Supernatural Noir – Enter to Win a Signed Copy!

Award winning editor Ellen Datlow is giving away 5 (YES! FIVE!) signed copies of her new anthology Supernatural Noir.

The copies will be signed by Ellen Datlow and several of the contributing authors including Gregory Frost, Jeffrey Ford, John Langan, Rick Bowes, and Paul Tremblay as part of the special reading they are doing on July 22nd.

For those of you in the New York City area, Ellen is hosting a special reading for Supernatural Noir on Friday, July 22nd at the KGB Bar, starting at 7:00 pm located at 85 E 4th Street (off 2nd Ave., upstairs), New York, NY.

If you’re in New York City, I highly recommend attending this very special reading, which is not a part of the normal Fantastic Fiction series that is held there every month. The Supernatural Noir readers will include Ellen Datlow (as host), Gregory Frost, Jeffrey Ford, John Langan, Rick Bowes, and Paul Tremblay. I’ve heard most of these authors read before, and they are terrific.

If I weren’t running this contest on Underwords, I’d be the first entry on the list since I have been waiting for this book to come out for months. Yes, I will be buying a copy for myself, but I digress! We have 5 signed copies of Supernatural Noir up for grabs, which means that you have an excellent chance to win a book.

Enter the SUPERNATURAL NOIR Contest

All you have to do for your chance to win a signed copy of Supernatural Noir is to post a note in the comments below by midnight on July 27th. One entry per person.

**However, you can get a double entry by posting the link for this contest on your blog, Facebook page, in Twitter, or somewhere else. After you post the URL, let me know in the comments below that you “boosted the signal” and your one entry counts as two entries – doubling your chances to win.**

The contest is open to anyone with a U.S. mailing address. The winner will be chosen at random and contacted via email for mailing instructions. If you are under 14, please get your parent’s permission to enter this contest.

  14. I would like a copy of this anthology and I boosted the signal

  15. Nick Gucker says:

    Datlow’s got her finger on the vibrant pulse of relevant contemporary writers who matter, and this collection is brimming with them, not to mention it’s a great hybrid idea, both genres being rather shadowy and full of mystery.

  16. Sam Cowan says:

    I would get this book for the Laird Barron story alone, but man, what an outstanding line up! And yeah, signal boosted on Facebook. Bring it!!
