The winner is "The Tomato Thief" by Ursula Vernon, published in Apex Magazine (January 2016) edited by Jason Sizemore.
The other finalists for the 2016 WSFA Small Press Award for Short Fiction were:
“Foxfire, Foxfire” by Yoon Ha Lee, published in Beneath Ceaseless Skies (March 2016) and edited by Scott H. AndrewsThe award honors the efforts of small press publishers in providing a critical venue for short fiction in the area of speculative fiction. The award showcases the best original short fiction published by small presses in the previous year (2016). An unusual feature of the selection process is that all voting is done with the identity of the author (and publisher) hidden so that the final choice is based solely on the quality of the story.
The winner was chosen by the members of the Washington Science Fiction Association (www.wsfa.org) and was presented at their annual convention, Capclave (www.capclave.org), held this year on October 6-8, 2017 in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
