A note from Emma Wood
On November 15, we finally released Foxtale by Sarah Hunt—the fiction winner of our 2021 book contest. It’s a fantastic novel that truly has it all: a pet dog with a robotic leg, an unlikely (and totally likable) heroine, a mechanical flying dragon, and a journey to another planet—not to mention intrigue, suspense, and fascinating characters. I hope you will buy your own copy, along with some extras as holiday gifts for any readers in your life who love a well-plotted science fiction story!
The book contest is such a valuable outlet for young writers; I get notes every year detailing how much simply working toward the contest has meant to them. Publishing these books is truly a labor of love for us, as it is for all small presses—though we think they should sell thousands, none has yet and every year we must reconsider whether it will be possible for us to hold another book contest. Please help us keep it going by either making a donation to Stone Soup this holiday season—or a viral TikTok about one of our titles :)
