Giveaway! Short Story Collection (#7)

I'm going to come clean. This contest exists solely so I could feature "Zombie Raccoons and Killer Bunnies." You look at that cover and tell me you could resist? Thanks to Penguin Books I have the following collection of short stories to giveaway to one lucky winner (you know you want to read about killer bunnies...) To enter, just leave your information in the form below (all information is guaranteed confidential and will be discarded after the contest ends) and I will randomly pick a winner by Friday October 30th. No multiple entries please. Open everywhere. Good luck! Zombie Raccoons and Killer Bunnies Edited by Martin H. Greenberg and Kerrie Hughes From a farmer at war with Nature's creatures, to dangerous doings when the henhouse goes on-line, to the hazards of keeping company with a book wyrm, here are ingenious tales that will make readers laugh or cry-or double-check to make sure that their windows and doors are firmly locked against the things that prowl the night. Intelligent Design by Denise Little (Editor) These ten original stories explore one of the most heatedly debated topics today. From a tale that examines whether life on Earth is an out-of-control science project, to one which reveals which species will inherit the planet, to a portrait of a scientist determined to discover the truth about God, the stories in this anthology tackle the big questions in ways that range from startling to satirical—and are always entertaining. The Trouble With Heroes Edited by Denise Little These 22 all-new tales pay tribute to the true heroes-the people who enable and put up with heroes. From what it's like to be Hercules' wife (complete with an appearance by Hercules in drag) to the trials of H.P. Lovecraft's housekeeper, from the perils of being King Kong's girlfriend to the downside of dating a shapeshifter, this anthology turns heroism on its head, revealing the behind-the-scenes drama, as opposed to glorious rescues. From the Pied Piper's power trip to David acting like a giant you-know-what after slaying Goliath, these stories show heroes in all their ignominy and shine a light on the unsung faithful standing in their shadows. **Contest Closed**

Oooh i just entered, the prizes are brilliant.

I might have missed it, but is this open to non-US?

Ack! You did it! I had told myself not to enter any give away, but how can I resist 'Zombie Raccoons and Killer Bunnies'
Even if I don't win: this one is going on my list of must have books!

I just entered and totally agree
'Zombie Raccoons and Killer Bunnies' is reason enough to enter and if I don't win it will be added to my must buy book list.
So awesome.

Sullivan-- Put an entry in without your address if it makes you uncomfortable. I like the address because I've had too many people not get back to me and I like to be able to ship immediately.

Jessica-- the cover sold me.

SQT - Thanks, but I did enter my address. I should probably make 'not being so paranoid' a new year's resolution ;-)
