Cool Author News, Plus a Contest

A couple of authors have had some cool news, which I thought I'd share.

David Anthony Durham has received a certain very exciting item in the mail. Suffice it to say, such an item is probably big on the list of the dreams of novelists everywhere, both published and not. What on earth is it? Read on and find out!

Lisa Shearin has gotten an offer--but it's not for a book. But it's still a cool writing gig. Read about it here.

Patrick Rothfuss has met a rather unusual requirement for manhood. By his definition, most of the grown up males of our species are not, in fact, men. Here's his rather strict criteria.

Name That Droid!

Want to name a robot? Angry Robot has a mascot that looks . . . well, like a robot. When you look at this robot, does a name just jump right out at you?

If it does, you can win us both some free stuff. The namer of the robot--personally, I think it looks like a possessed helm--gets the first seven (7) books put out by Angry Robot. And I will get . . . well, I don't know. But it's supposed to be cool.

Here is the contest form with all the details. Don't forget to put this site (http://fantasydebut.blogspot.com) in the appropriate spot on the form! You wouldn't want me to miss out on a prize, would you?
