The Night Circus Giveaway!

It's that time again!

Our friend Erin Morgenstern just published her first novel, the mind-bogglingly successful The Night Circus and to celebrate, we're going to give away an autographed copy in the time honored tradition of this blog: a flash fanfic contest!

To win this lovely book (and read it before you're the last person left alive on Earth who has not) just write a story (350 words max) that contains Roswell and any mixture of the following:

a) The most amazing circus you've ever seen -- a maze of magical tents only open from dusk till dawn.

b) A mysterious wager between two shadowy, ancient wizards.

c) Two young magicians, pitted against one another by their trainers, but inescapably falling in love.

d) A clockmaker who's designs are so spectacular and unexpected they seem to be alive.

e) Tumblers, kitten trainers, tattooed contortionists, trapeze artists, red headed twins.

f) Europe and America in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

g) A strange cabal of people who never seem to age.

Post your story here, in the comments to this post.

Contest ends Monday January 16th 2012 midnight EST. Entries will be judged by Erin herself.
