Time for another competition!

Deborah Harkness debut novel A Discovery of WitchesWe have a signed copy of Deborah Harkness debut novel A Discovery of Witches to give away. This book has been much talked about as a grown-up Twilight or Harry Potter. Throw in a dash of the Da Vinci Code and you've got a very exciting read!

The signed copies of The Crippled God goes to the winners: Johan G and Andreas A!!

Messrs H and Anglemark who did not win but did manage to figure out the correct answer without clues are given special kudos and 10% off at a purchase of their choice. Just say the code word (the name of the Douglas Adams character played by Richard Vernon in 1981...)
