Writing.ie and Bord Gais released their shortlist for the best short story in the annual Bord Gais Book Awards 2013. I have read three of them. Bait by Colin Barrett, A different country by Danielle Mc Laughlin and How I beat the devil by Paul Murray. Though, i love Colin’s story, my vote goes to Danielle’s story. I really got into it, loved her sense of place and the fear she portrayed in the setting and animals througout. If you get the chance, cast your vote here!
