A plug for a story AND the Indie-pendence Day Anthology!

Entries continue to roll in for the First Annual Indie-Pendence Day Anthology, which will feature stories about time travel by indie authors.  First prize is $15.  Details are here for the detail-oriented, but the long and short of it is:


1. Write a time-travel story. Length can be from 1 to infinity words.
2. Email it to litaplaceforstories[at]gmail.com.
3. WIN! (HOPEFULLY).

To show you how easy it is.. here's a short story I wrote that kind of has to do with time travel, in a way:


Our Time-O-Scope Shows That All Of The Kids At The Science Fair Will Go On To Do Great Things, Except For Tommy, Who Will Die Horribly By The End Of This Fair.


Welcome, everyone, to the 14th annual Bronson LaFollette 8th Grade Science Fair, where this year for the first time we will be judging the entries not just on originality, completeness, and scientific accuracy, but also on how much today’s performance in the science fair impacts your little darling’s future performance in society, thanks to the Time-O-Scope that Mr. Ott has finally perfected....

There's been so much time travel lately. First this and then X-Men: Days of Future Past...and then there's Continuum on SyFy.

We're late to the trend. But I intend to go back in time and make it look like they're copying us.
