The Mary Sue

Greetings, Mary Sue readers! We would like to get to know you!

Well, we’d like to think we already do, but it never hurts to get friendlier. So what is a website to do? Host a reader survey of course! Read on to find out all the details and how you could win a wonderful prize package for participating. 

First things firstClick here to take survey. It’s completely painless and perhaps even a wee bit entertaining.

Second: Sit and wait to see if you’re the lucky winner. You can choose to do anything at this point, reread Harry Potter, cross your fingers for luck, debate Star Wars versus Star Trek, whatever!

Third: You win or you die. Ok, you won’t die, you’ll just lose but we couldn’t resist the Game of Thrones quote.

Now for the fun part, what you will win. One (1) winner will receive:

  • $100 Visa Cash Card
  • Copy of AMULET Book Four: The Last Council
  • Plus the first 3 books in the series
  • The Mary Sue staff’s many thanks

Amulet: The Last Council is the continuation of Kazu Kibuishi’s New York Times bestselling series. “Emily and her friends think they’ll find the help they need in Cielis, but something isn’t right. Streets that were once busy are deserted, and the townspeople who are left live in fear. Emily is soon escorted to the Academy, where she’s expected to compete for a spot on the Guardian Coucil, a group of the most powerful Stonekeepers. But as the number of competitors gets smaller and smaller, an awful secret is slowly uncovered – a secret that, if left buried, means the certain destruction of everything Emily fights for.”

You can find out more about Amulet and it’s creator Kazu Kibuishi at In fact, here’s the book trailer!

On a purely personal note, we can definitely recommend Amulet as a young adult series that grown ups will love looking at too.

So what are you waiting for?  Click here to take survey and you’re automatically entered to win the prize package! You have until Monday November 14, 2011 at 6 p.m. EST. Go!

Editor’s Note: The non-inclusive wording of the gender identification question has been changed. The delay in the edit was a matter of the survey going up Monday night, us realizing that the question was phrased wrong on Tuesday morning, and then having to talk to our ad team, who are most interested in the data, to make sure we could reword the question without invalidating the data already collected. Hopefully the new wording better communicates our feelings about trans inclusion in our community, and needless to say, thanks to our community for pointing it out to us.
