Perry’s Killer Playlist Flash-Fiction Contest: Day 2

Perry Stormaire thought his days of being shot at were over. He survived his first adventure with Gobi, the geeky-exchange-student-turned-assassin, and he’s more than ready to put the past behind him. But he can’t resist the lure of adventure. On a European tour with his band, Inchworm, Perry finds himself heading to Harry’s Bar to meet up with Gobi. Before he realizes what’s happening, his life is one again filled with explosions.

Inspired by the Perry’s adventures in Joe Schreiber’s novel Perry’s Killer Playlist, we’re hosting a flash-fiction contest!


Every day, we will be giving you a new action-adventure scenario. In 150 words or fewer, you’ll write your own action-adventure scene.

You have 24 hours (until 11:59 p.m. ET on the day the prompt is posted) to enter a story in response to the prompt. You can enter one story for each day’s prompt. If you respond to multiple prompts over the course of the challenge, those stories do not have to be related.


The Figment editors will choose the 10 best entries from the entire week and send them to Joe Schreiber, who will choose one grand-prize winner! The grand-prize winner will receive a $50 iTunes gift card along with copies of Perry’s Killer Playlist and Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber.

Five daily winners, chosen by the Figment editors, will each receive copies of Perry’s Killer Playlist and Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick.
