Depth? In Fantasy Literature? Preposterous! June 24, 2008 - July 24, 2008
Reading and Deliberating
A lot of fantasy nowadays is chock full of eye-exploding magic duels and epic confrontations fit for a role-playing game, but there hasn't been a whole lot of good depth; depth of characters, their humanity and struggles, and, well...dynamic-ness. Also depth of stories...no more DnD style dungeon romps with a wizard, ranger, barbarian, priest, and paladin...show the rest of the literary world that Fantasy is capable of the depth of other genres and is worthy to be read and pondered over!
This is just for short fantasy stories. This isn't a definite rule, but it would be great if the submissions are new work, and are stand-alone stories, not part of a novel or other series. Let's see how deep we can get our fantasy to be without becoming windbags! Anyone can participate, and the winner will be decided by a member vote. I'm giving you a long time (2 months) to do this, so hopefully we'll see some truly deep, thought-provoking, and moving pieces of fantasy literature.
**This contest has been reopened and I promise this time I will actually finish it!!**
The everlasting respect and admiration from your fellow Cafe-goers!
