You can also submit entries to contest@escapeartists.net.  I'll get them either way.

I prefer ridiculed, but use what you want.

I gotta say, you're one of he best sports we've had as a newbie in quite a while.  You can always PM the mods with questions you might have.

Submissions have been forwarded to our 3 judges.  They will get back to me and I will get a poll up.

I have received the choices from one of the judges.  The other two ::cough::bdoomed::cough::izzardfan::cough:: have not gotten back to me.

I think we're going to have to go with 2 rounds of voting.

Round 1, everybody gets 3 votes.  Top 5 choices advance to round 2 where everybody only gets one vote.

Polls will go up when I get the top 10 from the other judges.  There could be up to 30 for each category. 

There may not be a prize for Escape Artists in general, as we did not get many submissions for that.  We'll see.  The poll for that category will be 1 vote only, and one of the options will be "none of the above".

Feel free to pester any judges that have been dragging their feet...

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Polls are going up.  Assume any grammatical errors are mine.  I did not select any entries, the 3 judges did.  All I did was forward every submission that was received prior to deadline.

Vote for up to 3 choices in round 1.  Top selections will move to round 2 where forumites can vote for 1 entry.  Unless there is a tie, round 2 will determine the winner.

In the Escape Artists poll, you can vote for only 1 and the top selection will be the winner.  None of the above is an option.

There were many more submissions.  The polls are merely the combined top 10 lists of our 3 judges.

I am removing myself from the Podcastle contest.  I followed the rules that I set forth.  Again, Rachel ends a discussion because she feels it is over.  Sorry, NOBODY else on this forum could get away with that.  I did not even receive a courtesy message explaining what happened.  I will have nothing to do with Podcastle. 

If that means that the rest of EA does not want my assistance, I will forward the names of the people that submitted the entries that have been selected so far.

I'm shutting up now before I cross a line.

[mod edit: sorry man, no, I can't allow this.  No malice intended behind this edit, just can't, feel free to PM me Smiley]

As was pointed out to me, there were 44 total submissions for Podcastle and 10 negative.

I was kind of annoyed that the aforementioned choice was put into final voting, I didn't want it there.

I didn't either, and left out of my top 10 list all of the ones listed above.

I mentioned to the judges that if there was an entry they felt should not be publicized to let me know.

Here is the entire list of submissions, I am not revealing authors, and they should not reveal themselves until after the contest is over:


PSEUDOPOD! Putting the 'pod' in podcast.
PSEUDOPOD. Quite possibly the last thing you'll ever hear.


EscapePod - Because Reality is a Crutch for Those Who Can't Cope With Science Fiction
EscapePod - Next Century's Reality, Now in Audio Form
PodCastle - Open the Door Gently, Or She Will Kick You on the Way Out
PodCastle - Give Up Your Ears and Fly
PodCastle - Knock on the Sky and Listen to the Sounds
PodCastle - We Love Food Fights. Just Don't Let the Food Win

PseudoPod - Stay Inside, Lock Your Doors, Bar the Windows, Arm Yourself, Listen to a Story


Escape Pod should be "Listen carefully... it's story time."

 Escape Artists - Trap them between your ears

       Another pea in Escape Pod


"AND DID THOSE FEET, IN ANCIENT TIMEWALK UPON ENGLAND'S MOUNTAINS GREEN?!?"

Pseudopod
The sound of fear (almost certainly already done to death)
The ice in your veins
The splinter in your mind
Maggots for your mind
Beautiful terror
The zombie in your closet
The weekly assault on your sanity
It's what lives under the bed
The definition of darkness
...it's waiting for you.

Escape Pod
Not just spaceships
More than space opera
Not your father's Star Wars/Asimov/whatever
Broaden your event horizons
Think you know sci-fi? Think again.
Get your jetpacks here!
An infinity of possibilities
The future has arrived. Again.
Your lifeboat to Tatooine.
Realizing your quantum possibilities.

Podcastle
Charting the fantastic
Now with 37% less elves!
The Conan of Fantasy Literature. Umm, wait...
No, not that kind of fantasy!!
From the fantastic to the sublime
It's not just about the unicorns
Broadcasting from behind your mind. (WHAT???)
New worlds aborning...
From a strangely familiar place
Fantasy for the now.


If you can get permission from Charles Stross, you really, really need to have an Escape Pod shirt that reads “Brains, fresh brains for baby Jesus!” with a picture of the farm creature from EP206: Rogue Farm.  Put the EP logo on the other side (front or back) from the side with the farm and the quote.

Sometimes, EVIL wears a t-shirt
