Let me be the judge of that. You should enter this contest because I'm harsh and Les Figues rocks.
We are now accepting submissions for the Second Annual Les Figues NOS Book Contest. All entrants receive a TrenchArt Series title of choice. Deadline: September 15, 2012.
2012 Les Figues Press NOS Book Contest—
