Winners of the "What should David take to Mars" contest

The votes are in and the winner of the What should David take to "Mars" contest is papersky, with "something Kate has knitted." I will be taking a scarf, at least one hat, and a sweater if she can finish it in time. (!!!suspense!!!) papersky will receive a signed copy of Space Magic and a genuine simulated-Mars rock, as soon as I return safely to Earth.

Second place is nebula5 with "duct tape." I will be taking a small roll of the stuff. nebula5 gets a rock a signed copy of Hitting the Skids in Pixeltown, containing my story "Ukaliq and the Great Hunt" which is set on Mars.

I will also be taking twine (janetl), a towel (apparentparadox), a needle (scarlettina), a copy of Space Magic to be signed by the crew (allanh), a small collection of safety pins (nancymcc), my geeky antique calculator watch (kateyule), and a knife (spencimusprime). They will receive the satisfaction of knowing that their suggestions may save the Earth from Martian invasion.

Thanks, everyone, for playing!

I leave day after tomorrow. (Aiee!) Packing today.
