Desdmona's 2006 Hard-Boiled Sex Contest:
The gun. The innocent victim who isn't really all that innocent. The tough, callous detective. The femme fatale with the dirty little secret.
You've read the stories and secretly loved them. Hard-boiled stories are everywhere: pulp magazines, noir movies, true crime books, and detective novels are just a few sources. Whether they're from Edgar Allen Poe, Raymond Chandler, Dennis Lehane, or Frank Miller, they've been
popular for as long as fiction has been published.
Now we want to see hard-boiled sex stories. We'll grant you broad leeway on the theme -- dead bodies aren't a requirement, nor are alcoholic private dicks. But we want tough, and we want edgy, and we want the story to be as hot as Hades.
Desdmona's 2006 Hard-Boiled Sex Contest is an erotic short story contest. There is no entry fee. Stories must be received by Monday, May 15, 2006. Prizes will be awarded to the judges' three favorite stories:
First prize: $500
Second prize: $250
Third prize: $125
Honorable mention prizes of $40 will be awarded at the discretion of desdmona.com and the judges. Winners will be picked by our judges and will be based on quality of writing, erotic appeal, and originality. Please, be imaginative! The winning stories and honorable mentions will be
displayed on desdmona.com on Thursday, June 1, 2006.
