tiny tableaus. Our judges this year—including Arts Editor Caleb Wiseblood and Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and Staff Writer Karen Garcia from our sister paper, New Times—read through the best of the submitted stories to name the winners. At times, we channeled Hunter S. Thompsbird, cynicism and cigarette in hand (metaphorically, of course), to find the juiciest juxtapositions, the most diminutive denouements, and the shiniest similes. Enjoy!

Weekly Poll
What'd you make of the county's decision to close beaches for the Fourth of July weekend?

It was sensible since counties to the south closed their beaches.
I was OK with it. I set off fireworks at home instead.
It was ridiculous. The restrictions have to stop.
It didn't matter. I went to SLO County.
