Starcherone Contest?

Maybe not a useful post, but if anything it reminded me that I have a few books that I must still purchase.

Starcherone Books has announced contest guidelines for its annual Innovative Fiction Contest.

The 2009-10 contest, offering $1000 and publication with Starcherone Books, is now accepting entries. Contest is open to story collections, novels, or indeterminate prose works up to 400 pages. Manuscripts will be blind-judged; the author’s name should appear on the first of two title pages and nowhere else in the manuscript. There is an administrative fee of $30. Please do not send cash. The postmark deadline is February 15, 2009. The winner will be announced in August 2009. All finalists will be considered for publication with Starcherone Books. See our ad in the November/December issue of Poets & Writers.

Also, they have a special offer going for those who want to submit. If you add an additional $10 to your entry fee, they’ll throw in a copy of The Lost Books of the Odyssey for your trouble.

Ben Marcus is the final judge.
