Patrick Lundrigan of New Jersey has won the 2010 Jim Baen Memorial Writing Contest with his entry “Space Hero.”
The result was announced on May 11, but had largely gone unnoticed til Baen copied the press release to news bloggers this week.
First runner-up was “Citizen-Astronaut” by David Levine of Portland, Oregon and second runner up was “High Ground” by Australian writer Stuart Gibbon.
The full press release follows the jump.
