It's a radical information dissemination idea - words printed on thin sheets of paper and glued together. It's called a book, and you too can own one.

The tome up for grabs is The New English Library book of Internet Stories. It contains tales of shagging, murder, some clever sci-fi Net stuff and a few homages to Tales of the Unexpected.

As Rob 'The Pond*' Blincoe, recently reported, his big bruv Nick has a story in the collection. Attached to the article is a full transcript of Matt Whyman's Crusoe.com, the story which kicks off the book, if you fancy a taster.

We have ten copies of the The New English Library book of Internet Stories to give away. All you have to do is outline your ideal Internet story in 30 words or less. The prizes will go to the ten most original or amusing entries. Closing date is 5.00pm GMT on Friday 17th November. E-mail your entries to us here.

*Rob's nickname comes from his extravagant mosaic-lined floodlit garden water feature. Unfortunately, and despite the attentions of the country's top pond experts, it hasn't held water since the day it was built. The wife is not happy. ®
