In celebration of the ebook edition release of Vonda N. McIntyre's Nebula-winning novel, THE MOON AND THE SUN, BVC is hosting a Beaded Sea Creature caption contest. Beaded sea creatures are creations of McIntyre with designs based on hyperbolic and fractal surfaces. Sherzad, the sea monster, one of the main characters in THE MOON AND THE SUN, would be familiar with creatures very like these: Coral reefs, sea anemones, nudibranchs, marine flatworms.

McIntyre's creatures have been exhibited in conjunction with The Institute for Figuring's ( Hyperbolic Coral Reef (, at installations in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dublin, etc. The next installation will be at the Smithsonian, in Washington, D.C., USA, in the fall of 2010.

BVC is currently in need of appropriate captions for photos of the creatures displayed on their site. Asking fans to submit ideas in exchange for a chance to win a copy of THE MOON AND THE SUN as well as one of McIntyre's sea creatures is the perfect solution.

The contest for captions is running until Saturday, 1am (CDT). Announcement of winners will be at the BVC site on Sunday, June 20, 2010. Instructions for entering the contest as well as photos of the creatures can be found at:
