Because Indy’s native son so mastered the art form, we have decided to offer an annual award to a novel in the great tradition of literary science fiction. Named for one of Kurt Vonnegut’s most recognizable characters, this is not your space cowboys whupping it up with hell-bent-on-destruction-for-the-sake-of-destruction kind of tales. We are looking for science fiction with a bend towards to social commentary as well as keen sense of where it is and who is involved. The winning manuscript will receive a $400 prize, the publication of that manuscript in the Kilgore Trout Series in 2016, a standard book contract for this title (and possibly future books) and 10 copies of the finished novel.

All manuscripts must be double-spaced and a minimum of 65 pages (novellas) or 145 pgs (novels).  The work must be new and original and not have been published elsewhere in full book form. All submissions will be considered for publication with a book contract. All submissions must be accompanied by submissions fee or they will not be read.
