All 12 stories will appear in an anthology from Parthian B00ks (cover above right)  later in the year when the overall winner of the award will be announced.
Matthew G. Rees said: 'This is an honour for me. I'm pleased (and touched) to be associated with an award that, among other things, commemorates a writer so closely connected with the craft of short fiction, who produced some truly notable writing, indeed 'classics' that have stood the test of time.'
