Phantasm Japan winners!

Thanks for all the great comments on short stories this week. Here are the entries we liked the best. Honestly, I’d like to give everyone a free copy…well, honestly, I’d like to be able to charge you all $100 and keep all the money myself…but anyway, the winners!

First up, Stephen! Most of the poems we get are either senryu or other light verse. But he wrote a real poem. Of course he gets a book!

And then, Larry! He did his own translation work for us! Geez! (Lots of intellectuals entered this contest.)

Our third book goes to Tanya, for her entry on “The Things” by Peter Watts, which is a story we loved as well.

And finally…how can we resist giving a copy to CW, who so cleverly mentioned “Autogenic Dreaming: Interview with the Columns of Clouds” from our last big anthology! We’re not above flattery, you know. Frequently, we’re below it.

That’s it for now. Tune in soon for an Asura Girl giveaway and more news!

It’s the PHANTASM JAPAN giveaway contest!

A new book is in the office, so it’s time to get them out! Phantasm Japan is coming out next month, but you can have it NOW…if you win our traditional giveaway contest.

It’s very simple: tell us a bit about your favorite short story of all time. Phantasm Japan is a book of short fiction from both Japanese and non-Japanese writers, covering everything from traditional folk tales to the heights of the New Weird, so we are wide open to what’s good. It needn’t be a fantasy or science fiction short story, but honestly, it’ll help if it is.

Write a comment on this post—and it can be in Japanese or Spanish or German or Greek (or English!) in the form of a small essay or poem or riddle or whatnot, and on Friday at noon we will select four winners and send them (or YOU!) a copy of the book. We’re a big company, so we ship anywhere.

Simple, eh? So get to typing and around noon (Pacific time) on Friday, we’ll announce the winners! Get to playing!
