What if I were to offer a prize to celebrate my first year as an author? Let’s say a unique, only-one-in-the-world e-copy of my first story, Calyptra Mortiferum, with a personalized dedication to the winner in the front?

Marlowe, F.K. Calyptra Mortiferum book cover XS

Who wrote the classic horror short story “The Pit and the Pendulum”?

That was the question you had to know the answer to in this week’s Ship’s Log. Only subscribers can take part in these giveaways, so you may want to sign up now to make sure you don’t miss the next one.

(Pssst! The second edition will be published on Sunday the 16th of April. If you sign up before midnight the 15th, you still have a chance to get in on this one.)

F.K. Marlowe is a Shropshire lass who lived in London and Beijing before settling down with her husband, three daughters and rescue pup in Vancouver. She writes horror stories with a tendency to the paranormal, and Young Adult fiction with fangs and sass.

Marlowe doesn’t worry overly much about the placement of semi-colons and the like, having spent far too long pootling about in academia to take them seriously. (She has an Oxford first in English Lit, plus a Master’s and PhD from Leeds). She has, however, discovered that life is the best education for a writer, and plans to continue her studies there as long as possible.
