From our record number of entries this year, we have whittled the stories down to a longest of 100. No story titles here, since our judges are still working on the shortlist, but here are the author names - and yes, if your name is here twice, you have two stories on the longlist. If it’s not here at all, then better luck another time - keep trying!
