John W. Campbell Award Smear Campaign

The John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer is an honor bestowed upon promising new writers in speculative fiction. I’m eligible, but let’s be realistic: nobody knows who I am, there are better writers out there, and besides, I’m really short. As tantalizing as the prospect of an award I have to wear on my head is, I think my efforts are best concentrated on deliberately smearing my opponents for the sheer hilarity of it.

If you’re eligible for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer and you’re not a scaredy-cat, you should take advantage of some free publicity. Sure, no one reads my blog except the FBI, but “no publicity is bad publicity as long as they get your name right.” And your name is probably the only thing I won’t lie about! (You’re welcome.)

Just leave a comment in this post with your e-mail address (comments are moderated and I will never unmoderate them, so it’s private). I’ll e-interview you with questions you wish I hadn’t asked and post it here with links to your work, your website, and possibly the fake online dating profile I’ll make for you at OompaLoompaBooty. If you’re really lucky, I won’t illustrate the interview, but no promises.

    I appreciate the fake link for its humor but I am disappointed that I can’t cyber-stalk some shortrounds. Shame on you Skerry.

    And I really do hope some people take advantage of this
