“INCIDENTALS” Novella Named To Faulkner-Wisdom Short List

HOUSTON, TX (September 2018) – Supernatural thriller “Incidentals” screenwriter and Sam Houston Southwest Film Investment Fund board advisor Matthew Minson has been honored by the prestigious, nationally recognized William Faulkner – William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition ( for his novella, “Incidentals” upon which the screenplay is based.

Some reviewer comments for “Incidentals”:

“... this clever story is, in a way, misleading. It presents itself as a supernatural thriller, when in truth it is really something more, a very insightful social indictment of intolerance and human failing. Very sly writing indeed.”

“... funny, witty, creepy and thoughtful. I may never pay for a motel room with a credit card again.”

Minson was additionally honored as a finalist in the novel category for his book “Sun City” and as a finalist for NIP for “Perspectives.”

“We are very happy for Matt and celebrate this well-deserved recognition,” said Steven Jon Whritner, Sam Houston’s EVP, Production and Development. “We look forward to bringing “Incidentals”, the movie, to the big screen."

Minson is also the author and illustrator of the award-winning social advocacy series “Prepare to Defend Yourself” and is currently working on his next book for Texas A&M University Press.
