LARCHMONT, N.Y. (AP) -- Imagine this: Bill Clinton is frightened out of Chappaqua by the Headless Horsewoman, then returns years later to find his wife is president and has married Elvis Presley.
No? Would you believe Bill becomes a preacher? Crashes a party at Westchester County's only trailer park?
Never mind. It's all fiction, plot twists among the entries in a short story contest sponsored by the local magazine, the Westchester Wag. The contest, ''Bill and Hillary: The New York Years,'' invited readers to imagine the former first family's future.
The winner, to be announced in the July 16 issue of the Wag, gets $500. Publisher Mary Ann Liebert said Tuesday that there were more than 200 entries, some from as far away as New Zealand.
They were not, by and large, written by fans.
''They were quite uniformly negative, not just about Bill but Hillary too,'' Liebert said.
''I was quite surprised because you don't get that sense in Westchester really, but I guess those who were motivated to write felt strongly about it.''
The Duchess of York shows up in one story, where she talks to Al Gore about Weight Watchers at Chelsea Clinton's wedding. In another, she is the object of Bill Clinton's affections during a game of pool in his den.
