The Nautilus Engine is hoping to inspire a bit of creative writing. Shocking, you say? Indeed.

Base your story on this photo, either strongly or loosely, but within the guidelines set forth for all our story submissions (see sidebar). Submit by October 23rd, 2011. Best story, as determined by the NE staff, will be published at The Nautilus Engine on Halloween day to much fanfare and accolades!
