Blurb still says shortlist.

This is link to story. I don't know if it will last forever.

This might be one to add. http://caineprize.com/previous-winners/


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 7173 comments Short stories aren't allowed on GR unless they have been published separately, but I found an audio edition and added a librarian note to that effect so that this one will stay.

Added the 2017 award.

I'll have to get back to the previous winners another time.

I thought it said they are allowed if they're published online.

"* short stories published online (the format should be "ebook") "

They still must be published separately, not as part of a larger work.

The link to the story is in my earlier post. It is published online along with the other entrants. You have to click the link at the bottom to read it.

Patty, if you read my post, it clearly says this story will stay. I'm not sure what your complaint is.

Sorry. - I wasn’t complaining. I just wondered why it was necessary to find an audio version in order to allow the story to stay on Goodreads. I thought the Caine Prize publication online was sufficient. I don’t want to mess up the system!

Maybe I'm wrong, but my understanding that a pdf isn't acceptable.

A pdf is fine, if it is produced and hosted by someone with the rights to do so. Usually that means the author or publisher.
