    WIN - An exclusive print signed by Sir Terry Pratchett & Paul Kidby

    Ook! The Library in Ankh-Morpork is on fire.  Even the long-limbed, agile Librarian will have time to save only one volume from the conflagration, and, as he’s squatting near the science-fiction and fantasy sections, the surviving book must come from there.  We’d like you to tell us, in a review of no more than 500 words, which book it ought to be. 

    Entries should be emailed to, using SFcomp as the heading. Judges of the competition will include Marc Gascoigne MD & Publisher, Angry Robot Ltd, and our very own David Birkett. We’ll publish a selection of the book review entries, and the winner will receive this exclusive print signed by Sir Terry Pratchett and the Discworld artist Paul Kidby, the latter of whom created the amazing BookBench that we sponsored as part of the Books about Town campaign. The winner and four runners-up will also receive paperbacks of Sir Terry Pratchett's Wee Free Men and Going Postal, signed by the author and Paul Kidby.

    Entries should be received by midnight on the 31st October 2014.

    In summary, how to enter...

    1. Choose your favourite Sci-Fi or Fantasy novel.

    2. Write your review.

    3. Send your entry to by midnight on the
      31st October 2014, using SFcomp as the heading. Write in no more than 500 words about the book and the reason it should be saved from the fire.

    4. Sit back and wait for our wonderful judges to decide if your book will be saved from the fire.
