Congrats to Laurie Bland, the winner of my first ever giveaway!
Laurie was one of 28 entrants trying to win a copy of Ellen Datlow’s anthology Supernatural Noir. Each entrant was asked to leave a comment naming their favorite Ellen Datlow anthology, and as you can imagine, the votes were all over the map of Ellen’s career.
Laurie’s favorite anthology at the moment is TEETH, one of the four anthologies Ellen has published in 2011.
How did I choose the winner? Well, since I’m in a hotel room south of Indianapolis for work at the moment, I wrote down all of the entrants’ names, folded them in half, tossed them in the ice bucket, shook it vigorously, and then reached in and pulled a name out. Nice and simple. I’ll be mailing Laurie’s copy of Supernatural Noir when I get home to NJ over the weekend.
Thanks again to all who entered! I had so much fun with this that I might need to ask future interview subjects if they have anything they’d like to give away!
