Contest: 300 or "Madness? This is ANTSS Tricentpostiary."

This is the 300th post on And Now the Screaming Starts. To celebrate, I'm going to give away a free copy of the Mammoth Book of Best Horror Comics as reviewed in this very blog.

"Holy Sister Carmen Lupita Herrera Villanueva de la Vega Campuzano and her 1,000 yapping zombie Pomeranians! A free book! How can I ensure that I am the person who receives said book?"

Well, dearest reader, I'm glad you asked. There will be a contest!

"A contest!"

Yes, a contest.

"That's great. I love contests."

I know. We all do. Now please stop interrupting.

Here's how you enter:
1) Write a limerick describing the plot of a horror movie. Any horror film that inspires you is fair game.
2) Email said limerick along with your name and mailing address to me at crwm44(at)yahoo(dot)com. Just type your limerick(s) in the body of the email.

You can send as many limericks as you please. The deadline for limericks will be one week from today: Wednesday the 16th. I'll announce the winner the day after the deadline.

Millions will enter, millions minus one will lose! And one will win!

Before we all rush to our quills and writing desks, I'd like to take the chance to thank everybody who has indulged me in this blog-habit of mine. I'd like to give a special shout out to the original group of readers who were early adopters of this thing: Dave, Spacejack, Sassy, Cattleworks, and Mermaid Heather. I'd like to thank all the members of the League of Tana Tea Drinkers for adding me to their ever-growing roll of awesomeness. And I'd like to thank my wife, who absolutely hates horror movies, but puts up with me anyway – thanks babe.

Thanks to this blog I picked up Dan Simmons' 'The Terror' which may easily become one of my top five favorite books ever. Thank you for your wide ranging blog.

I'm glad you dug Simmons' book and thanks for dropping with the kind words.

Congratulations on the stupendousness and the achievement of said stupendousness!*
The picture is awesome, after I discovered the reason for the picture, you wily, groan-inducing dog, ya!

But (meanwhile), I already OWN that damn book, ya Screamin' mug!

But, being a sucker for limericks AND the object for the contest, I'm just gonna enter for personal satisfaction, if you don't mind...

And keep on Screamin' on!

* The first "stupendousness" refers to bloggal (uh...) QUALITY and the second "stupendousness" refers to bloggal (no, seriously, er...) QUANTITY.

I promise that my limerick will be even more groan-inducing than your selection of the picture for this article.
