Yes, this is more than a bit off topic... Fellow bloggers at Medgadget are holding a medical science fiction writing competition.

Judges will be blinded. Blinded by your dazzling prose, yes, but also
to your identity. We are assembling an all-star judging panel, so you
can be assured your work will be reviewed by accomplished writers,
physicians, and fans of Battlestar Galactica. To help us with grading your papers, Enoch from Tech Medicine, GruntDoc, and Josh from KidneyNotes will be judges.

You must complete your 500-2,500 word medical sci-fi opus by December 1st. Winners will be published on Medgadet.
