A contest inspired by the serious need for more good sci-fi

Banner Created by AE Wilcox, Sponsored by eyestar-


Thanks for the ride and for all the short stories! Unfortunately, I find myself quite burned out lately - with writing, and also with reviewing. Unfortunately, I feel the need to close up shop this month. Whether you have contributed stories to the contest or simply watched and read - thank you for the support! But I feel like I have not been giving this my best lately, and what one does should be done with heart. I won't say goodbye because I am not leaving writing.com. But I will say to you all: fare well for now.
