Huge congratulations to Mme Melissa Yi for winning this year’s Derringer for Best Short Short Story! “My Two-Legs” was published in 2022 in the September/October issue of Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine.
In her moving story, a loyal dog strives to rescue his wounded human, his “two-legs”, who has been the victim of a crime. Melissa based her animal hero on her family’s beloved late dog.
AND Melissa’s re-imagined fairy story, “White Story and Seven Dreams”, placed third for the Joy Kogawa Award for Fiction!
