The Friends of the Merril Short Story Contest is pleased to announce that Michael Kelly, known for his dark, often haunting fiction, as well as for his accomplished work as an editor/anthologist, has agreed to act as a final panel judge for the 2011-2012 contest year.
For those not familiar with Kelly’s work, he runs Undertow Books, through which he produces the literary horror journal Shadows & Tall Trees, and he’s been editor and anthologist for anthologies both through his own imprint and other publishers.
You can find a complete bio for Michael Kelly on our Judges page.
We’re still in the process of finalising confirmation of our other Judges, and hope to be able to announce them soon. In the meantime, you can keep checking back for more updates, or you can follow us through this blog or Twitter (@fomcontest) to receive news and updates when you want them, where you want them.
