Book Giveaway: The Terror

I've been authorized to give away up to five copies. Please read the rules below carefully.

The Terror
by Dan Simmons
Publisher: Little Brown

The men on board HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. When the expedition's leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a terrible death, Captain Francis Crozier takes command and leads his surviving crewmen on a last, desperate attempt to flee south across the ice. But as another winter approaches, as scurvy and starvation grow more terrible, and as the Terror on the ice stalks them southward, Crozier and his men begin to fear there is no escape. A haunting, gripping story based on actual historical events, The Terror is a novel that will chill you to your core.


  • Read this carefully. I am sad when I have to disqualify an entry but I do it anyway. Each rule (except for the last one which is Hachette's requirement) is there to assure that the day of the drawing does not consume ten plus hours of my day in chasing down contact info as my first one last summer did.
  • Leave a comment in this post expressing your interest in entering the drawing. This is the entry.
  • Provide an @ by which I can contact you in case of a win. Either in your comment or in an email to me at joystory AT gmail DOT com If you email your @ be sure to connect it to your entry comment. If I do not receive an @ your entry will be disqualified.
  • If, in the case of a win, you would like me to link to your blog in the winners announcement post, provide your URL in your comment or via email. This is not a requirement for entering nor do you have to have a blog yourself in order to enter.
  • If you blog about this giveaway, send me a link to the post and your name will be entered a second time.
  • Deadline for entering is NOON PST Saturday February 14, 2009. (Valentine's Day seemed appropriate for yesterday's contest for The Italian Lover so I combined it with my contest for the romance Sundays at Tiffany's ending then--go check it out if you haven't already. There is nothing remotely Valentinish about The Terror, I'm just lumping it in so I can tend to all the drawings on the same day.) I will select the winners with a random number generator using www.random.org
  • Winners must provide a US or Canadian mailing address. No PO Boxes.
