WORLDWIDE GIVEAWAY | The Severed Streets – Paul Cornell

I just got home from vacation and I’m fairly exhausted. I have to work in the morning, and I’m not in the mood to write a review.

Therefore, GIVEAWAY.

Last week the good people at Tor sent me two hardback copies of The Severed Streets by Paul Cornell. I really only need to read one. That leaves me with one extra book in a series I am absolutely in love with, and a bunch of readers who I want to share my love with.

Therefore, GIVEAWAY.

Here are the rules:

1) Giveaway is open WORLDWIDE. 


2) You have until midnight, Mountain Standard Time to enter on Wednesday, June 4. 

3) You can enter once, and you can enter by leaving a comment on this post. 

4) The winner will be randomly chosen and notified by email. You have 48 hours to respond to my email before I choose someone else. 

If you need a reminder, The Severed Streets is the second book in Paul Cornell’s Shadow Police series. Here’s the blurb:

Desperate to find a case to justify the team’s existence, with budget cuts and a police strike on the horizon, Quill thinks he’s struck gold when a cabinet minister is murdered by an assailant who wasn’t seen getting in or out of his limo. A second murder, that of the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, presents a crime scene with a message… identical to that left by the original Jack the Ripper.

The new Ripper seems to have changed the MO of the old completely: he’s only killing rich white men. The inquiry into just what this supernatural menace is takes Quill and his team into the corridors of power at Whitehall, to meetings with MI5, or ‘the funny people’ as the Met call them, and into the London occult underworld. They go undercover to a pub with a regular evening that caters to that clientele, and to an auction of objects of power at the Tate Modern.

Meanwhile, the Ripper keeps on killing and finally the pattern of those killings gives Quill’s team clues towards who’s really doing this.

Good luck to all who enter. May the odds be ever in your favor (or however that’s supposed to go).

  1. There seems to be time travel required, but I will enter anyway. It will be months before the copy I have ordered arrives in Australia so I could give that one away when it arrives.

  2. I adored London Falling and bought The Severed Streets immediately it came out as an ebook. Loving it so far… 🙂

  3. I’ve loved Paul’s comic book work for some time and have thoroughly enjoyed what prose I have read. He’s also a super nice guy! Would love to wina copy of Severed Streets!

  6. Hi! I loved London Falling and have been looking forward to this one. Good luck everyone! (Especially me;-)) Cheers!

  7. Paul is a masterful story teller so even if SS is half as good as its predecessor it’ll be well worth a read – apparently it’s beter!

  8. Wait.. you have to be a resident of planet Earth or do you just have to have an Earth address? I’m going to assume the latter, so I can receive the book. Lol

  9. Really glad you didn’t ask for a comment that was in any way apt, witty or amusing, because I’m all out. However, you are Bookworm Blues, and I claim my five pounds.

  10. As an ardent die-hard fan of your reviews & writing style I often think the giveaways are unfair – being restricted as it is to the US and Canada folks. So here’s a shout-out from the South-East of the World. Would be friggin’ awesome to win such!

  11. When I read it a few months ago, London Falling became one of my favorite books for many reasons, one of them being “You with the tentacles, you’re nicked.”. Thank you for the worldwide giveaway and a chance to win a sequel. Cheers!

  12. I fell in love with Paul’s writing after reading London Falling, wickedly good. Can’t wait to read this piece also. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  13. I can’t decide if I like Cornell’s novels or comic books more, so I need some more material to review to help me decide – thanks for the chance –
