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!

So if you want to win a signed copy, send us an e-mail with the answer to this question before April 5; The author Deborah Harkness is a historian, but she's also a prominent blogger in the field of imbibables. Which one in particular does she blog about? (Entries within the KoS only.)

And the winners of the The Crippled God competition are....

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

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...)
