    Please let me know if my understanding is correct: The winners receive no prize except royalties based on sales of works that also appear online? Why is anyone going to buy the print version?

    Also, it appears that entries are posted to the public forum for voting, which if I'm not wrong means that you've already given away electronic rights for your work just by entering.

    I think it's an ambitious project and it may turn out to be great, but I also think the details might not have been worked out as well as they should have been.

    I think you are more right than you know. The main url for this website (which is now down by the way) was www.storystealers.com

    Yikes! Yes, thanks for posting this! I wasn't intending to enter, but I sure as hell won't consider it for a moment now.

    Question

    Doesn't this need to be posted to the Bewares board in case they do another name change with similarly devious intent?
