Hello to all fans of science-fiction, fantasy, horror, and anything in the general geek genre! Did everyone have a good summer? We hope you got your relaxing in, because here’s a general reminder: the deadline for submitting to have YOUR STORY see print in the star-studded 10 Year Anniversary edition of Sci-Fi from the Rock is December 31, 2015: only 80 days away!
Got a story to tell? We think everyone does! Especially the talented staff and attendees of Sci-Fi on the Rock! That’s why Engen Books produces the Sci-Fi From the Rock anthologies, highlighting short stories from our region, written by the staff a guests of everyone’s favorite Sci-Fi convention! This year is Sci-Fi on the Rock’s 10th Anniversary, and we’re going to ring it in in style with a new anthology celebrating the Con’s decade of history bringing science-fiction to our region…but Sci-Fi on the Rock isn’t just made possible by its staff and guests: it’s made possible by you! So between now and December 31st 2015, Engen Books will be accepting submissions for publication in the 10th Anniversary Sci-Fi From the Rock from anyone who attends the Convention!
The amount of talent and pedigree on tap for this volume is already impressive, including a short prose story by Jay Paulin taking place in his fuzzy and expansive Super Galactic Space Explorers Universe (with ornamental by series creator Ariel Marsh), a tale by multiple-award winning Newfoundland author Scott Bartlett, a non-fiction retrospective on Sci-Fi on the Rock from the award-winning author of A Daughter’s Gift Jacqui Tam, and introducing sure-to-be fan-favorite author Erin Vance, who is introducing a new story set in an exciting new fantasy multiverse!
There will also be stories by Matthew LeDrew, Ellen Curtis, Steve Lake, Melanie Collins, Darren Hann, and an amazing new cover by the talented Kyle Callahan of Kyle Callahan Photography, the people behind those amazing photo-realistic geek-culture artwork prints that have been showing up at the last few Sci-Fi on the Rock conventions!
Eligible entrants will be entered into a draw to win a free weekend pass to Sci-Fi on the Rock 10! And with guest like Robert Picardo, Eugene Simon, JM Frey and Kirby Morrow (plus more to come!) that’s a heck of a great prize!
Send all entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31st, 2015, with the following information: Your Name, the title of your story, the genre of your story, and the length (approximate is fine). Please note: if selected we will need some further information on the author, please provide a reliable e-mail address.
For this specific collection, we’re going for an equivalent of PG to PG-13. That’s mainly because this book, more than the previous three, will be linked to the convention itself in that it’s celebrating 10 years of the Sci-Fi on the Rock convention.
Get your entries in!! 🙂
