Rik Hoskin’s Bystander 27 – Our Competition Winners!

Bystander 27 - Cover

Thanks to all of you who entered our Bystander 27 competition, courtesy of Angry Robot. Our winners were Andy Angel from Sheffield, Dan Shanahan from Charleville, and Lucy Sheppard, from Newmarket.

Written by Rik Hoskin, in Bystander 27, for ex-Navy SEAL Jon Hayes, the super-powered ‘costumes’ are just part of ordinary life in New York City, until the day his pregnant wife Melanie is senselessly killed in a clash between Captain Light and The Jade Shade.

But as Hayes struggles to come to terms with his loss, and questions for the first time who the costumes are and where they come from, the once sharp lines of his reality begin to blur…

If Hayes wants to uncover the shocking truth about the figures behind the costumes, and get justice for his fallen family, he’ll have to step out of the background, and stop being a bystander.
