2006 Short Fiction Winners!

(trumpets blowing, cymbals clashing)... And here are the winners for the Fire Escape's 2006 Short Fiction Contest. As Mike Chen, who won second prize, so aptly puts it, the best thing about life between cultures is "being able to identify with two different worlds. Therefore, my mind is more open to other cultures because I am a person of two." Enjoy, and please pass the word on about the 2007 Contests.
