Over at his AMC blog, John Scalzi is holding a writing contest based on various science fiction movies and science fiction filmmakers.

Stung by the reviews of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen that describe the flick as being utterly without any redeeming qualities, director Michael Bay declares that the next Transformers movie will have a story and script based on one of the plays of William Shakespeare.
