Bennett Sims has won the Bard Fiction Prize for 2014 (which includes a $30,000 cash award) for his novel A Questionable Shape. The judges describe Sims’ genre-bending debut as a “story about the vagaries of human perception which is also a wild romp of zombies biting through a curiously lyrical apocalypse.”
