I’m happy to announce the results of the 2013 Postcard Fiction Contest, images of the winning entries above. My grateful thanks to everyone who sent in a postcard. I’ll just copy the stories here. Second runner up with “The Right Time” on a WTC postcard is John Williams-Searle:

The Right Time

When the elevator stopped between floors, the stockbroker looked up, annoyed and then startled.

“What are you doing here? You’re dead.”

A man in chef whites shrugged.

“Guilty as charged. It was mid-September and I was late for work. I hated that place. Crushing debt. My wife insisted we look at vacation homes. My kids were brats. I just stepped out.”

I knew it! How many people did that? My wife and I argue about it. She says I’m an idiot.”

“Wives do that. The life insurance helped mine forget. She recovered in the Hamptons and I make omlets.”
