Apex Digest Halloween Short Fiction Contest

So now I'm a "celebrity judge." Kind of fun - it's for Apex Digest's annual Halloween Contest. If you're not familiar with them, Apex Digest is a print magazine that publishes dark/grim/creepy science fiction (think "Aliens" and that sort of thing). My fellow celebrity judges on this project are Cherie Priest and Jennifer Pelland. I'm looking forward to working with them.

The Essentials:

* Theme: Post-Apocalypse
* Deadline: October 15th, 11:59 p.m. EST
