OKAY, WE’RE BACK…!
To the world of great original science-fiction TV shows set in SPACE. Let me tell you, thus far it’s gone really well…we’ve had everything from the idea that “Space Is Canadian”, to Andersonian future space, to a second run at John Varley doing a second run at Robert Heinlein, by way of Battlestar Galactica…to Barry N. Malzberg crossed with Gerry Anderson, to Pure Dr. Who, to a Larry Nivenoid Space: 1999, to weird crazy-ass Van Vogt/ T.J. Bass/ Ellisonian Medea stuff…
…But now’s the time of the trick, clever people.
I need another submission from everyone who’s made an (amazing!) first one…and I want it to be even better. Matthew, this is going to be a trick and a half for you…my advice is to make your space even more Canadian. Andrew Hickey: you will have to write more pseudo-Dr. Who (hint: study “Psychohistorical Crisis”). All others: pull up your socks, this is the death-match. Prizes for the winners, waking nightmares for the losers! The shades will be drawn! The veils will be lifted! The neutronium skies will send down their grey destructive rain!
The full truth will be revealed!
(But, um, the prizes are just books…right? Everyone understands that?)
SO LET THE CONTEST BEGIN!
