While this isn't the contest news some are waiting for: a new mini-contest!

I’m not the only one who has been amused by John Scalzi’s blurb for Sam Sykes just released book BLACK HALO. The blurb reads: “I do not wish Sam Sykes Dead.” High praise, indeed! Still, it leaves me wanting more. So: a weeklong mini-contest!

HOW TO ENTER AND WHAT: Either comment here, on the relevant post on Bull Spec’s Facebook Page, or reply to the relevant tweet from @bullspec on Twitter, with an even better backhanded evil blurb than Scalzi’s. OK, I know, that’s impossible. Just do the best you can. The winner will receive — well, it makes sense, doesn’t it — a copy of BLACK HALO. (The one pictured below to be precise. Only with less camera flash reflecting off of it.)

ELIGIBILITY: The book will be sent only to folks who can receive USPS media or flate rate (US postage) mail. So: US (yes, Hawaii and Alaska), US territories, etc. If you’re outside this area please do enter anyway, because, well, it’s fun and you might still win. I’ll just only be able to send the book to the US mailing address of your choice. Hey. Worldwide postage ain’t free.

DEADLINE: I’ll round up the submissions next Friday, April 1. I can totally see the winning entries sounding like April Fool’s jokes already…

UPDATE: Winner is posted here.
