Baen Memorial Award (Near Future Hard SF)

Postby s_c_baker » Thu Jan 07, 2016 5:26 pm

Okay, how does this NOT have a thread already?!

The Jim Baen Memorial Award is an annual contest for near-future hard SF stories of up to 8000 words. Winners receive publication at pro rates, as well as "an engraved award, free entry into the 2016 International Space Development Conference, a year's membership in the National Space Society and a prize package containing various Baen Books and National Space Society merchandise."

Full details can be found here:

Most importantly, though: Entry is free and the deadline is 12:01am, U.S. Pacific Time, February 1, 2016. (that is, just AFTER midnight on the last day of January.)

Get to writin'!

I knew about this contest when it opened for submissions this year, but I had zero ideas until a week or so ago. But this new idea actually isn't that bad...
