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 PRIZESTop 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 CaesarTroilus & CressidaCymbelineMerchant of VeniceRomeo & JulietRichard IIIOthelloHenry VI Part 1Titus 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!

  1. Ah, that’ll be why I’m not in the list of honour – one has to get the question right before one can be in the running. By the way, McAfee security has just advised me not to visit your site, warning of ‘risky behaviour’. Can you elaborate?? ; )
