At least one of you saw this coming thanks to my blog post last week about the upcoming book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. You ask me, it's about time that the literary canon came back to life, shook off the foul dirt of the grave, and walked with a new, terrifying swagger. Like so:
Show us the cover of a classic literary work remixed to include zombies, monsters, vampires, or other horror elements.
Obviously, some classic literary works already deal with matters phantasmagorical. So if you're doing Frankenstein, you'll need to add an immortal axe murderer or a possessed Chevy or something.
Post your entry here by 11:59 AM CST on Monday, February 9, 2009.
Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for
winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it
goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave
painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be
judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are
fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 450px. If you need a
place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com.
We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use.
And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post
links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own
work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.
