This week, the third and final finalist for the 2015 Texas Observer Short Story Contest was posted on the Observer’s website. The story, “Hands Moving Through Hair” by Rebecca Wurtz, joins the two previous selections, K.C. Sinclair's "Palabras Muertas" and Carmen Petaccio's "Militancy."  The winning story will appear in the Observer’s annual October Books Issue. Stephen Graham Jones, guest judge for the 2015 contest, said he’s always on the lookout for stories with “a fast start and a real ending.”
