“History, Aristotle says, represents things only as they are, while fiction represents them as they might be and ought to be.”
— Albert J. Nock, Memoirs of a Superfluous Man
LFA/SFL Short Story Contest 2014

I must have been living under a rock for the past week and a half, because Students for Liberty published the special issue of their Ama-Gi magazine on May 9th, featuring the winners and runners-up from the short story contest we held earlier this year.

Once again, here are the 10 stories we selected out of 169 submissions. Head over to the Students for Liberty website or scroll down to read them in the digital magazine.

  • 2nd Place: “House of Refuge” by Michael DiBaggio
  • 3rd Place: “A Masterpiece of the Literature of Liberty” by Jack McDonald Burnett
