Au Contraire 3 Short Story Winner

The Au Contraire 3 Short Story Award 2016 presentations, sponsored by SpecFicNZ, were held at Au Contraire 3 over Queen’s Birthday weekend.

The winner of the Short Story Contest is titled: To the Centre of the Earth, by Canterbury writer Robinne Weiss.

robbineJudge Phil Mann stated: “I couldn’t put it down. This is science fiction at its best: imaginative, well informed, well constructed and with a lesson for the present. I was also pleased to see use made of those stranger than fiction creatures: the Tardigrades.”

As 1st prized winner, Robinne received NZ$250 and a selection of print books. To the Centre of the Earth was published in Au Contraire 3 program book for the reading pleasure of those who attended. However, we feel that is not enough. Thus, we are pleased to share the winning story with all our members.
