Out of This World Blog Contest

Greetings, everyone! Thanks for stopping by! I'm helping out my friend Angie Lofthouse today by hosting her blog contest, today featuring her short story "Ripped," which first appeared in Amazing Journeys in March 2005. Previously, it won 2nd prize in the 2001 Science Fiction Writers of Earth Short Story contest. Contest reviewer Larry Taylor said:

"At the beginning of Angie Lofthouse's "Ripped" three usually clearly distinguished spheres are posited: past, present, and future. By the end, we're not so sure that these are immutable."

To enter The Out of This World Adventure giveaway, click on the story title to read the story, then come back here and answer the following question in the comments:

If you were getting a big bonus check to leave the planet, who would you give the money to?

Your comment will give you one entry in the grand prize drawing (includes an Amazon gift card, free book and other fun stuff!), plus one commenter on this post will win a Milky War bar. Mmmm. Include your email address, if it isn't on your profile, so we can contact the winners.

Be sure to visit the other stops on the Adventure and good luck!


  1. i would leave the money to the susan b coleman foundation

  2. Cool, Tiff. Thanks so much for hosting the story, Todd!

  3. I'm pretty boring in this respect; I'd probably leave the money to any family members remaining behind, whether it's husband, kids, or siblings. If that's not an option for whatever reason, then to a charity like Heifer.org.

  4. Thanks for putting my blog on your tour! ;-)

  5. Hey, I forgot to answer the question! Presuming that my family was coming with me, I'd leave the money to LDS Philanthropies.

  6. I would leave the money first to my family then to improve parking on BYU or UVU campus :)

  7. Well, I still owe my parents for college, so my money would go to them. If I could split it, I would also like to give some to my old high school.


I love comments, and do my best to answer everyone who stops by...
