Hump Gold

Hello friends!

Imagine my surprise when Jason A. Smith invited me to be the head judge of the 2012 Wisconsin People & Ideas magazine fiction contest. We had so many great entries it was quite difficult to choose one winner. But here it is, “Eyes in the Back of her Head” by Jill Stuckenberg. Thanks for this honor, Jason, and for sending us your great story, Jill. Congratulations!http://www.wisconsinacademy.org/magazine/eyes-back-her-head.
