Rudolph's Galley Give Away


The Rudolph Pearson "What's My Line" Contest

Chaosium is running a contest for The Strange Cases of Rudolph Pearson. Follow this link to visit the Chaosium site for more details: Click here.

Enter the contest and maybe you'll win a free Chaosium T-Shirt of your choice, and a signed galley of the The Strange Cases of Rudolph Pearson book.

So what's a galley? In this case it isn't a ship. It is an advance copy of the book, bound but without cover. It is one of the things the author gets to read before the book goes to press, and in this case there are only a few of them still in existence - as the author is tough on the galleys (yes, the plural for this type of "galley" is "galleys").

I'm thinking of all kinds of puns, "chained to the Galley," "Slave of the galley."

Sounds like a cool contest though. I rather enjoy seeing galleys. Other people's galleys.

I'll check it out.

My email won't deliver. So I'm posting it here. The rules said 3 entries. Is there extra points for using 3 in a row?

Despair embraced me, and a great darkness braced me.

No, I wasn't a hero of yore.

But there was something inside me that should be feared.
