100 words for a story

A few weeks ago, the SciFi Round Table organized a competition : write a story with 100 words. Here is what I submitted :

The Professor bargained with the Devil. Prove Riemann hypothesis within a day for my soul. Otherwise, make me a rich man.

The Devil had hated mathematics for ages. He tricked many scientists just because he couldn’t stand science. But a bargain bound him. He worked like Hell, as only he could, travelled through Time and to other dimensions.

A day later, he had no solution. So he took the only decision he could.

He appeared in the Professor’s classroom and laid out his equations on the blackboard. Since then, any who knock at the door is transformed into a frog.

Nota : this is a rewriting of an old classics from the 60s I read long time ago The devil and Simon Flagg from Arthur Porges. He had the idea. I merely rewrote the story in 100 words. 🙂

The start of the adventure

The start came with Human Starpilots. I wanted to write for years, decades. I began reading science fiction as a boy, with french versions of Galaxy and Fiction.

How would you fare landing in a strange land, facing new rules? I wanted a large galaxy with many cultures and planets all around. Thus, the Federation Universe was born.

The Human Federation
