Thanks to everyone who submitted and to those who shared the announcement. The editors and judge loved reading these stories and hope to encourage all to write and submit their stories, extra fiction or otherwise.
Stay tuned for the publication of the finalist stories here on Somos en escrito.
…and happy Halloween from Somos en escrito.
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 10.8.2021!
Do you think your story is too far out for any magazine to accept? Did you submit a yarn that was rejected because it was beyond fiction? Not too far out for us!
We've even started a contest!
Calling all writers in any genre going beyond the norm, who reflect the wide range of science fiction, fantasy, horror, spec-lit, or just weird—in other words, extra-fiction.
Ernest Hogan was born in East L.A. His mother’s name was Garcia. He grew up in West Covina, which he considered one of the most boring places in California. Monster movies, comic books, and science fiction, he says, saved his life. The author of High Aztech, Smoking Mirror Blues, and Cortez on Jupiter, his short fiction has appeared in Amazing Stories, Analog, Science Fiction Age, Somos en escrito, and many other publications. Recently discovered by academia, his “Chicanonautica Manifesto” appeared in Aztlan: A Journal of Chicano Studies. He blogs at mondoernesto.com.
