FUTURES Twist! Contest, 2002 has extended its deadline
FUTURES MYSTERIOUS ANTHOLOGY MAGAZINE's (FMAM) annual “Twist”
contest will now be called SLESAR'S TWIST and features prizes for the best twist
ending short stories as characterized by the Hitchcock style of stories written by Henry
Slesar. Hitchcock called Henry the 'master of the ironic'. Keep that word in mind as you
write. You will find many examples of Henry's twist stories in the collection "Death On
Television The Best of Henry Slesar's Alfred Hitchcock Stories." We have featured one
of these great stories, or more, in each of the FMAM past issues, so read back, too. All
entries must be submitted to FUTURES by Feb 20, 2003.
First through third prize winners will be entered in the New Century Short Story contest

Hollywood productions, and we believe YOU have the talent to provide what they're
looking for. First prize includes $200 and a caricatoon by Jim “Toonman” Oddie
featuring the winner and Alfred Hitchcock. The second prize winner will receive $65,
while the third prize winner will be awarded a one- year subscription to FUTURES. In
addition, there will be five honorable mention awards with original art certificates by Pete
Welling and a copy of the Summer FMAM to those winners!
