Coming soon: 2006 FRBR Challenge

Categories: 2006 FRBR Challenge

The week after next, on Wednesday 1 March, I’ll announce a contest that will run for two weeks: the 2006 FRBR Challenge. I’ll be posing a task (an enjoyable one, don’t worry) and anyone who enters an answer will have a chance to win a prize. First prize is a Nancy Pearl Librarian Action Figure and a copy of Out On the Rim, by Ross Thomas (40 KB PDF). Second prize is a copy of Gone, No Forwarding by Joe Gores. Thomas and Gores are two of the great crime writers, and two of my all-time favourites. Anyone may enter the Challenge, and winners will be chosen at random.
