Okay the contest is finally lurching forward.
Here's the link: http://indieclick.com/contests/onlyrevolutions/
February 14, 2007 is the deadline.
During his ONLY REVOLUTIONS book tour, Mark Z. Danielewski was struck by the enthusiasm he encountered. But spirit wasn't the only thing fans showed up with. Many approached the author and showed him their own creative works inspired by ONLY REVOLUTIONS and HOUSE OF LEAVES. Drawings of the characters in OR, academic theses about HOL, and more have started to appear on the forums. (One man dropped his drawers, but we believe this was a random act and not a piece of performance art.) This outpouring of creativity has inspired the ONLY REVOLUTIONS CONTEST. Read on to find out how you can win signed copies of all his books, a chance to have your own words or images featured on the author's official website, and possibly even see it featured in the paperback edition of OR.
