Trick question: it's my card. My author trading card from Walter Day's science fiction collection, to be precise. Huge thanks to Mr. Day for creating these cards (which I've been lowkey obsessing about for years now), and special thanks to my friend Cat Rambo who recommended me for inclusion in this historical archive! (Speaking of Cat, check out her latest book, You Sexy Thing, described as "Farscape meets The Great British Bake-Off.")
ANYWAY. As you can see above, I've now got quite a few of these professionally printed collector's items burning a hole in my... office space, and given the dearth of in-person event opportunities these days, I'm going to run a giveaway here for you lucky people! Here's the deal:
Anyone who completes this form during the month of January, 2022, will receive an autographed trading card in the mail. I'll pay postage costs to anywhere in the world and confirm by email when it's sent. Please be patient! Your card will also arrive with instructions for a follow-up activity (totally optional, just for fun).
This is a limited time offer, as I'm hoping I'll soon have more chances to foist these objects on unsuspecting passersby in person. But hey, you opted in to this newsletter, so you might actually want one of these bad boys. Push the button, <<First Name>>!
(Fair warning: the book titles above link to Libro.fm, where you can shop online while also supporting your local bookstore; and everything else is a possibly relevant but definitely amusing YouTube video.)

This music video is perhaps the only thing that Ursula K. Le Guin and Oscar Hammerstein II have in common. Make me a liar, Fish.
