Giveaway! ' The Food of the Gods' (H.G. Wells)

H.G Wells is one of those authors where, just as I find myself thinking that I know of everything he's written, along he comes with a book that I've never even heard of. Not bad for a writer who's been dead well over fifty years now...
Take 'The Food of the Gods' for instance. Here's the blurb,

Mr Bensington and Professor Redwood were amongst that new breed of men - or 'scientists' as they had become known. And in the mid-nineteenth century, being a 'scientist' was not something one cared to admit to. But Bensington and Redwood were rather more interested in their new discovery than the nomenclature of pedants, especially when their new discovery was none other than Herakleophorbia. The first three variants were rather unremarkable, but Herakleophorbia IV - Herakleophorbia IV was the very food of gods...

I have a copy of 'The Food of the Gods' that I'll hopefully be getting to in the next few days. As it happens, I also have two other copies of 'The Food of the Gods' to give away on the blog (thanks to the people at Gollancz)... This competition is only open to people in the UK and Europe I'm afraid.

If you're still here then you know what to do next. Simply drop me an email (address at the top right hand corner of the screen) telling me who you are and what your postal address is. Your subject header will be 'I want some Food of the Gods!'

I'll be leaving this one open until the 19th of September and will aim to announce the winners as soon as possible afterwards.

Good Luck!
