A Contest Inspired by the Old Pulp Fiction Covers of Weird Tales Magazine
WEIRD TALES CONTEST







You're probably not old enough to remember, but in the 1930's thru the 1950's pulp magazines were all the rage. Many of the great authors we hold dear today got their first paying jobs writing for pulps like Weird Tales, Astounding Tales, and True Detective, just to name a few. Speculative fiction writers like Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch, H.P.Lovecraft, and Robert E. Howard all began submitting their stories and honing their skills.

THIS contest is designed to take you back to those days. So now you TOO can write for the old pulp fiction magazines just like the 'master story-tellers' did back in the day.

This will be an on-going monthly contest. Every month I will post the 'cover art' from one of those great, old pulp magazines, and you will write a short story, of say, no more than a 1000 words, that best describes that cover. Some of them will already have titles which you can choose to use or just make up your own from the inspiring art work. Write whatever you want in whatever genre you like, as long as it pertains to the monthly cover image.

So let's get started, shall we?

The sooner you submit, the sooner you will get paid. Hey, it's how those starving young writers of old fed their families.

*AlienG* I will pay 25,000 Gift Points for the best submissions. The others will get a review and a rejection letter.

*AlienGr* Post in the forum with BITEM ONLY.

*Alien* Nothing above an 18+ rating.

*Poison* And NO posting of anything other than story submissions. If you have questions, email me.
