Competition Question 3
So everyone! Here we are again with the last question.
I have one last paperback copy of Emanation reserved, the first book in the saga. I will sign it and will post them out to the lucky winner.
The rules are simple. The first correct answer in the comments section below will win. (Comments are time stamped, so don’t worry if your post is moderated by the website tech – I’ll check the timings!)
After that I’ll contact the winners for address details and arrange for them to be sent after Fantasticon
Question Three : The “Drew” Question
I got in trouble at school at age 13, such a rebel I was! What did I get in trouble for? (The answer is buried in my blog somewhere…)
I got told off by my English Literature Master (they were called ‘Masters’ back then) for continually writing essays which featured spaceships and space travel. He told me “No more whoosh went the rocket stories, Wagar!”…
… So I started my next essay with “Whoosh went the rocket… as Johnny switched off the TV to do his homework.”
That got me a detention. Fortunately I never stopped writing ‘Whoosh went the rocket” stories! 😉
To be fair he was an excellent teacher and taught me a lot about literature, characterisation and dialogue even at that age, plus he slipped me copies of Jules Verne and Edgar Rice Burroughs’ books. “I can’t stand them, but you’ll probably enjoy them!” 🙂
