Vote in the AFTER Short-Story Contest!

Editors Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling asked 19 writers the same question, “What happens after the end of the world?” The result is the new anthology AFTER: 19 Stories of Apocalypse and Dystopia

We challenged you to write your own story that answers that question. And write you did! Now it’s your chance to vote for the top 10 finalists who will be sent to Ellen and Terri for judging. (Did we mention how cool these two women are? And award-winning?)

Voting will run until Thursday, November 1 at 5:00 p.m. ET, so get reading, Figs!

One grand prize winner will receive copies of AFTER edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling, Beta by Rachel Cohn, Jepp, Who Defied the Stars by Katherine Marsh, False Memory by Dan Krokos, and The Fear by Charlie Higson.

One second prize winner will receive an eBook copy of AFTER from the iBookstore and a $10 Amazon gift card.

One third prize winner will receive an eBook copy of After from the iBookstore.
