Speaking of models...
- No one has qualified for first prize in the Challenge 80 contest: to identify the model of Toby Wallis’s “The Artificer.” The contest is still open for second prize: write and tell us what you think the first unmistakable clue — or combination of clues — to the model of “The Artificer” might be. The contest closes on Saturday midnight (your time) at the end of the run of this issue.
Thomas R.’s alternate-history articles have become a staple of Bewildering Stories. His third profile of a semi-immortal, Willem Van Leeuwen, appears in “Anti-Geria,” in this issue.
Using Thomas R.’s premise in “Anti-Geria,” write us a biographical sketch of a semi-immortal person.
- The person may be historical or imaginary.
- The mode may be comedy, satire, realism or even horror.
- The setting may be an alternate universe or our own.
- The time may be past, present or future.
- The format may be a scholarly article like Thomas R.’s, or an interview, like Eric S. Brown’s with Stephanie D. Weidner. Or, if you think of another format, you may use that.
Long live your character! And let the good times roll.
Please send us your ideas!
