Our old pal Dallas Hudgens returns to his short story roots this week over at Five Chapters. We're digging the episodic format that keeps us on the edge of our seat and we eagerly await the next installment—truly a brilliant site. Also, a quick perusal of the archives reveals several HB guestbloggers, including Ben Greenman and Josh Henkin. Go take a look.
So, in honor of Dallas week at 5 Chapters, we're giving away a signed copy of his novel, Season of Gene, here on the blog. Booklist raved over Season of Gene — "Hudgens has scored again. He's given readers an engaging, knowing glimpse of an odd, but no doubt real, world of arrested development. And he knows his baseball."—Kirkus gave it a starred review and PW says: "Those ready for a rowdy ride won't be disappointed."
Entry details: drop us an email, subject line "Book Giveaway," and be sure to include your complete mailing address. We'll take entries until Friday morning, 10AM and then the names go into the sorting hat for selection.
UPDATE: Congratulations to Sanjay Srinivas of Texas who won our last book giveaway: a signed copy of Patricia Cornwall's latest, Book of the Dead.
