Giveaway! 'The Fuller Memorandum' (Charles Stross)

I’ve enjoyed Charles Stross’ ‘Laundry’ novels pretty much since this blog began and, as a result, ‘The Fuller Memorandum’ has stealthily crept to somewhere very near the top of the reading pile. You can expect a review soonish :o)

While you’re here, check out the blurb...

Bob Howard is an IT specialist and field agent for the Laundry, the branch of Her Majesty's secret service that deals with occult threats. Overworked and underpaid, Bob is used to his two jobs overflowing from a strict nine to five and, since his wife Mo has a very similar job description, he understands that work will sometimes follow her home, too. But when 'work' involves zombie assassins and minions of a mad god's cult, he realises things are spinning out of control. When a top-secret dossier goes missing and his boss Angleton is implicated, Bob must contend with suspiciously helpful Russian intelligence operatives and an unscrupulous apocalyptic cult before confronting the decades-old secret that lies at the heart of the Laundry: what is so important about the missing Fuller Memorandum? And why are all the people who know dying ...?

Good isn’t it? Well, thanks to Orbit, I’ve got three copies of ‘The Fuller Memorandum’ to give away so you decide for yourself just how good it is (it has zombie assassins in it, it can’t be bad... can it?) You can only enter if you live in the UK or Europe though...

Entering is easy. Just 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. You also need to make it clear, in the subject header, that this is the competition that you want to enter... I’ll do everything else :o)

I'm letting this one run until the 4th of July and will aim to announce the winners as soon as possible afterwards.

Good Luck!

Read Halting State recently. Thought very good. Have another by Stross as well to read. I can recommend Halting State, it has virtual games encroaching in to real life. And Scottish detectives. And orcs.
