After much deliberation, Engen Books is proud to announce the winner of the January 2022 Kit Sora Flash Fiction Photography Contest: Ali House with the story, The Path!

Ali House is an award-winning, bestselling author, originally from Newfoundland. She is a graduate of the Fine Arts program at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College (MUN), and currently resides in Halifax where she works in arts administration and spends more time than a person should in and around theaters. She is a master storyteller whose work has helped define the landscapes of science-fiction, fantasy, and horror writing in Atlantic Canada.

We had two judges for this contest:

Kit Sora Photography. Kit Sora is an artist and photographer from St. Johns, Newfoundland. Her photography draws inspiration from fantasy, dystopia, and thrillers to create evocative imagery that startles, inspires, and excites. Kit signed with Engen Books in 2018 as head photographer, producing the thrilling image for Chillers from the Rock and re-imagining the covers to the entire Black Womb series into the Coral Beach Casefiles series. Drew Power is a currently seated member of the Sci-Fi on the Rock committee. He was recently featured as the model on the cover of the bestselling collection Chillers from the Rock.

David Lynch was born in St. John’s Newfoundland but grew up in Bellevue Beach. He is currently working on a high fantasy series titled The Egimian Chronicles, the first book of which releases in 2022 from Engen Books. In October 2020, Lynch won the third annual WANL “Nightmare on Water Street” contest. He was featured in Mythology from the Rock with his story, ‘Influence.’

Runners up include Breathe by Jillian Bishop, and The Glade by James E. Guin.

The Flash Fiction Photography Contest is sponsored in part by FictionFirst Used Books, which specializes in previously enjoyed Sci-fi & Fantasy Novels, Roleplaying Manuals and Graphic Novels. It is run out of the Annapolis Valley and open by appointment only. Their inventory is currently over 5000 titled strong and they ship within Canada, USA and Europe.
