We have two winners in the ‘spaminot’ contest from Goreletter 4.01! But one contest still remains open, so subscribe soon and you can still enter.
The “spaminot” contest asked readers to guess which of the following phrases was NOT a real spam header I received: aggressive mannequin, be decomposable, cuddle grime, diabolical meathead, drive by grimace, efficiency nose ring, goth seniority, grandmamma warlock, medication madhouse, open face surgery, sanity immersion, toucan retardation, undeliverable baby. (Can you believe the sick ingenuity of spammers?). The made-up phrase was “diabolical meathead.” Guess I wasn’t so diabolical after all.
Craig Clarke wins 1st prize, nabbing an autographed Advanced Review Copy of my novel, Play Dead, a copy of The Dead Cat Poet Cabal (constructed by Gerard Houarner), a signed Play Dead book jacket, and Horror Library Vol. 1 (edited by RJ Cavender).
Congratulations to Craig and Tracy.
The currently open contest — a subjective draw which invites subscribers to send me a witty interview question for my weblog on amazon.com — will remain open until June 10th, when I pick my favorite question and answer it. To participate, all you need to do is subscribe to the e-mail edition of The Goreletter and follow the directions in the latest issue. The winner will receive a free and highly collectible deck of playing cards with art by Dave Liscomb inspired by my novel, Play Dead!
