Giveaway - The Terror by Dan Simmons...

February 16, 2009
Time for another giveaway! I have 5 copies of The Terror (paperback) by Dan Simmons, courtesy of Hachette Book Group.

The men on board HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. When the expedition's leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a terrible death, Captain Francis Crozier takes command and leads his surviving crewmen on a last, desperate attempt to flee south across the ice.

But as another winter approaches, as scurvy and starvation grow more terrible, and as the Terror on the ice stalks them southward, Crozier and his men begin to fear there is no escape.

A haunting, gripping story based on actual historical events, The Terror is a novel that will chill you to your core.


Giveaway details:
This giveaway will run till 11:59pm on March 1st, and is open to US & Canada residents only. Sorry, no P.O. Boxes - HBG rules.

To enter, just leave a comment and tell me which Dan Simmons book(s) you've read, & whether you liked it. THIS STEP MUST BE DONE FOR YOUR ENTRY TO COUNT!

YES I have read one of Dan Simmon's books. It was Hyperion and believe it or not I found it at a thrift store! (I'm a mad thrift store shopper) I bought Hyperion for a quarter; and it was worth a lot more in its entertainment lol

Thanks I'd love to win and read this book!

Hi Drey,
Thanks for the contest. I have read Hardcase and I really liked it, I kept putting off reading it thinking I was not going to like it. I would like to give The Terror a shot.

I have never read Dan Simmons before but this seems like a great place to start. The book sounds very interesting and scary too. I have never entered a book contest before so this should be fun. Thanks wheels209@verizon.net

I sadly have never read any books by Dan Simmons so does that disqualify me? See, if I win, you will help me improve my lot in life? Anyway, I am already a follower and I am blogging about your giveaway on my blog (http://bookinwithbingo.blogspot.com) and am off now to figure out how I make one of those link things work. Keep your fingers crossed cause each day I learn something new and at my age, that IS amazing! Thanks for the giveaway!

Bingo said...

OK..I did part of it, Drey! I have your giveaway posted and I made a link when they click on DREY but don't know how to make it show up down below where it says LINKS TO THIS POST? hmmm!

Jo-Jo said...

I posted an entry up above...so please disregard that one as I didn't share my favorite Simmons book. But that's an easy one since I haven't read any yet! This would be my first...Sorry about the confusion.

The only one of Dan Simmons books that I've read is Hollow Man (long ago). I liked it pretty well, but I just haven't kept up with what else he has been writing.

Indigo said...

I've only read one other book by Dan Simmons interesting enough it's another version of dealing with the cold and winter. The book was, "A Winter Haunting". I could so relate to the main character in the book, having your life fall apart and blaming yourself for things beyond your control. Even if I don't win this contest it made me want to pick up the book again and visit some old friends between the pages.

Please enter me for the drawing. Thanks! Indigo

I've only ever read Hyperion from Dan Simmons. I thought it was good enough to loan out, but then it never came back... =( Thanks, everyone, for stopping by & entering!
