  11. Ooh, awesome! I've been trying to get my hands on a copy of this, partly because it sounds awesome and partly because of my ongoing campaign to find vampire books that are actually good (i.e. no sparkling undead).

  20. Gail will often put up menu's from Victorian times of the things people in gentle society ate and drank. I find it fascinating the number of courses they went through in an evening, though I shy away from Fois de Gras and Spatchcock.

    Checked out website: I thought it was cool she made a list of people she'd want in a movie version of Soulless. Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry are awesome.

  64. I'd _love_ to read this book. It would be perfect after a lackluster selection of books available to me recently...Thank you for holding this contest and for opening it internationally since it's quite difficult to find unique titles in my country.

    + 1: I can't wait to read this book! I'm sure the whole series will be added to my long list of favorites!

    +1: Something interesting - linked to a Banned Books blog from Gail's site. Interesting that censorship is alive & well!

  67. I grew up with the author, and remember playing dressup and pretend together.... and can't wait to read her stories, if they are anything like our dressup stories then they will be great!

  68. Oh wow, I'd love to win this book, it looks like a great story.
