Short Story Contest - December 1997
On December 13, 1997, a short story contest was run in the
SFNovelist writing workshop. The workshop is devoted exclusively
to hardsf novelists and this contest was a writing exercise only,
not a regular part of the workshop.
This year's theme: a member of SFNovelist who became a published author.
All the contributors are members of the SFNovelist writing workshop as of December 1997.
The following short stories are reprinted here by permission of the authors as a condition of the contest. However, each story is copyrighted by the respective author and copies cannot be distributed without the express permission of the authors.
As moderator of the workshop and sole judge of the contest, I selected "Home Among the Stars" by Richard Womack as the best overall story in the contest. This selection was made on the basis of sticking to the contest theme (a hard SF novelist who wrote a novel and succeeded) and story writing skills demonstrated, including dialogue, characterization, setting, etc.
The stories submitted for this contest were:
