Giveaway! 'The Extra' (Michael Shea)


This book came through the post yesterday morning and all I've been thinking ever since is... 'giant mechanical spiders!' :o)
I'll be honest and say that the spiders along sold me on this book but the blurb looks pretty cool too. Here it is...

In the not-too-distant future, humanity is so decimated by poverty that people will do anything for money.

An innovative producer gives the poor hope by offering them work as extras in a series of “live death” films where they’ll be stalked by giant, blood-thirsty mechanical monsters.

The job is easy – survive.


Ok, it sounds like 'The Running Man' but 'The Running Man' never had giant mechanical spiders did it? Did it? I rest my case... ;o) 'The Extra' will be read and reviewed here very soon. In the meantime how do you fancy winning a copy for yourself?

Thanks to Tor, I have three copies of 'The Extra' to give away to readers in the US and Canada (they're the only people who can enter this one). To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is drop me an email (address at the top right hand side of the screen) telling me who you are and what your postal address is. I'll do the rest.

I'll let this one run until the 28th of February and will announce the winners on the 1st of March.

Good Luck!
