Looks like I'll have a couple family members participating like last time.  We assume we'll be following the same rules as before and will not be voting for each other's stories.  Bdoomed, I'll let you know privately who we are.

Thanks!

So the voices in my head weren't kidding.  Flash IV is out and about and shaking its naughty junk in everybody's face.

And with only a little more than a week left, I...don't know if I can get anything out.

Not to put the cart before the horse, but is there an idea of what the schedule for the Podcastle and Escape Pod contests will be?  To have an idea when I need to have written my entry stories. Smiley

Hi, I'm new.  Just making my post to show I'm a human.  I'm terrible at forums so my apologies if I posted this weirdly/in the wrong place.  Nice to meet you.

The stories will show up in this sub-forum area starting October 1. We have two more days of submissions yet before we can finalize the brackets.

What if someone is a spambot, but still loves to write and read fiction and discuss the merits of stories?  I'm asking for a friend.

Unless they're fans of Harlan's I HAVE NO MOUTH, they would probably have a better time submitting stories to the future Escape Pod contest.

You know, I would love to see a spambot whose base personality programming is both Harlan Ellison and his fiction. That would be simultaneously terrifying and awesome.

Two of the three flash stories I've had published in Pseudop

Love it.  Smiley

Although I do think there's plenty of space in the concept of spambots to be a horror story.  Ferrett Steinmetz's Dead Merchandise comes to mind (though it would admittedly be very hard to fit something like that into 500 words).

A bit late, but I finally got my two pieces ready for the contest. Can't wait to see who 'll come out on top!

I think you may be able to rest easy. While it's definitely better to submit sooner than later, it looks like we still have one day and nine hours according to the submission portal.

But obviously don't rely on that. Because even if it's right, there's always things that could go wrong!

Using submittable, you can always withdraw and then submit the new version.

As long as Submittable allows you to enter stories, that's the submission window. The portal remaining open through midnight on the 15th *should* be consistent with how it was programmed.

Hey all, hopefully you'll accept a Johnny-come-lately entry.  Well, sub closes tomorrow, but I've always cut things close.  It's my first submission, please be gentle!

I just finished my piece and will sleep over it before submitting. Also - we can't be gentle, cause the process will be anonymous  Wink
