Don’t Forget our Ice Warriors Comp!

Don’t forget that you have until tomorrow to submit your entry in our Ice Warriors competition, in which one lucky reader will win a copy of BBC Books’ The Silent Stars Go By, written by popular author Dan Abnett.

The book is the latest in a series of hard-backed titles that are aimed at a slightly older audience than the usual monthly releases, and is the first since 2005 to feature a classic foe not yet seen in the television series.

Last year’s release kick started the series – a Doctor Who novel by the excellent Michael Moorcock, The Coming of the Terraphiles, while next year’s entry into the run is an adaptation of the unfinished Shada serial from 1979. Douglas Adams’ script is being adapted by Gareth Roberts.

Anyhow, it’s time to focus on the task at hand. If  you haven’t sent your entry for the question below, now is the time to do so!

For which long-running British comic has Dan Abnett been one of the most prolific contributors?

So, to win our copy of The Silent Stars Go By, just send your answer to: competitions@kasterborous.com, making sure your message is sent before midnight in the UK tomorrow, Saturday, October 22nd 2011.

Meanwhile for one lucky runner-up we’ve got a paperback copy of last year’s The Coming of the Terraphiles!
