What they want:
For this contest we’re seeking speculative fiction short stories set in a post-apocalyptic world. It can be Earth or some other world.

The genres include science fiction (hard or sociological), science fantasy, fantasy, magic realism, psychological horror (no slash and gash please), ghost stories, urban fantasy, paranormal romance (no erotica please), etc. With that in mind, send us your best effort.
