If popular culture has taught us anything, this is a bad idea.
But it presents a great opportunity for speculative fiction! So I’ve decided to hold a little writing contest. Whoever can come up with the best idea for what’s sealed inside the lead coffin-within-a-coffin before midnight, Aug. 31, 2013, will be awarded one internet. And also a $10 Amazon gift card (continental U.S. only). There’s no limit on the number or length of entries, but only one entry will be selected (by me) as the winner. Others may receive honorary mentions.
You can email your entries to me at mattevanprobst (at) gmail [dot] com or provide them in the comments below.
