Round 4 open for the new year! Big prizes inside!




Cover art by: Keaton


*Star* Round Four Open January 1st 2013, Deadline January 31st! *Star*




*Globe2* *Globe* *Globe2*

For this contest I invite you to return to an optimistic version of science fiction. One where the future is appealing and adventurous; where the new is seen as thrilling and desirable; and where our heroes push us forward to better ourselves and all of humanity.

Give me a story that will fill me with anticipation for tomorrow!
*Globe2* *Globe* *Globe2*
