2018 Story of the Year Winner

The winner of the 2018 Story of the Year, along with the $50 prize and enshrinement in the Hall of Fame, is:

The Summer of Sweet Mary (circa 1972) by Bob Thurber

For the first time, 50WS has a two-time story of the year winner. It’s not surprising that Bob Thurber was the one to do it. His run of work this year was truly exceptional, earning repeated honours despite the increasing volume and quality of submissions we’ve been receiving month after month.

Honourable mentions to The Art of Disappearing by Patrick Mc Loughlin and Dependency by Carrie Backer, two more excellent stories that made it very difficult to choose the winner.
