I’m not at ICFA, where all the cool people in the field gather every March; finances and circumstances didn’t permit, this year. Instead, I’m sitting at home posting blinks.
The VanderMeer giveaway contest seems to be stalled; no new submissions in almost 48 hours now, and of the 20 or so received thus far, only 8 have provided a complete set of correct answers. Was the quiz too hard, then? Or do most Locus Online readers already have the book? Anyway, per the initially announced conditions, the contest will remain open for a week, and if there aren’t 10 complete sets of correct answers, then the nearest runners-up will get the remaining copies.
PS– I see now that the post I attempted last night, which seemed to fail 3 times, in fact got posted 3 times. I’ve deleted two of them. Sorry for the redundancy.
