Weird Tales Contest

You've seen the latest wave of spam -- you know, the faux outrageous news headlines: "Osama trains goats for tactical bombing." "Laika the Russian space dog returns to Earth." "Children admit to being little shits: Video." Isn't it a shame the headline is all we get? So here at Weird Tales we're inviting YOU to turn this spam into... um... spam-ade!

Write a flash-fiction story -- under 500 words -- based on a spam you've received. Send it to *contest@weirdtales.net* before 9 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 4. The Weird Tales editorial team will judge them, and three winners will be announced at the Weird Tales reception on Friday, Aug. 8 at the World Science Fiction Convention in Denver!

The first-, second-, and third-place winners will all be published
online at WeirdTalesMagazine.com the week of August 11. The first- and second-place winners will also receive three free issues of Weird Tales; and the first-place winner will also receive an autographed copy of Ekaterina Sedia's new novel The Alchemy of Stone.

Note: entries from Nigeria will be examined very closely.
