* Ashley Arnold's "Gernsback's Monkeys" (flash fiction, humor)

Genetically engineered monkey slaves of Mr Gernsback wish freedom.

Story itself appears to be a take on Hugo Gernsback, the famous founder of one of the earliest sf pulp magazines (Amazing). Or may be a satire of all sf authors.

Note: Hugo Awards are named after Hugo Gernsback.
