Win a book edited by John Scalzi

On June 8 Tor will be releasing Metatropolis, a collection of short stories edited by no other than author John Scalzi. The gist of this collection are tales of a future without oil. In honor of this upcoming book, Scalzi and the other writers involved with Metatropolis are having contests.

Which means you have a chance to win this new book. Actually, you have five chances, one chance at five different websites. If you'd like to take part in these contests, check out the sites for:
John Scalzi
Jay Lake
Tobias Buckell
Elizabeth Bear
Karl Schroeder

Each contest is different, so have fun with it. Keep in mind the contests end at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on June 7, so get to it.

The contest at Scalzi's site includes writing up to three haiku about a future with no oil or nearly without oil. Below are my submissions to Scalzi's blog.

We worship the sun
Wind drives our lingering souls
Children of fossils

Burning dinosaurs
Forgotten baptism of oil
Engines thirst for god

Cannons fall silent
Tanks roll the deserts no more
Still, we pray for rain
