Read Fantasy Book Critic’s Review of “Majestrum

Sherlock Holmes meets Jack Vance's Dying Earth in Hespira, the new novel from Matthew Hughes, acclaimed author of Majestrum, The Spiral Labyrinth, and The Gist Hunter and Other Stories:

As magic continues to reassert its ancient dominion, replacing rationalism as the fundamental underpinning of the universe, Old Earth's foremost freelance discriminator, Henghis Hapthorn, and his intuition—now a separate person named Osk Rievor—are living apart, though they remain on good terms.

But now into Hapthorn's life comes a woman of mystery. Who is Hespira? Who has sent her to lure Hapthorn on a quest across the Ten Thousand Worlds? And to what final, fateful choice will she bring him?

In support of the January 2010 publication of “Hespira”, the newest Henghis Hapthorn novel by Matthew Hughes, Night Shade Books has agreed to give away TWO SETS of the Henghis Hapthorn novels including Hardcover copies of “Majestrum”, “The Spiral Labyrinth”, and the new book, “Hespira”!!!

I assume if one enters the Grand Prize drawing, there's no need to enter the other (non-grand) one? Thanks!

I'm a little confused; does entering the version of the contest requiring answering the question also enter you into the simpler form, or should one enter both? The rule limiting entries suggests it's one contest for this purpose, so I have only sent one entry, but I'd appreciate a clarification.

I should have been clearer. I meant for contestants to either just enter a mailing address, or go the extra mile and find the answer to Matt's question. Not submit entries for both. It's a little late for that now, but TWO separate winners will be selected, so no one will be able to win both prize packs...
