Keep it brief: 28th annual 55 Fiction



Editors note: This year we kept it simple, just like submitters kept it brief, and Sun staff members from different departments wrangled through the stacks of words that made up the last year’s worth of 55 Fiction entries. They corralled the chosen ones into a short pile meant for print in our 28th annual 55 Fiction issue. The judges were Sun Arts Editor Joe Payne, Proofreader Andrea Rooks, and Owner Cindy Rucker, as well as Executive Assistant Giselle Griffin from New Times, our sister paper to the north. And if you disagree with the stories we picked, don’t blame us—blame the staff members who’ve parted ways with us since last year.

I don't work for the government, and it didn't impact me at all.
I don't have a government job, but I still missed out on important services.
I'm glad it happened. Who needs airport security anyway?
