Ladies and gentleman, standing in for sam512 and with the blessing of m'lady grundoon, robotic ballerina extraordinaire, I'm declaring January 1st, 2011 - February 1st, 2011 to be the month of...

SciFiQuest 2011: The Undiscovered Nodegel



PLEASE NOTE: Due to squids attacking grundoon's brain and cassparadox being in an alcohol-soaked coma in the aftermath of the Thanksgiving nodermeet, we had a clerical error, and will be giving out GP instead of XP for rewards. Sorry for the confusion!

That's right, we're back for another year of robots gone mad, starships gone sentient, and genetic fables spun by aliens! We're looking for factual and fictional nodes about science fiction - no science factuals allowed, sorry, we're focusing solely on the fandom, the fiction and things like reviews of short stories, novels, movies, and science fiction publications like Analog, Locus, and Strange Horizons.

I'm looking for cyberpunk, alternate reality, and grey goo gone horribly wrong. Rampaging robots? Interstellar empires? Post-apocalyptic Mad Max-style racing? Aliens marooned on earth, living amongst disgusting, meat-ridden humans? Go for it! Be creative!

How I Shot Klingons?

What's in it For Me?
