Well, it's that
time again: Halloween is just 30 days away. So get cracking! apocrypha
will come out with a special Halloween page, appended to this issue, on
the day itself. Just write a story with Halloween, or scary stuff, or the
supernatural and send it along -- you're automatically included!
words or fewer
|The main challenge
for next issue goes thusly:
Write a story
in which something significant happens to your protaganist for the first
time. Doesn't matter exactly, and it sure as heck doesn't have to be sexual.
Just pick some kind of milestone and write a story about it. Be sure your
readers understand what makes this event so significant to this character.

Jimena and Stephanie
have earned our esteem for knowing the correct answer to last issue's contest:
That is, the name of Tom Fontana, former executive producer of Homicide:
Life On The Streets, current executive producer (and arm-provider) for
the soon-to-be-extinct series Oz, and upcoming executive producer for HBO's
Baseball Wives. He also made this statement as a tongue-in-cheek storyline:"Briscoe
gets tired of being a New York cop, goes to Baltimore, convinces Munch
to quit, too. They move to South Beach, coaching an all-women volleyball
team. The spin-off runs six years. [We] retire, with smiles on our faces."
next contest, which we will make easier for those who need brain cells
for more important deeds. Within this issue of apocrypha is an "easter
egg," that is, a hidden link. It will lead you to a special L&O page,
so you'll know when you get there. Tell us 1) Where linked word (or) picture
is and 2) Who was the author of the saying on the page.
These are the
rules as we know them: Email the episode name
to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include
your FULL NAME and SNAIL-MAIL ADDRESS. Correct answers sent in by November
15, 2002 will have their names tossed in the skies, and the one that lands
in the most southeasterly direction wins. That lucky stiff will get a copy
of the Law
& Order script "Under The Influence." One entry per snail-mail address.
Partial entries will be DISCARDED without notice. Replacement entries will
not be accepted. apocrypha employees and their immediate family
members are disqualified, although treasured and welcome to more candy.
