Man, that was cold.  It’s like those vampires didn’t even care or anything.

Okay, the contest this week. After escaping the vampires of Drytown, Collins and the luckless driver make it to Cedar Creek.  Collins is offered a drink when the dust settles.  What does he want to drink?  Protip: you can find the answer on this page. Send mail to me, that’s strangeways@highway-62.com and put “Murder Moon Contest” in the subjectline (hopefully the link does this for you already). Put the answer in the body of the message. Do this before midnight on Thursday. Then you’ll be entered in this week’s drawing. Winners announced on Friday.

If you want to catch up on the whole story, hit the archive page.

There’s some changes on the horizon for THE THIRSTY here.  One of them will very likely lead to a slowed publication schedule.  I’m not particularly pleased about it, but I can say that the updates will stay regular this way.  After Chapter 3 finishes, there’ll be two updates a week and a third bonus feature on Fridays (which will also lead to the announcement of the MURDER MOON winner for the week as well.)  There’s many other exciting developments that I can’t discuss yet, but let’s just say that I’ve seen what might be a little piece of the future, and it looks very promising (and very cool.)

See you on Friday.

Gaaah!  This is what happens when you have to pack the family off and get ready for an upcoming comic show at the same time.  Apologies for the tardiness.

Stick around until the end of the post to divine the winner of this week’s MURDER MOON giveaway.

Welp, looks like the Sheriff got his.  Maybe things’ll come together after all.

Okay, the winner of this week’s contest is….drumroll please…

John Gorenfeld, raconteur and all around swell guy.  Give John a big hand, everybody.  Come back next Wednesday to get in on the next giveaway.  But a new page goes up on Monday at 1pm (not 2).

As usual, if you want to catch up on the story, hit the archives right here.

See you all after the San Jose Super-Con, which is in beautiful downtown San Jose this weekend.  I’ll be there with plenty of books for sale and an advance look at the rest of chapter 3 of THE THIRSTY.  And Five-Minute Stories!  And bon mots!  See you there.

Uh oh.  Looks like the Sheriff been pushed about as far as he’s gonna go.  Gone and done something rash, that boy has.

Okay, the contest this week.  Early in the story, a stagecoach took a detour through Drytown.  Nobody made it out alive.  The driver wanted to get himself a hundred dollar bonus and everyone got turned into vampire chow because of it.  What was the driver’s name?  Protip: you can find the answer on this page.  Send mail to me, that’s strangeways@highway-62.com and put “Murder Moon Contest” in the subjectline (hopefully the link does this for you already).  Put the answer in the body of the message.  Do this before midnight on Thursday.  Then you’ll be entered in this week’s drawing.  Winners announced on Friday.

If you want to catch up on the whole story, hit the archive page.

Once again, I’ll be a the San Jose Super-Con all this weekend.  Stop by and say hello.

See you on Friday.

New Yorker holds a ‘Tilley’ of a contest

Eustace Tilly

Eustace Tilley

See what I did there? I made a pun! I’m so clever and sassy.

Anyway, The New Yorker magazine (and Web site) have announced their second annual Eustace Tilley contest. Perhaps you remember the first one. Perhaps not. Either way, let me remind you of what it all entails:

Eustace Tilley was drawn by Rea Irvin, the magazine’s first art editor, for the cover of the first issue of The New Yorker, in 1925, and has returned for nearly every anniversary issue since. (Louis Menand gives a detailed history of Tilley.) For the past two decades, the magazine has invited contributing artists to reinterpret this iconic dandy, and last year readers contributed to the 2008 Eustace Tilley Contest.

Create your own Eustace Tilley by January 15, 2009, for a chance to win and be featured in an online slide show curated by The New Yorkers art editor, Françoise Mouly.

All entries must be received by Jan. 15 (i.e. a week from Thursday). Winners will be announced with the release of the anniversary issue on Feb. 2. You can see who’s entered the contest so far here, and view a slide show of some of last year’s winners here. Keep in mind that, if I’m reading the rules right, the magazine owns your art if you do submit.

(Thanks to Bill Kartalopoulos for the link. By the way, when are you going to update your blog again Bill?)
