Giveaway - The Terror - Dan Simmons


Well I've had enough of snow this winter, but here's your chance to win a tale that will really chill you....

Courtesy of Hachette Books, I have five copies of The Terror by Dan Simmons to giveaway!

"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."

Giveaway open to US and Canada, no po boxes please.Simply comment to be entered, an extra entry for linking/tweeting. Ends Sat, Feb 28/09 at 6 pm EST. Good luck!
