Better than good is what we’ve seen in this year’s Peter Hinchcliffe Short Fiction Award which goes to an emerging writer—one defined as someone who has not had a novel or collection published. Nicole Leona Smith came out the winner this year with her story set in 1970s New Brunswick, dropping us into a high-spirited evening with a family about to do the unthinkable, go to the fair on a weeknight.
