Want to know more about The God of the Hive? Like, how on earth a person like Robert Goodman came to be? You have a chance to win “Birth of a Green Man,” the illustrated short story about a key moment in Goodman’s history, by sending me the receipt for the book purchased from an independent bookstore.

And may the best Indy customer win!
