A gleeful Ant King rewards his faithful purple-fedora'd henchmen
Okay, the time has come to judge the Ant King Derivative Works Contest!
It's a hard thing to judge a contest with such a disparate bunch of differently ingenious entries. How do you compare a beautiful piece of electronic music to a Bulgarian translation of a short story? It's like comparing ants and oranges.
Nonetheless, I have to pick three winners, so here they are:
If you guys can email me ("info" at this hostname) with your snail addresses, I will get you signed and doodled-upon books.
I'm delighted by the other entries as well: Arachne Jericho's Mobipocket version, Lise Andreasen's highlighting of the meta-narrative aspects of "Biographical Notes..." , David's band "A Siege of Cranes", Aaron DaMommio's fifteenth Other City, E's joke and Zvi's tarot deck proposal.
Because they are well established in the field and I've worked with them in the past, I feel like Petar Toushkov's Bulgarian translation of "Falling" and Starship Sofa's podcasts of The Ant King and (this week!) of The House Beyond Your Sky really deserve their own "pro" category. I'm grateful as always for their work!
Last but not least, I am very excited about a derivative work which was not part of this contest: Nick Fox-Gieg's animated film of "The Orange":Posted by benrosen at March 8, 2009 12:19 PM | Up to blog
