First Fandom Experience has announced the Cosmos Prize, a contest inviting writers to create a new final chapter for the novel Cosmos, published serially in Science Fiction Digest starting in June 1933. The novel was based on a plot by editor Raymond A. Palmer, who also coordinated the 16 writers who took part (including Edmond Hamilton, Otis Adelbert Kline, and A. Merritt). The contest organizers think Cosmos “deserves a better ending than it got” and invite authors to provide that ending, with a total of $500 in cash prizes for winners and runners-up. Submissions are due by January 15, 2020. For details and rules: <firstfandomexperience.wordpress.com/writing-contest-500-in-prizes>.
