Where were you when the Star Wars bug caught you? Was it back then in 1977, or did you get bitten and smitten some time later? Still, you had to see A New Hope at some point, and what did that experience do for you, mean to you, inspire you to do? Who is your favorite character? What is your favorite moment?
Seriously, I'm looking for any and all takers who are wishing to sound off on the George Lucas creation, so I'm putting out this clarion call to any interested parties: if you'd like to write something in celebration of this milestone, then I'd love to hear from you.
Now, granted, my job as an online editor is to make sure SciFiHistory.Net is putting out as high quality efforts as is humanly possible, so I'll still have to review and/or edit and/or make changes for the sake of posterity (yours and mine) ... but that's really the only qualifier. I'd like to have as many folks who'd like to participate, so consider this an online challenge: you want to submit something, then get on the stick.
Submissions can be sent to me directly as my email -- email@example.com -- and in the meantime May The Force Be With You!
