Contest - Win Karen Thompson Walker's Novel The Age of Miracles and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate
The impending hurricane off the east coast, and specifically its press coverage, has me thinking of dystopian fiction, and my favorite dystopian novel of the year is easily Karen Thompson Walker's The Age of Miracles.
To enter this week's contest, leave a comment with the name the best dystopian novel or story that you have ever read for a chance to win this book and a $100 Threadless gift certificate. If you would rather, feel free to share a book that you would choose to read to ride out a hurricane instead.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Karen Thompson Walker's novel, The Age of Miracles
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like Storytellers, The Best Channels Since 1465, Fahrenheit 451, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, and music-related t-shirts like Death Note, Funkalicious, Music Snob, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already have the book or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for the book.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (November 2nd)
