Competition time!

Plugged by Eoin ColferA while back I read a gloriously violent and very acerbic short story called Taking on PJ by the Irish children's book author Eoin Colfer (of Artemis Fowl fame). This was decidely a new track in his career! I liked it. And now he's followed through (on the insistance of Ken Bruen...) and has written a full-length noir novel called Plugged about an Irish ex-military working as a bouncer at a strip-club in New Jersey. Well. You get the idea.

We have a signed copy to raffle out. Just e-mail us the answer to this question: What does Eoin rhyme with? before May 31 11pm! Within the realm only, as per usual...
