Chris Howard’s Rootless takes a dark view of what could happen if corporations ruled the world. Set in a bleak future with no trees and only genetically enhanced corn to eat, nature as we know it now no longer exists. The totalitarian GenTech runs every aspect of human life–they control the corn–and beautiful forests are made of scrap metal for those wealthy enough to afford such extravagance.
Inspired by the total control of GenTech, we challenged you to write a story about a giant corporation that has taken over. You all wrote some very awesome stories, and now it’s your turn to help choose the ten finalists that will be sent to Chris for judging!
Voting will run until Monday, November 26 at 5:00 p.m. ET, so get hearting, Figgies!
Two runners-up will each receive a copy of Rootless and a Rootless bookmark!
