Foreword Indies I'm in it to win it

The Porcupine’s Quill is pleased to have two finalists in the running year. Daniel Bryant’s collection of darkly comic short stories, Rerouted, is a finalist in the Adult Fiction – Humour category, while Leon Rooke’s touching and zany novel The House on Major Street is a finalist in the Adult Fiction – Fantasy category.
