Dr. Hurley’s Summer Contest Series № 1: Hurley Pulp

As Summer heats up, we artistic vagrant types spend less time in our sweltering garrets and more time frolicking on beaches and in parks. This leads to altogether too much distraction and a creative ebb. To combat Summer’s happy creative lull, Dr. Hurley recommends a series of super-short fiction contests to provide a challenge and a distraction!

The first year’s contests were a resounding success (The results can be seen here.) and we look forward to another rousing round of entries!

With no further ado, here is your assignment:

Hurley Pulp

Write one hundred (100) words in a pulp genre (romance, western, sci-fi, mystery) starring none other than the adventurous, dashing, otherworldly, and devious Dr. Hurley. While we continue assembling his biographical details, you will supply his fictional adventures. Your entries can be set in any period, any location, and any of the above-mentioned genres, but must feature the good Doctor. (For reference, see the biographical information contained here, here, here, here, and here.)

Submit your stories to snakeoilcure {at} gmail {dot} com by next Sunday, May 27th by 6 PM, Eastern. The best ones will appear shortly after that and winners will be chosen by your editors and by our readership.
