frightening_fiction_contestThe BookRix Frightening Fiction writing contest was difficult to judge, but our independent judges have selected their top three choices. As always, this BookRix contest was free-to-enter. BookRix community members voted for their favorite choices to determine the top 10 submissions and nominate a wildcard pick!

The following three frightening stories were chosen as the official winners and recipients for thrilling cash prizes for the Frightening Fiction writing contest:
