Science Fiction Brewed Fresh Daily

“Vintage” Future Ads Contest

SpindizzyAuthor Mark A. Rayner is running a repeat of his Vintage Ads of Fictional Futures contest, with a deadline of October 4.

Here’s the concept: find a vintage ad, and then create a product from a created world — it can be from a book, movie, TV, etc. It doesn’t have to be science fiction; you could go with a fantasy world, an alternate reality, whatever. The only proviso is that it has to have been written by someone else, so none of your own bizarre fictional futures.

Full details are here. Grand prize is a Tuckerization in an upcoming novel.

I can’t wait to see the entries.
