Contest Winner!

Thanks everyone for the many interesting entries in the contest to win The Rough Guide to the Universe. Here's how it went:

Third Place: "The Universe is a very short poem." Very clever. And linguistically not incorrect.

Second Place: "The Universe is ribbed for your pleasure." This one cracks me up because, aside from comparing the universe to a condom, it's also not entirely far from the truth: Thanks to quantum irregularities during early expansion of the universe, the universe's matter distribution is, if not actually ribbed, certainly a little lumpy. However, it's not likely that was done for our pleasure. Even so.

First Place: "The Universe is... the beta-test version of the biverse." This would explain all too much about the way things are.

So, Sharon, e-mail me your address and I'll send out a copy.

For everyone else, remember that I have at two more books coming out this year. We'll be playing again.

I'm shocked, shocked to learn that I did not win. Alright, given who I am, it's hard to be shocked about anything. You watch though, I'll win the next one, so help me me.
