In advance of the 25th anniversary of the Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest, I went digging through the back issues to see what was published for its debut. In the March 27, 1992 issue, there it was: the winning stories, the list of judges, and, best of all, the contest's origin story spun by Chronicle Editor Louis Black.
