THE LAST GREAT AMERICAN BEAUTY PAGEANT
Short Fiction
by Denise Dietz

What happens when a sleazy promoter blackmails a network CEO into televising a male beauty pageant a la Miss Whomever? What if the pageant is hosted by a horror-film actress who looks like "Little Orphan Annie during a menopausal heat flash"? What if the music for the pageant is provided by a rock group whose guitarist died on stage of a drug overdose, and the promoter's pretty assistant has an agenda all her own? What if Mr. Colorado sleeps with a knife on his bed stand ... the same knife he plans to use in the pageant's talent competition?

Mix all of the above ingredients together, season with a few celebrity judges, add a dash of black humor and a twist ending, and you get the quintessential reality show ... live! Or maybe not.

When it comes to short fiction, Denise Dietz has been compared to Ira Levin and Bruce Jay Friedman. She enjoys feedback from her readers and can be reached via her website: www.denisedietz.com
