[2010's STORIES & ART] [2009's STORIES & ART]



Welcome to the third year of Boom, Boom, Baby!

This is a challenge instituted to celebrate the fact that more than eight years after the last episode aired, there's still life in OZ - and the 2011 Big Bang shows that's truer than ever.

When we set out to host a Big Bang and set a requirement of 25,000 words, we wanted to encourage authors to stretch a little bit, to get out on the yard, to challenge themselves to produce some of the longer work they'd considered but hadn't committed to writing. We also knew we had to get our fandom's talented artists in the mix. In our third year, we are still going strong!

Our pool of participants in 2011 expanded to include newcomers, as well as some of 2010's tried-and-true. We finished this year's Big Bang with the work of three writers and five artists who produced an incredible amount of work.

Our sincerest thanks go to everyone who participated in this third annual OZ Big Bang, including authors, artists, betas and cheerleaders, friends and community members. Special thanks to Aletter2elise for our wonderful Big Bang Preview vid! Rustler deserves additional thanks and kudos for providing a unit to house the challenge and for once again designing and producing the site. Our hearts go out to Rustler for her current personal, real life sorrow, and our gratitude for continuing to work on the Bang.

To our prospective readers, thanks to those of you who've encouraged us all while we were putting this together and to those of you who are just now checking us out. We already have plans in the works for next year, and we hope to see new and familiar faces when we throw open the doors for the 2012 round of Boom, Boom, Baby! But for now, check out and enjoy this year's stories and artwork - and don't forget to send feedback to the authors, artists and designers who made it possible!
