Anathem Giveaway Winners

Now that I'm back home, I finally have time to peruse the many dozens of fine poem entries we got for the Anathem Giveaway Contest. Each wins a copy of Neal Stephensons Anathem, courtesy of HarperCollins Publishing. Click on their Twitter alias to read their winning haiku!

  • NemaVeze tweeted this concise summary of Cryptonomicon
  • MsMollyD gives us a lovely in-joke filled ode to Neal's Baroque Cycle, with a nod to The Big Lebowski
  • And iphoneideas conveys perfectly the ecstasy and the agony of finding out about a new Neal Stephenson book before it's available.

If you're one of the above, claim your prize by sending me a direct message on Twitter (just tweet beginning "d billba") with your name and mailing address. And if you're not, thanks for your contribution and we'll do more giveaways soon!
