For those of you who write fantasy/sci-fi short stories and are unaware, Sword & Laser is holding a short story anthology competition — and submission ends tomorrow! The word count is 1500 – 7500, there’s no entry fee, and the prize is $200 (plus all the exposure you get from publishing a short story). So if you’ve got a fantasy/sci-fi short sitting around on a hard drive somewhere, dust it off, tidy it up, and send it in!
My entry is whimsically entitled The Numismatist. Numismatist, of course, means “coin collector”. (I say “of course” because of course I had no idea what it meant until I Googled it.) I won’t say much more than that about the story, except to hint that the coin collector after which the story is named is definitely not your average Joe … in fact, he may be of a different species entirely! Dum dum dummmmmmmmmmmmm.
Anyway, here’s the link to the contest again. Enter … if you dare!
