A call to arms and/or word processors: We are conducting a war story contest. Genuine World-War-II-era spy cameras will be awarded to the authors of the three best yarns, fiction or non-fiction or whatever else, so long as they're no more than 700 words. Honorable mention gets you copies of the novel Seven Grams of Lead, when it's published in February. Submit stories using the form below or in an e-mail to kqthomson [at] gmail [dot] com. Pictures optional. Deadline is Oct. 31, a.k.a as the anniversary of England's Battle of Britain victory. Victors in this contest will be announced here on Veterans Day (Nov. 11). Go here for full contest rules. Over and out.
