I just found a new blog called Pat's Fantasy Hotlist. The reason I mention it is because he regularly lists contests for free books. I sent an email hoping to get some books, but thought I'd point the rest of you over so you could have a chance to get some free stuff too! Good luck. I also got another email regarding the TV show Heroes. If you're interested, check out the rest of this post.... --NBC is hosting an interactive alternate-reality game for Heroes on http://www.samantha48616e61.com/, and the latest installment should be going up by the end of the day today. The game involves investigating Primatech Paper and Mr. Bennett, and the URL above is the blog for Hana (the character who can sense the Internet with her mind). --NBC tells me that, instead of offering only that week’s episode through NBC Rewind (http://www.nbc.com/Video/rewind/full_episodes/heroes.shtml) after Chapter 19 airs, they’re going to offer the previous 5 episodes, so that’s even more time to catch up. --And finally, NBC is also offering for download on their site a “Countdown Clock,” which sits on your desktop and counts down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until Chapter 19 finally airs. You and your readers can pick it up here: http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/downloads/. There’s a version for Mac and Windows, the Windows version requires the Yahoo Widget Engine, the Mac version requires OS X 10.4.
