In Space No One Can See You Sparkle

In this month's flash fiction challenge we're taking mythological creatures from mankind's dark past, and asking what would happen if they inhabited the darkness between the stars. It's vampires...IN SPACE.

What we're looking for is a story of a thousand words or fewer that puts everyone's favourite bloodsuckers in a place you'd never expect to find them: outer space. As always we're looking for something that takes us by surprise, something that makes us think, something that makes our blood run cold. So grab your wooden stakes and take a stab at it.

The deadline for submission is August 16, 2013. Send your entries to hepodcast@gmail.com. Happy writing!

The winner will get $10 through paypal.
