    1. The winning story is a gem Set in Pringle Bay, it has than one narrative layered into its cleanly written pages and concerns a man, his driver s licence, a cop, a baboon and several whatifs In second place is Heatwave by Beth Hunt, in which a woman, surrounded by love and good fortune, examines her conscience when a lover dies Of the 21 stories I considered 15 to be very good and the rest to be almost as good Names that are already known to readers include Liesl Jobson, with her intense, percep [...]


    2. I find it s enjoyable to read some South African short stories now and then Like with the last African Pens book, Coetzee shortlisted the best and selected the winners It was interesting reading his synopsis of the submitted works he concludes disappointingly that although the works were good, there was no sign of a new fresh talent worthy of honourable mention.
