The Dark Crystal was a huge part of my childhood and on heavy VHS rotation. Now fans like me who love to write have an opportunity to get published in the form of a contest held by the Jim Henson Company and Penguin Books to write a series of Young Adult novels based on the world of the amazing movie.

The contest was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con and this panel is provided via The Nerdist.
