Greetings Spy Vibers! The essentials from my glass lair are packed and I'm heading off to Pulpfest and all points east. While I'm away on the mission readers have a chance to win some cool prizes! All you have to do is send an e-mail to spy vibe[at]gmail.com with the prize title in the subject heading and your name and address. I will choose winners in a random drawing on August 16th. You can enter for more than one prize, but each entry must be a separate e-mail. Good luck! Prizes listed below.

Pulpfest will be an immersion into the world of classic and modern popular fiction, cliffhanger serials, radio shows, and old books and comics. I will try to post some images from the field!
