Dead fish, free books

Forget those back-to-school sales. Summer’s not over yet. In
Alaska, the silvers are running,
and so is the Ode to a Dead Salmon bad writing contest, sponsored by Running Fox Books.
Judges Ned Rozell and Howard Weaver have narrowed the stinky
field to three finalists, displayed here. Now it’s up to the public to choose
the best of the worst. So don’t delay—click over to the Ode to a Dead Salmon
site and hold your nose as you choose. Voting ends Monday, Aug. 19, with the
winner to be announced on Thursday, Aug. 22.
As a special thanks for your vote—and to anyone else who
sees this post—Running Fox author Deb Vanasse is offering the Kindle edition of her novel Out of the Wilderness free
on Friday, Aug. 16 and Saturday, Aug. 17. Mark your calendars, tell your
friends, and reward yourself with a free book!
