So, apparently, the blob really does exist. Off the the Alaskan shore. Here's the story in the Anchorage Daily News. So far "they" know:
1) It's not an oil slick
2) It's organic
3) It's gunky
3) It has hair-like strands
4) It's 12-15 miles long
5) No one has ever seen anything like it
So, what do you know about it? Write a speculative flash (under 1000 words) story about this Alaskan blob and email it to me before August 1, 2009. The winning story will be posted here and the winning author will receive a copy of Awesome Lavratt. Winner will be announced August 15, 2009. Please paste entries in body of email and include your real name, and pen name if applicable.
And though I promised I'd never do this...
