Giveaway: Concrete Operational box set!

Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a lovely weekend. I'm up in London right now at lots of publisher events and seeing lots of you gorgeous bloggers! Hooray! I've got a bit of a treat for you as well as I have a box set full of Concrete Operational goodies to give away to one of you.

The set includes an art book, CD and the novel itself, Concrete Operational by Richard Galbraith. I've read the book myself and it's fascinating. I absolutely guarantee you won't have read anything like it and if you enjoy your fiction a bit avant garde I'm sure you'll enjoy this. I've got a review of the book coming soon and an interview with Richard so do look out for those.

Concrete Operational is really unique in that the book is accompanied by an art book and CD, created by various artists who were inspired by the emotions in the book. Interesting, right? I thought so too.

To enter the giveaway click here to fill out the form and please see below for the rules and a summary of the novel.


- This contest is open to everybody - it's international, yay!
- It will run from today (23/1/11) until next Sunday (30/1/11) and will close at midnight (so, technically Monday morning I guess)
- I'll email the winner to notify then so please make sure the email address you leave is correct
- If I don't receive a response from the winner in 72 hours I'll choose another winner
- I will send this out as soon as I can but it's quite big so it may take a big longer to reach you than a regular book would (plus, my post office is a little slow!), I'll take a tracking number though as proof of posting so we can check up on it if anything goes amiss
- Please check out the privacy policy at the top of the page if you have any concerns about Internet safety and data protection.
- Following is appreciated but not essential - the same goes for Tweeting about this contest; it won't get you any extra entries but I'll send good karma your way.

Thanks guys and good luck :) x

Concrete Operational summary (from Goodreads): Germany Germany, a man who was free, a man who loved, now an instrument in their machine. They have turned him into the very thing he hates, what he and everyone he loved fought against, the world's greatest celebrity, a tool in the subjugation of man.

But the memories of freedom and love remain, and he will fight and change the course of human history for the better, but at what end?

As humanity progresses and turns to face the eternal black of the universe, the questions of free will and fate, of love and peace, of the riddles of time itself will arise, and Germany will be called upon. But is his will strong enough, is his mind ready to breach the void and provide us with salvation?
