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!


Congratulations to all – we will be emailing you within the next couple of days!
