Check the list below to find out if you're a winner, and then come on back to the top for the methodology and instructions for collecting your code.
The Methodology: The names of all contestants were written on slips of paper, which were folded and placed into a Duro 6 brown paper bag, manufactured on Jul 26 14, serial number EL 26 B. The open top edge of the paper bag was folded over, twice, and vigorously shaken. Trooper then rubbed his cheek over the bag's exterior, for luck.
Famous SciFi Author Steve Miller, dressed in a glittery red sequined dress, with matching red high heels then tantalizingly withdrew ten slips of paper from the bag, reading each name in a sultry, yet innocent, voice, much to the approval of Sprite, who was watching from her perch on the file cabinet.
I took those ten slips of paper and compiled the list below.

EDITED TO ADD: One lucky winner had forgotten, in her enthusiasm, that she already owned a copy of Carousel Sun. She has asked that her code be given to someone else. Sprite was pressed into service and pulled one! more! slip of paper from the paper bag, and the name of the new winner has been added to the list below.
