You say you’ve wanted to contribute to the Alternate Reality News Service ever since you first heard of it at the beginning of this sentence, but you didn’t know how? Well, thanks to the Grasping for the Wind Web site and the Alternate Reality News Service Café, your recently realized long-held dream can become a reality! And, you can win free stuff, too!
The Alternate Reality News Service features two advice columns, Ask Amritsar and Ask the Tech Answer Guy. Simply think up a question for either of the columns, go to the Alternate Reality News Service Café and post it in the appropriate forum. The three best questions submitted before September 18, 2010 will win an autographed copy of What Were Once Miracles Are Now Children’s Toys. Winners will be notified through Facebook.
Easy as riding a Cyrillian Hump-backed tortoise when the twin moons of Fendor are full! Okay, umm, actually, that isn’t very easy. Not easy at all. In fact, there are only three people in the known universe who can do it, and they all have eight thumbs. SUBMITTING AN ENTRY TO THIS CONTEST IS EASIER THAN RIDING A CYRILLIAN HUMP-BACKED TORTOISE!
You say you’ve never read an Ask Amritsar or Ask the Tech Answer Guy column? Fear not, young Alternaut! “Ask Amritsar: Soul Mates on a Molecular Level” and “Ask the Tech Answer Guy” have been reprinted on the Grasping for the Wind Web site for your convenience!
