Well, yes and no.
I mean, obviously the *contest* for HCC17 is finished and can't be
reopened, but IIRC people have occasionally posted a story based on
an otherwise closed HCC. From private email I now that both Rob and
myself have stories that we were working on for HCC17 because we both
wanted to use... ah, but that would be telling. Anyway, I still want
to finish my HCC17 story with carnivorous unicorns chasing down and
eating zombies. It's just that that's not likely to happen before I
post my story about elven unicorns using Remember-To-Vote... Man as a
proxy in their war againast the psionic sasquatches who pilot flying
saucers with Atlantis number plates.
(and for which I might need to ask for an extention. we'll see.)
So while a late *entry* into the contest is unworkable, a late story
using the theme of the contest is fine. Don't see how we can stop you,
to be honest.
