A post from Shady Characters

And the winners are…

…Paul Carvill (@paulcarvill) and John Stuart (@biostuart)! Congratulations to them both. Paul and John’s names were picked at random from the set of all commenters on the original competition post, plus all those who replied to, retweeted, or marked as favourite the tweet announcing the contest.* Their copies of the UK edition of Shady Characters will be on their way very soon.

The response to this competition was huge — 143 entries! — and I really appreciate all the lovely comments and tweets you posted in order to take part. Commiserations if you did not win, but thanks again for entering!

In more detail: I arranged the names of all entrants in a text file, then used random.org to pick two numbers between 1 and the total number of lines in that file.

      Hi Alberte — thanks for taking part, nevertheless. Maybe next time!
