Baen SF short story competition
« on: January 26, 2019, 01:34:35 AM »
The deadline is coming up fast (Feb 1) it's an SF contest that's pretty specific.  The prohibition on "Stories that show technology or space travel as evil or bad" sort of disqualifies most of my stuff plus the whole baen mixing of "military" and "adventure" sort of rubs me the wrong way. Maybe this would be a good one for @tebakutis ?

Anyway here's the link:

Thanks for the head's up! I did the contest a couple of years ago - five or so? I think I got an honorable mention, or the equivalent. I have a very good track record of landing just outside the qualification zone. :P

If I have time, I might write something just to keep my writing muscles sharp while waiting to get the copyedits back on my last book.
