I'm judging a short story competition hosted by Dark Futures Magazine.
The there of the challenge is "Blurred Lines":
One of the greatest characters in fiction is that of “the other”, those nearly but not-quite human characters we see so much of ourselves in. The best monsters, robots, and aliens blur the lines between us and them and it’s that push on the edges of our humanity that helps us understand who we are. Give us blurred lines, pushed boundaries, and others that make us ask, where do we end and they begin?
First place gets $15 and publication on the Dark Futures website as well as the next issue of Phase 2 Magazine. No fees. Awesomely handsome judge.

For those of you keeping track, that's two big announcements this week. But I'm not done! I've got another one for you next week so stay tuned!
