Win an iPod … and a Witch?

Season of the Witch (click to see it bigger!)While news may have slowed down with the holidays rolling in, that doesn’t mean there aren’t cool things going on in the horror genre, take Season of the Witch for instance. The book, penned by Natasha Mostert, has a interesting synopsis:

Gabriel Blackstone is a cool, hip, thoroughly 21st Century Londoner with an unusual talent. A computer hacker by trade, he is – by inclination – a remote viewer; someone whose unique gifts enable him to see into the thought processes of others.

But he only does this with the greatest reluctance – until he is contacted by an ex-lover who begs him to use his gift to find her step-son, last seen months earlier in the company of two sisters.

If that sounds like your type of reading, then I’m happy to present you with a special contest. There is currently a game going on that anyone can enter with a couple of kickass prizes awaiting those with a fast brain. Click here to start the game, and remember each week the player with the fastest time will receive a signed copy of the book, and the overall fastest time will receive an Apple iPod. That makes holiday shopping a lot easier on us lazy folk.

If you get a “winner is not you” message, the book can always be purchased from Evilshop. If you’d like to learn more about Natasha Mostert, visit her MySpace page or her official website.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
