Congratulations to the four prizewinners in the Mensa Magazine short story competition!
The competition, run as part of the society's 75th anniversary celebrations, attracted some high quality entries. The overall winner was Sue Davnall, with her story The Return, about a man who has reconnects with a former life.
The judges' verdict on Sue's story was "A beguiling, beautifully written tale of lost and found".
Runner up was 14-year-old Iona Mandal, with her story Belonging, about cultural recognition, and there were two highly commended stories: French Missile by Louise Eileen Woof and The Eleventh Hour by J R Armstrong-Gregson.
