  1. Loved reading about this op, but this one is way out of my league I fear! Thanks for keeping us informed, Donna.

    1. Hi Claudia,
      You are welcome. This one is beyond my reach, too.

  2. I checked the link and didn't see an age limit. I might pass this on to my 16-year-old son. That's what he writes.

    1. Hi Val,
      Hope your son submits. It sounds like a great opportunity, and the publisher is very generous with the amount paid, contributor copies, and discount on copies!

  3. Donna--I like to read sci-fi (did it a lot more when I was younger) but I cannot write it. I wish I could...Thanks for passing along the opportunity. I'm sure someone will see it and a big lightbulb will go off in their head.

    1. Hi Sioux,
      Guess I'm one of those without a scientific brain. I admire writers who can create their own worlds and hope they will submit to the anthology. It sounds like an amazing project.

  8. My sci-fi writing skills are iffy, although I love reading it (and I was a Star Trek fan way back before it was cool). This looks like fun. I'll definitely bookmark it. Thanks!
