The Nine Deaths competition: the winners
Some time ago we announced a competition to celebrate the launch of John Llewellyn Probert’s Spectral Visions novella The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine. We have now picked a winner, much later than originally planned due to pressure of work and events but, before we announce who that winner is, here’s a reminder of what was up for grabs:
THE PRIZES: Top prize is a personally signed copy of the hardback, along with a poster of the front cover image (also signed), a paperback copy of Gary Fry’s The Respectable Face of Tyranny (signed), a set of posters of the covers of all the chapbooks published to date, and a Spectral badge.
Second and third prizes for the next two correct entries will be signed paperback copies of The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine, accompanied by a poster of the cover image (unsigned) and a Spectral badge.
All entrants had to do was answer the following question, set by the fiendish Mr. Probert himself:
In the film THEATRE OF BLOOD, how many plays made up Edward Lionheart’s final season of Shakespeare?
The answer was: TEN - Julius Caesar, Troilus & Cressida, Cymbeline, Merchant of Venice, Romeo & Juliet, Richard III, Othello, Henry VI Part 1, Titus Andronicus and King Lear.
And the winner is: ALISON LITTLEWOOD!
Runners up: JOHN HOWARD and LUCY JIANG
Congratulations to all – we will be emailing you within the next couple of days!
