I have been going mildly crazy waiting for "The World Is Ending" Contest to announce winners. The contest is a promotion for the book _Static Mayhem_, by Edward Aubry. It's a blend of science fiction and fantasy that is immediate and approachable; one reviewer called it "horror", which it is not, as it is definitely about the triumph of the human spirit rather than the dissolution of the self. Scary? Yes. Horror, no.

So, the intriguing contest was to write a single paragraph about where YOU (or an alterego) were when the world ended. And I wrote what I thought was a credible paragraph with memories from Residency--when the End of the World would almost have been a relief. There was a popular vote, which put me in third place due to the kindness of friends and family on facebook.

Now, the grand prize--aside from a $100 Amazon.com gift certificate--is the totally cool concept that the author will incorporate the winning entry into a short story that will be included in the next edition of the book.
