Thanks to the generosity of two UC contributors, John Garrett and Geoff Wright, (they’ve just sold their UC 27 feature Micro Is Beautiful to the Japanese) we are able to offer the following prizes for a short story ‘about the future’: a First Prize of £30 plus a five year sub; and two Consolation Prizes of £ 10 plus a two year sub.


1. Entries to our Clerkenwell Office to arrive not later than Wed 10 June 1981.

2. Maximum length 2500 words.

3. Entries must be typed, double-spaced, on one side of the paper only.

4. Illustrations for the story, preferably black and white line drawings, are welcome and will be taken into account.

5. The judge’s decision is final.

The competition will be judged by the science writer Malcolm Peltu. The winning entry will be published in Undercurrents 48 Oct/Nov, but copy­right will remain with the author.
