Congratulations to Ken Liu for winning a subscription to The Sun! Next month, I plan to give away a subscription to Rosebud, which holds a special place in my heart as the first literary magazine to which I subscribed. I’ve been a subscriber since issue 23, when Joe R. Lansdale’s “Bob the Dinosaur Goes to Disneyland” caused me to pull out my checkbook and instantly subscribe (alert readers will notice the dinosaur theme). Rosebud includes great literary fiction of a variety of genres, as well as poetry, and the comics of R. Crumb.
To enter to win the subscription, leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. E.T. Monday, August 17, 2009. I’ll randomly select a winner from the list at that time. U.S. only, I’m afraid, and the previous winner will be disqualified so I can spread the love. Good luck, and I’ll be plugging this throughout the month.
