A double, Jim?

I have a couple of competitions for science fiction writers today.

The Jim Baen Award is for a short story of up to 8,000 words. The prize package includes a trophy, paid publication, books and free entry into the 2018 Space Development Conference.

The James White Award is for short stories up to 6,000 words. Only non prefessional authors may enter. The prize is publication and £200.

This whisky drink is not Jim Beam. Yes, I do realise that's probably my most terrible attempt at connecting a photo with a post to date, but be fair – I've not yet been to the future, so I don't have any pictures taken there.

You need a teleporter.
That first contest sounds interesting.

I used to be an avid reader of SciFi and Fantasy novels, but I wouldn't be able to write a story in the genre if my life depended on it!

Hey Patsy,

Being a totally unprofessional, um, non-professional writer, that second one intrigues me.

I'm working on getting you Jim Beamed into the future, Patsy.


Patsy said...

A teleporter would be very handy.

Patsy said...

I could write on. Whether it's any good or not is another matter entirely.

Patsy said...

Good luck with the competition if you enter, Gary.

Considering how much is gone from that bottle the label might start looking like a Jim Beam label if you could even see it.

I didn't drink it all - honest!
