Thanks to everyone who has put together a product, service or concept from a fictional future with a vintage ad — there are 30 entries all told, and boy the judging is going to be tough. I’ll post the finalists tomorrow morning, and then let you all vote on who wins. What are the stakes? Well, they’re listed below.
In an effort to keep this page from crashing again, I’ve done a collage of just a few of the entries. Click on it, or here, to see all 30 entries:
So, find some vintage ads, and then insert a product from a fictional future — it can be from a book, movie, TV, etc. The only proviso is that it has to have been written by someone else, so none of your own bizarre fictional futures. (Someone else’s bizarre future is fine, so all you William S. Burroughs fans are not barred from competition.)
- create your masterpiece
- post it to your blog
- link to this post (or better yet, let me know where it is via email or in the comments)
- wait for the aplomb and/or ridicule of your peers.
There are prizes!
What, pray tell is the prize? Well, if you win, you can choose from:
- a prominent walk-on role in my next novel
- a copy of THE AMADEUS NET
- a “mystery” item from within the bowels of my desk.
The second-place winner will choose from the remaining prizes, and the bronze winner gets whatever is left. Worth playing for? The contest will run until (Sunday, April 20).
