ok, so you want a title the is both science-fictional and spiritual, and poetic -- but somewhat ponderous in its phrasing -- that somehow also articulates the plight of the common man in uncommon circumstances...

now that the contest is over, I just want to say that my personal favorite was Dave's "Now Here Is Everywhere". And Congrats to jaldhar.

Neal said...

I really liked this game. maybe we need to start a Dick board.

jaldhar said...

Yay!

Thanks for running the contest. My favorite was "Man on the High Staircase" and I thought "Now Wait For Mainstream Literary Acceptance" would have won for sure.

Btw, anaclepses is a Koine Greek theological term meaning the profound sadness a character of philosophical significance feels when he is replaced by a wisecracking robot played by Adam Sandler in the Jerry Bruckheimer adaption of his story. Or I made it up.

Ragle, I can't find a contact address for you. Where do I send my mailing details? I'd rather not post them here (though I'm sure Spiro Agnew knows exactly where I live.)

Ragle Gumm said...

jaldhar,
my email address is dcgill@sfsu.edu
Damn! Now Spiro Agnew knows where I live!

Thanks again to one and all who played - you're all winners and stay tuned we'll do it again real soon.
