ORIGINAL FICTION CONTEST REMINDER

Hey, everyone. Just a reminder about our Original Fiction contest: write an original story, submit it to us at three@republibot.com and we'll run it on the site. At the end of the contest, our readers vote on which one we like best, and that person wins. Thus far we have two entries from Mamafisi, and a third - from Neorandomizer - was to run today, but owing to my wonky schedule, I didn't have a chance to get it edited in time. It'll run in this slot next week.

BLUE COLLAR ORIGINAL FICTION CONTEST: And the winner is...

Back in October, I think it was, we announced our first-ever first annual Original Fiction contest. The task was to write an original story that involved some blue-collar aspect of science fiction, something mundane, but vital, something that is generally unsung, but interesting.

The difficulties of beekeeping on an alien world, a garbage worker's strike in space, the paperwork aspects of being a time-traveling cop, whatever.

The plan was to run the stories on here, one a week, starting today, and let you, the readers, vote for your favorite.

ORIGINAL FICTION CONTEST: Write A Blue Collar Science Fiction Story!

Back in December of 2009, Neorandomizer made a very good suggestion that I promptly forgot about until today: why not have a contest to see who could write the best science fiction short story set in a blue-collar world?

Ok, so here's the deal: We've just posted the first of what I'm sure will be several reviews of Avatar, but we've decided to start a contest: All you have to do is write a six-word review for the movie and post it in the comments below. We'll pick the best one after.....eh....let's say a week, and the winner will get a whole bunch of points which can be redeemed for prizes once we have the store up and running and have some actual prizes to give you. (We're working on that.)

So fire away!
