Return to Lunar

I am posting mine on the internet since it didn't get mentioned here...

Ooh, an honorable mention for me too. :-) Now I'm feeling extra motivated to come up with something good to send in to Footprints.



I keep looking at this list and can't help but think this is either some unbelievable dream or some incredible practical joke.

Whatever it is, congratulations to everyone who made it on both lists. Woo!

Luna Contest

Although my first-ever attempts at the genre were a flop, the journey was great fun. All the best to the winners and thanks again to Eric T. and his associates for the opportunity.

When Can We Read 'em

Congratulations to all the winners and honorable mentions!!! When/where can we read them? An anthology comes out when? The next issue of Ad Astra Magazine will have some, all?
On a different note: the panel of judges had a difficult job, because of many good entries including 4 from our local L5 society. They had to consider not just good writing (our entries, of course met that criterion :)), but also fit of theme. My mystery/spy thriller/family story no doubt barely satisifed the minimum in theme, or was possibly antithetical to the required theme, but I'm hoping my writing style was acceptable. I will re-examine my copy before sending it on to Dr. Stan at Analog magazine.
And, a big thank you to the National Space Society (NSS) for holding the contest, and to Hadley Rille Books and the judges.

Re: When Can We Read 'em

The plan is for the anthology to be out late this year. The grand prize winner will also appear in Ad Astra.
Congratulations to everyone!
