Neal Stephenson's Anathem was my favorite book of the fall, and last night I got to see him in person at a local reading. But I'm not the only lucky one. Because his publisher, HarperCollins, sent us several copies to distribute to our readers as we saw fit. Well, I confess that Gene and I saw fit to keep one each. But the rest are for you.
But how to decide? Hmmm. Hmmm. Well, let's make it a contest, shall we? How about the best Haiku about the works of Neal Stephenson. But wait, this blog doesn't have comments. So instead I want you to post your entries on Twitter. Just tweet "@billba #AnathemHaiku " followed by those magic 17 syllables that are your ticket to a free copy of what must be acknowledged as a very long novel indeed. Deadline: midnight Monday September 22 (a week hence). I'll announce the winner on my Twitter feed. Only one entry per person, so make it count!
P.S. Want to see what other people are submitting? Easy. Just follow this link.
