Contest - Win Peter Straub's New Novel "A Dark Matter" and Emma Straub's Novella "Fly-Over State"

This week history was made in the Book Notes series. When I posted Peter Straub's music playlist for his new novel, A Dark Matter, he joined his daughter Emma Straub (who contributed an essay for her novella Fly-Over State last year) as the first father and child in the feature. These two talented writers join brothers Austin and Lev Grossman as the only other set of immediate family members to participate in the Book Notes series.

To honor this event, I am giving away a copy of both A Dark Matter and Fly-Over State to one lucky winner, along with an assortment of books and CDs.

To enter the contest, leave a comment in this post with the name of your favorite famous (or infamous) parent-child combination.

The winner will receive the following prizes:

Peter Straub's novel A Dark Matter
Emma Straub's novella Fly-Over State
an assortment of books & CDs

The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight CT Friday evening (February 19th).
