May the spork be with you

Jeremy C. Shipp is a distinguished horror author, whose books include “Cursed”, “Vacation” and “Sheep and Wolves”. He has been nominated for the Bram Stoker Award. He is a friend of yard gnomes and an enemy of attic clowns. He’s rather a quirky fellow.

He also shops at ThinkGeek.com.

ThinkGeek, widely known as being the internet’s pre-eminent purveyor of peculiarities to the nerdy masses, is the home of – among other things – the titanium spork. Mr. Shipp has acquired one of these magnificent pieces of curious cutlery and is offering it as an incentive to his fans.

To win the cherished spork, become a follower of Mr. Shipp’s blog. Yeah, that’s really all there is to it. Easy, right? The winner will receive not only the spork of awesome, but a Kindle or Nook copy of their choice of any of Mr. Shipp’s eBooks. A full list of eligible titles can be found in this post.

The contest will remain open until Mr. Shipp receives his 200th subscriber on the blog.
