Robert Bonnett – winner of 1001 Arabian Nights writing competition


Congratulations to Robert Bonnett of North Yorkshire. Robert is the winner of the 1001-word short story writing competition staged at the end of 2008 on AbeBooks.co.uk. The prize was a wonderful limited edition three-volume box-set of The Arabian Nights from Penguin and we asked for short stories that were exactly 1001 words in length.

We received many great stories, most fictional – where was the non-fiction? You can read Robert’s Siberian-themed story here as well as some of the other great stories we loved reading. I really loved the petrol station story too – that one was close on Robert’s heels.

Robert is clearly excited and has blogged at his victory. Check out his blog, it’s an excellent read and you get to see his garden in the snow too.
