The latest F&SF competition closes next week, so here's a reminder to get those poems in!



Retell a well-known science fiction or fantasy story in the form of a haiku. (First line, 5 syllables; second line, 7 syllables; third line, 5 syllables.)

Limit your expertise to six entries, and try to make them funny.


"A Boy and His Dog" by Harlan Ellison:

A boy loves his dog.
Dog is hurt. Needs meat to live.
Dog loves boy's girl cooked.

Send entries to
Competition Editor, F&SF,
240 West 73rd St. #1201,
New York, NY 10023-2794,
or email entries to carol-at sign-cybrid.net.

Be sure to include your contact information. Entries must be received by November 15, 2007. Judges are the editors of F&SF, and their decision is final. All entries become the property of F&SF.
