Menuge Wins Seat 14C Contest

“Didos Lament” by Aidan J.S. Menuge is the winner of XPRIZE’s Seat 14C writing contest. The theme was:

An airliner unexpectedly comes in for a landing 20 years in the passengers’ future. What is life like in the year 2037? What technologies and innovations are driving the changes that have happened?

In addition, leading sf authors including Gregory Benford, Madeleine Ashby and Margaret Atwood wrote point-of-view stories telling what the 22 passengers discovered when they deplaned in future San Francisco. The stories are online at the contest’s website.

Menuge will receive a $10,000 prize package, including a trip to Japan, and an Honorary Membership on the acclaimed Science Fiction Advisory Council.
