You are correct that a snail is a small creature with an external spiral shell (Photo). The word also has a meaning of "a slow-moving or sluggish person or thing" because snails move very slowly. The term "snail mail" is a slang term for postal mail because it is so much slower then e-mail. So Dirk is asking you to e-mail him your postal mailing address.

And congratulations on winning. I too am excited about winning and look forward to reading the book.
