A member of the Rocinante’s crew has been following @abrahamhanover for a while now.  The first three people to tweet that person’s hometown to that person’s twitter account will get a copy of Caliban’s War, signed by the two of us. Once we select the winners, we’ll tell them to email mailing addresses to us.  I’ll post the winner list here, too. This is my first time doing a giveaway like this, so be patient if there are glitches.

I look very Metallica in this interview, Daniel looks very Simply Red.  This was not on purpose.
