WordTheatre, the short story experts, casts the perfect actors to bring great contemporary writing to life. The Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award is the richest prize for a story under 6,000 words. In the lead up to the announcement of each year's winner, the six shortlisted stories are presented to the public with many of the writers present. Recorded live in London and Oxford, England, these nine shortlisted stories inhabit distinct worlds where cultures and personalities collide.
Word of Honor introduces us to Southern California surfers Harlowe Pylott and Matt Riverstone, whose act of heroism leads them on the adventure of a lifetime: joined by their friend "Wiz," socialite Leucadia Mars, and movie star/reluctant traveler Simon Bolt, the retrieval of Millawanda, an ancient spaceship once belonging to a race of peacekeepers called "Gamadin"…not to mention the most dangerous weapon in the known galaxy. Unfortunately they're not alone in their quest: a destructive alien race has come seeking Millawanda.
