Competition comments from professional authors on C. Henchley’s work.
• Michelle Spring - 'The piece stays vividly in period and rings so true in tone … An amusing and confident piece of work'
• Iain Patterson (NAWG competition) - 'A thrilling naval story packed with menace and dread … As the terror and regret builds, the raw, animal emotion leaps from the page. … unique in voice, tone, setting and period.'
• Iain Patterson (Writers' Bureau competition) – 'You are a very original and entertaining writer. In fact, I keep mentioning The Last Voyage when I give talks as a classic illustration of what a judge looks for in a perfect competition story'
• Ian Watson - 'Well, the winner has to be 'Twinkle, Twinkle' because it's so incredibly powerful and vividly written…. Okay, it's vampire-horror rather than SF, but the best must prevail!'
