Okay, so I have some copies of the ARC for By the Mountain Bound here, which I need to give away. First one goes to the person who suggests the best SFF-related song (mainstream music, not filk, please). By "best," I mean the one that makes me go "OH AWESOME I FORGOT THAT EXISTED." Nominations close at midnight tomorrow; all decisions of the judges (me) are final. Honorable Mention prizes may be awarded at my discretion.

Go!

I have a list of my own I want to talk about, but it never hurts to go looking for reminders.
