Following the success of the 2009 Warren Adler Short Story Contest, Mr. Adler is sponsoring another international competition. The theme is simply short fiction in all of its varied genres.

Although Mr. Adler will have already chosen the winner, the five finalists' stories will be posted on the Warren Adler website. The People's Choice winner will be determined by public voting. Warren Adler's top choice, along with the People's Choice winner, will be announced.

Submissions will be accepted until April 11, 2010. The entry fee is $15.
Five cash prizes will be awarded.
• 1st Prize: $1000
