Please, no YA, tween or children’s stories. I’m looking for stories that are adult and along the lines of Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick, Issac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, etc. Space operas and humorous sci-fi like Douglas Adams welcomed. The winners will be announced October 31st and I’ll use PayPal to distribute the prize money (winners can choose a check if they prefer). E-mail a Word doc of your story with word count, title and indicate that it’s for Teleport’s Science Fiction contest. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and good luck,
