Helsinki-based Joel Willans who was shortlisted for the 2008 Bristol Short Story Prize with his mesmerising story ‘Floating on By’ has a story due for publication in the near future. He will feature in Flatmancrooked’s anthology due to be published in January 2010. The anthology has the wonderful title Not About Vampires: An Anthology of New Fiction Concerning Everything Else and is edited by Deena Drewis.
Another of Joel’s stories has recently been included in Leaf Books’ Message in the Bottle and Other Stories, a collection of the winning entries from Leaf’s 2009 short story competition.
Congratulations to Joel!
