2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Arthur C. Clarke, one of the UK’s greatest science fiction authors. To commemorate this, NewCon Press and the Arthur C. Clarke Award are collaborating to produce a very special anthology: 2001: An Odyssey In Words.
 
The book will feature original stories from some of the biggest names in genre fiction, including past winners of the Arthur C. Clarke Award. One additional story will be chosen by competition. Members of Eastercon were asked to submit a short science fiction story of exactly 2001 words. During this session three short-listed stories (selected by Ian Whates, proprietor of NewCon Press, and Tom Hunter, Director of the Arthur C. Clarke Award) will be read aloud. Members of the audience will help choose the winner, to be announced during the BSFA Award Ceremony. The successful author will receive a slot in the book, plus a cash prize of 2001p.
