    If you'll remember, I ran a series of competitions, where posters could enter to win a book by one of ten authors...

    Well, I closed the board earlier today, then used a Random Number Generator to pick a post number from each thread.

    I recognise plenty of names who entered, and I genuinely wish I could give every single person who entered a prize.

    However, the bad news is that I can only offer 10 prizes - the good news is that I think we're going to see more competitions here in future. :)

    Here are the results of the competition:

    Win a Terry Pratchett book! - direghost
    Win an Arthur C Clarke book! - Nokia
    Win a Steven Erikson book! - sanityassassin
    Win a Robert Heinlein book! - weaveworld
    Win a Gene Wolfe book! - Lacedaemonian
    Win a Michael Moorcock book! - ladyflorange
    Win an Anne McCaffrey book! - JohnSnow
    Win a David Gemmell book! - genisis2
    Win a George R R Martin book! - GOLLUM
    Win a Tad Williams book! - Denie Alconn

    If the winners could spend a couple of days deciding which book they would like to choose from their respective author (and remember it's paperbacks only!), then I'll send you a PM on Wednesday and arrange shipping information with you.

    And congratulations to everyone who won, and best of luck next time for all those who didn't (including me!!). :D

    Congratulations to all the winners!

    Now you'll all learn the hard part wasn't winning, but choosing just one book by that author... :D

    You mean I didn't win? Right then, I'd better start my own competition right away with loads of prizes. The rules will be simple: you have to be called Mark Robson to enter, and only the real Mark Robson will win. :D

    Congrats to all the winners.

    The downside is that you only win books written by the real Mark Robson! ;)

    Congratulations all winners!

    To direghost:I'd recommend Going Postal, Monstrous Regiment, or Soul Music. These are my favorites, plus they're fairly long as far as Discworld novels go (which is a good thing if you end up loving Pratchett as much as I do.)

    direghost - as you've only ever read Good Omens for Terry Pratchett, the one I'd recommend is Small Gods, which is a funny standalone, or Men at Arms which introduces the Night Watch & Captain Vimes for the first time. :)
