The 2015 Tales of the Heart anthology, a collection of 13 Canadian short stories, marks the end of the second genre cycle for the Canadian Tales writing contest. Consistency, first place: the antics of two senior fishermen play out against a vividly-drawn BC background, with a touch of pathos and a dollop of good-natured humour. That Moment, second place: what starts as a medical story with mysterious overtones evolves into every parent's nightmare. Azreal's Whispers, third place: a poignant look at one woman's goodbye to the trappings of a life well-lived. Plus 10 honourable mentions.
