Win a copy of The Martian Child on DVD!

The recent film The Martian Child was based on a story that originally appeared in F&SF by David Gerrold (also called “The Martian Child”). With that in mind, we’ve got a copy of the DVD to give away, and to win it, here’s what you need to do:

1. Pick a story from F&SF that you think would make a great movie. (The story should be one that hasn’t already been adapted to film before. So no remakes!)

2. Choose the director and/or screenwriter for the job.

3. Cast the film.

4. Come up with a nice Hollywood tagline for it.

5. To enter the contest, post a comment to this blog entry with your answers. The winning entry will be the one we feel did the best job playing producer. So creativity counts!

The contest starts now and will end Sunday, March 9 at 11:59 PM. We’ll announce the winner on Monday, March 10.

This promotion is made possible by the generous contribution of one DVD by the folks at New Line Cinema and mPRm Public Relations.
