Weeeee! Mushroom Men & Space Squid

How's this for a weird and yet wonderful competition:

SPACE SQUID, the Sci-Fi Humour magazine, in associated with GamecockMedia.com and RevolutionSF.com, have announced a competition.

THE MUSHROOM MEN FICTION CONTEST.

A free writing contest where the first prize is a free Wii game console and a copy of the new Wii video game Mushroom Men!

Other prizes include Les Claypool Mushroom Men rock posters, Mushroom Men baseball caps, trading cards with sweepstakes codes, Mushroom Men squeezy toys, and copies of Mushroom Men for the Wii and for the Nintendo DS. Runner-up stories will appear on the fiction page of RevolutionSF.com and in a special supplementary issue that will be seen by hundreds of people at gaming events like the Penny Arcade Expo.

The first-prize story will appear in the supplementary issue, RevolutionSF.com, Space Squid issue #6, and may appear as promotional material for the game elsewhere. Now that is some prize!

The closing date is August 1st, 2008 and your story should be between 500 & 1500 words. More details can be found at the Space Squid site.

this falls in the "woooah, okay, too weird for even ME" category.

still, kinda cool tho...

It's never too weird.

Though you are kinda stuck with a useless story when you don't win.

That looks like fun. I'll have to get to writing. Thanks for posting it, Cate.

And your site is very dark and bewitching. Looks terrific.

Thanks again for stopping by mine.

Grrr, I hate visiting your blog, you always find some cool contest or sub call and then I end up giving up my current project due to you. :P

Seriously speaking, thanks for this, I already wrote and subbed a story but I think I'll stop there. No potential if you don't win, seeing as its copyrighted material and all that...

I aim to annoy. ;)

Good luck with your entry.
