Providing the Information That Sci-Fi Fans Need Announces Senryu Contest Winners

Since N. E. Lilly hasn’t posted this, I thought I’d do an extra weekend update to let you all know that over at he has announced the winners of the Space Western Senryu Contest.

For those who don’t know (like me until I read about it), a Senryu is apparently a darkly humorous haiku that deals with human nature. In this case they had to had elements of both science fiction and a western sensibility.

The competition was judged by Alana Joli Abott, Mark L. Van Name and Seamus Kevin Fahey who have added their comments after the entries.

While I do have the occasionally ambition to write fiction, I personally have no talent at all for haiku. Would it astonish anyone if I said I’m too verbose? Some of these entries are really good. Well worth a read.
