    The Ever-Popular Ephemera Reward: A digital copy of Bluecrowne, a handwritten thank you card, and a strange but fascinating bit of ephemera that will surprise and delight you. It could be an antique bicycle horn my weird upstairs neighbor left when he moved out, a stuffed beast I made out of gloves after a hearty pour or two of rye, something from my collection of old travel guides and maps, perhaps a tin that once held old carpet tacks and which would be excellent for your paperclips. Guaranteed to have been lovingly collected and hoarded for a while by yours truly.

I'll provide up to 25 or so paperback copies of the book of your choosing, then I'll visit with your class via Skype (twice? Three times?
