“I’ve loved judging the RA & Pin Drop Short Story Award. The talent was plentiful, fresh and exciting and Claire Fuller is a very deserving winner.”
– Simon Oldfield, Pin Drop founder
“Claire Fuller’s brilliant story is such a worthy winner: both darkly comic and deeply moving, with a modern gothic undertone that reminded me of Roald Dahl’s Tales of the Unexpected. It’s going to be a wonderful addition to the Pin Drop archive.”
– Elizabeth Day, Pin Drop founder
