Author Quest

We are pleased to announce the winner,
J.M. Lee!

We are absolutely thrilled to have received nearly 500 submissions for the Dark Crystal Author Quest. The array of talent and creativity is extraordinary. The quality of what was submitted exceeded our wildest dreams. We want to thank everyone who participated. These stories show that the world of The Dark Crystal is alive in the imaginations of these writers. What each brought to their stories is unique and engaging. Thank you for sharing your stories with us.

In January, the editors at Grosset & Dunlap read every submission and chose their favorite 25. My sister Lisa Henson, Wendy Froud and I, together with Rob Valois, Francesco Sedita and Lori Burke of Grosset & Dunlap have now read all 25 of these and together chose the top 5 finalists. Every story is fascinating, rich in detail and character. We each have our favorites.

We would like to congratulate all 25 authors who have made it to this stage. We would like to acknowledge your talent and invite you to share your stories on the Fan Fiction area of the site as well as the Forums.

We are so excited to have found so many excellent writers who are interested in the world of The Dark Crystal. Thank you for participating.

Sincerely,
Cheryl Henson
Founder, DarkCrystal.com
