Shamus Young's 'Witch Watch' Quiz
In between ranting about Mass Effect and DRM, Shamus Young found time to write his very first novel, The Witch Watch, and we're celebrating this mighty achievement by giving away signed copies of the book! The inspiration for the book came from an unlikely source - World of Warcraft. Here's how Shamus explains the brainstorm that became The Witch Watch:
At the time I thought it would be amusing if someone in the player's position was greeted with, "Welcome back, Bob! We've revived you so that... what? You're not Bob? Oh. Sorry. How awkward. Not to hurt your feelings, but we have no idea who you are and nobody seems all that upset about you being dead. Again, sorry. Not to make this any worse for you, but I need to revive Bob, and right now I used up all the magic bringing you back. Would you mind... you know, going back to being dead?"'
What happens if you bring the wrong fellow back from the dead? A young lady with a head for invention, a boy with a gift for sorcery, and a rotting corpse with a dry sense of humor all find themselves fighting against a strange new threat in Victorian-era London in Shamus Young's new book, The Witch Watch. By taking our quiz, you'll be entered for a chance to win one of five copies.
