Short Echoes Challenge #4 - The Jar That Was Bigger Than The World

"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space."

Or, at least, so we've been led to believe. But this month's challenge asks the question, what happens when you reach the edge? What happens when you stare beyond the bounds of reality and find something else staring back at you?

As usual we invite you to interpret this idea in your own way. The winner will receive ten dollars and will have their story produced in audio form and published on the podcast. The deadline for entry is June 14, 2013. We enjoy the weird, the horrific, the original. We have broad tastes, so check out out other Short Echoes series stories to hear what we like.

Thanks to Start Your Novel for the original idea for this prompt which you can find here.

Please send your manuscript to HEPodcast @ We prefer double spaced Word documents.
