The copies of MAVERICK WRITERS have been awarded, and also two, um, booby prizes.  

Okay, three, count ’em, three winners.
Sylvia for the Plath/Roddenberry mind-meld, which made me laugh out loud;
Suzanna for Lahiri and Eugenidesm who I actually think would kill each other;
and fairyhedgehog for the tag team of Clarke and Atwood.
Usman and Rachel, you each get a signed copy of THE QUEEN OF PATPONG.
I NEED MAILING ADDRESSES FROM ALL OF YOU.  (Am I shouting?)  Even if you think I have it, even if you KNOW you sent it to me earlier, I need them.
Please send them to thallinan@gmail.com

And congratulations to all our fine contestants.  Let’s give ’em a hand, shall we?  (Applause.)

    Yes, yes, YES! Thanks, Tim. I can’t wait to read this story.

  2. fairyhedgehog Says:

    Thank you so much!

  3. Sylvia Says:

    Hurray! I liked all the combinations, actually. I’d like to read those books!

    (my word verification is “choppiest friend” which is somewhat disconcerting)

  4. fairyhedgehog Says:

    And congrats to all the winners!

  5. Suzanna Says:

    Thanks for the book!

  6. Usman Says:

    What, I won a book, and that too yours. WOW. I’ve been dying to read your books Tim. And please sign it.
    Thanks a lot.
    And Tim I am restarting my blog. Just getting myself into shape and retuning the blog.
    Congrats to all the winners.

    PS: booby prizes? That gives me a pause 😉

    It’s not a booby prize, Usman, it’s a bonus prize for the specially gifted. Rachel is a rising mystery novelist and you soon will be.

    (Now I don’t want to get a bunch of passive-aggressive resentment from the rest of you who won the original prize. That’s a great book.)

    Thanks Tim. You’re my biggest fan have always encouraged me the most. It means a lot.
