Aquí os dejo las palabras de Allen:
I have really enjoyed having the privilege of judging the BFS Short Story Competition for the last couple of years. The winning stories from 2013 should be appearing in a future BFS Journal very soon. The competition is open to everyone apart from committee members of the BFS. As a BFS member, you get one free entry as part of your membership. Non-members pay, and second entries from BFS members cost, £5 or dollar equivalent per story. There’s just me judging – no filtering committee or anything like that. I will read every story thoroughly and often several times. Word limit is 5000 words and all the usual rules apply. Submission window opens on 1 March 2014 and closes on 30 June 2014. I will be reading the stories over the Summer and, although it’s a tight turn around, I hope to announce the winners at Fantasy Con in York in September.
