The 'Someone put a curse on the bagel toaster...' Competition Winner's Post!

That's the only way I can explain a machine that takes a perfectly normal bagel and proceeds to burn the outside whilst returning it's innards to the uncooked doughy matter from which it originally came... You know what though? I still ate it :o) Today is shaping up to be a particularly evil kind of Monday (I wasn't best pleased with the attitude of some of my fellow commuters this morning...) but I am not going to let it beat me dammit!

Anyway, you're all here for news of who won last week's competitions and maybe also to find out about what's lying in wait on the blog this week. Some particularly lazy reading, over the weekend, means that the blog is mostly going to involve comic books this week but you can also expect to see a nice dose of zombies and Orks (not 'orcs', I've been reading Warhammer 40K fiction again...) over the next few days. If I see anything that really catches my eye then you might even see a cover art post as well, we'll see how that goes.

Thanks to everyone who entered last weeks competitions, it's your emails that guarantee more competitions in the future (although I bet you'd rather win a book than feel virtuous that you've given other people the chance to win stuff...) The 'Auralia' competition started out life as a chance to win all four books in the series but somehow became all about winning signed copies over the course of the week... Not sure what happened there but I will do my best to make sure this happens. The winner of that competition was...

Cody Steele, New Mexico

Well done Cody, your books are on their way!

The other competition was for advance copies of Peter Orullian's 'The Unremembered', one of those books that everyone is talking about. My copy only arrived at the weekend so I haven't had a chance to crack it open as yet. The three lucky winners were...

Judy Stewart, North Carolina, US
Tanja Wooten, Arkansas, US
Mike Bergsma, British Colombia, Canada

Congratulations to you guys as well! And better luck next time everyone else...

Oh well, back to it...

You swing a cursed bagel toaster at the healthy bagel. It dies!
You are not hungry anymore.

P.S. I would have eaten that too! Haha

Great! Here I was just thinking it was time to head out for another load of books. I can't wait to get it.

Thanks for the chance to win this :) Keep up the great work.

Great, this is really cool! I've been wanting to give Overstreet a try! For those who've never heard of him, he's also one of the more interesting film critics here in the States (
