The Winner of the “Obit” ARC Contest

First: Which Beatles song was I thinking of? If you want to hear me sing it, here it is:

If you’d rather hear the Beatles sing it (which, to be fair, is probably the better choice) it’s here:

And for those of you who don’t wish to hear either version (or can’t, for whatever reason): It’s “I’ve Just Seen a Face.”

There were three of you who correctly picked the tune I was thinking of, and of the three, my random number generator (“Alexa, pick a number between one and three”) picked “one” and so the winner is Maudie,¬†who was the first to suggest it.¬†Congratulations, Maudie!

Remember that the signed limited hardcover of Don’t Live For Your Obituary is now available for pre-order from Subterranean Press. There will also be an eBook edition, but it’s not available for pre-order yet.

Thank you to everyone who entered! This was a fun one.

    Scalzi, 2007: Athena, pick a number between one and three.
    Scalzi, 2017: Alexa, pick a number between one and three.

    The times, they are a changin’….

  2. Also big on Beatles. I’ve just seen a face is an “up” tune — a good one to get lots of work done by. Pre-ordered and looking forward.

  3. Shouldn’t “two” have been Alexa’s only possible choice? This whole thing’s rigged!

  4. Oh man! I was one of the other two who guessed it but didn’t win. Ah well. Guess I’ll just have to buy it then. Congratulations, Maudie!

  5. Actually, that’s not a bad cover you did- you even sound a bit like John Lennon.

  6. Scalzi 2027: Scamperbeasts, pick a number between 1 and 3.

    After the implants they can speak and understand English and do complex math. But they are still cats.
