The Martian Child DVD Giveaway Winner!
Congratulations to Jacob P. Silvia whose entry in our The Martian Child DVD giveaway contest was chosen as the winner.
These were the rules of the contest:
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!
