China Miéville competition

China Miéville is easily one of the writers who made a clear impact on my reading experience lately and became one of my favorite authors. Therefore one of my most anticipated releases of 2011 is his latest novel, “Embassytown”. The novel will be released by Pan Macmillan on 6th of May and with this occasion the publishers will also release new editions of China Miéville’s books with re-designed covers to match the one of “Embassytown”. I do find the new covers very appealing and I really like the effort Pan Macmillan put behind these series of covers.

Now, I should not reveal this information, because it will decrease my chances of winning, but I don’t believe it is much of a secret. I am only joking, but not about the competition. On the Book Depository there is competition that runs until the publication date of “Embassytown”, 6th of May, in which we can win a print of the cover of our choice, from the new designed ones, signed by China Miéville and the artist. If the prize sounds appetizing all you need to do is answer 5 questions about China Miéville for a chance to win it. I already did :D You can find full details of the competition and the questions on this Book Depository page. Good luck to all!
