In the olden days, they'd put all the entry cards into a basket, or a big metal thing that you spun around to shuffle them all, and then draw one out at random... How do you do a drawing of digital entries? I suppose you just tell your computer to select an entry randomly, but... it doesn't feel the same, somehow.

@Dutch Weismann that word Word spacing issue is via Tor.coms formating around the book cover, so its this blog that did that not the book. I have found it happens on this blog some times but never shows up in the printed books .
