Author Neal Stephenson will beat the Tattered Cover LoDo on Friday
and in advance of that appearance, we'll have a Q&A with him tomorrow. In the meantime, we're giving you a chance to win a copy of the book right now, so you'll be able to have Stephenson sign it. All you need to do is tell us a little story.
Since Reamde is a novel about both a computer virus and a massively multiplayer game (with gold farming!), we'll give you two options for your story line:
Option 1: Tell us about getting a computer virus on your computer and what you think you did to get it. Be honest; we won't judge. Alternately, you can tell us about a virus from which you rescued your parents, or grandparents.

Option 2: Tell us you most embarrassing MMO story.
Leave your story in the comments section below by 5 p.m. Thursday, September 29 (and be sure to include your real e-mail address). We'll announce the winner Friday morning -- giving you time to swing by the Westword offices and pick up your copy before Stephenson's reading that night.
