When I interviewed Ernest Cline about his forthcoming novel Ready Player One, a few people rightfully complained that they did not want to hear about a book that wouldn't be available until August. I apologize for writing about the book so many months before it comes out. But like I said, I have not been this entertained and impressed with a science fiction novel for a decade or so.
For those who don't want to wait to read this terrific novel, I have good news. Crown publishers sent me 10 advance reader's copies of Ready Player One and I'm holding a contest to give away these advance reader's copies.
Here's how to enter:
1. Follow @gweekpodcast at Twitter.com
2. Tweet this: "I entered Boing Boing's Gweek contest for a copy of Ready Player One. To enter follow @gweekpodcast & retweet. gweek.net"
(Please don't tweet it more than once.)
I'll pick ten followers at random to receive the books. The contest ends at 6pm Pacific time on Friday, May 13, 2011. Good luck!
