scalziwheaton I’m about a week and a half behind the curve on this, but I’ve just noticed that John Scalzi and Wil Wheaton are putting on a fanfic contest. Write a 400-to-2000-word story based on a rather…remarkable painting featuring Scalzi and Wheaton by the end of the month, and you could win 10-cents-a-word payment for and publication of the story, plus a collection of books from Subterranean Press.

Winning stories will be sold in chapbook form to benefit the Lupus Alliance of America.

The entry deadline is 11:59 p.m. Eastern, June 30th 2010, with one entry allowed per person.

There’s no denying that’s a…remarkable picture. I’m not even sure where I would begin.
