Ancient Books Writing Challenge

Welcome to Ancient Books.

As we are a shop of unusual tastes, we thought it would be fitting to hold our first creative writing challenge!

What darkness slumbers in our twilight world?

H.P. Lovecraft once said, "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest fear is fear of the unknown."

Our challenge to you is to compose a modern, very short, tale of terror set in Nomos with a Lovecraftian twist.

1. The most important thing is the story, but we do care about good writing. Break rules for effect, not because you didn't use a spellchecker.
2. Stories should be no longer than 600 words.
We'll be looking at your ability to suggest a world, rather than to fill it in and dot every i.

Submission Deadline June 15th Midnight SLT.
Please send a note card with your short story to Joah Menjou or Niobe Flux

Prize: Winning story offered as a note card book in the shop
