Grimmfest Newsletter Competition

The Grimm Up North festival may be over for this year, but the organising team are already planning future events, so please check their website regularly.

They’ve just announced a few quick competitions to win merchandise that was donated by the guests, and you can get your hands on some signed books and T-shirts from me. To stand a chance of winning you’ll need to:

  1. Visit the Grimm website here, go to the Contact page and sign up for their newsletter
  2. Click here to send an email (subject DAVID MOODY COMP) with the answer to this question: What relation is Dickon Tolson, star of AUTUMN, to the director of the movie?

Good luck. And remember, you have to sign up to Grimm’s newsletter to be eligible for the competition.

Signed and rare books for sale

Bit of an unusual post, this one… I’ve been clearing out my office and my attic and I’ve decided it’s time for a sale! In perfect time for Christmas (coincidence – honest!), I’ve found a few boxes of books which I’m selling off through www.infectedbooks.co.uk.

There are a few special items here which I’d like to draw your attention to…

I acquired a small batch of copies of the original Infected Books edition of AUTUMN for the recent Grimm Up North festival, and I’m selling off the surplus. Please get in quick – this is absolutely the last time the book will be available before its re-issue through Thomas Dunne Books in the US and Gollancz in the UK in September / October 2010.

Autumn Straight to You Hater

Also, whilst clearing out I discovered a couple of copies of the original Infected Books release of HATER and a box of hardcover copies of Straight to You. Those of you who’ve followed me for a while will know that whilst I still love the concept of Straight to You, I think the book has dated badly and I’m more than happy to let these copies go. I haven’t wanted to set a specific price for these rare editions (only 500 copies of the Straight to You hardback were ever produced, so this is about as rare as it gets for me!). I’m happy to accept any sensible offers based on how much having the books would mean to you.

I hope this is interesting to some of you. If you have any questions or you want any more information, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Use this page here to contact me.

The Men They Couldn’t Hang

While I was originally writing HATER in 2006, I got talking to Phil ‘Swill’ Odgers of the band The Men They Couldn’t Hang. One thing led to another and the end result was that the entire band made a brutal and unforgettable appearance in chapter 4 of the book!


David Moody / The Men They Couldn't Hang exclusive competition

To celebrate the re-publication of HATER and the fact that The Men They Couldn’t Hang will shortly be releasing a new album (visit www.tmtch.net for news of an EP and a tour announcement), we’ve combined forces to run an exclusive competition. Click here (before 30 April) and answer a very simple question for a chance to win one of three copies of the UK hardback edition of HATER, signed by both me and Swill!
