With the exception of the grand prize, all of our prizes are part of a pool from which winning contestants select, starting with the first runner-up.  With the three challenges we have run, all of our winners have been lucky enough to receive either their first or second choice of items.  In the event of a tie between any prize-winners (grand prize winners or runners-up), then and only then will the time that an entry was received determine the priority of choosing from the prize pool.)

The number of prizes actually given out from the prize pool will depend in part upon the number of participants we have, as only the top 10% of entrants will be awarded a prize.

 

 

GRAND PRIZE: A choice between one of two signed editions:

Choice 1) Stitch in Snow by Anne McCaffrey, signed limited edition

This is one of 1000 signed copies of the first edition of Stitch in Snow published by Brandywyne Books.  It is bound in white leatherette and the page edges are gilt.  There is no slipcase for this copy, but it is mint condition.

UK first edition hardcover book signed by Anne McCaffrey and by Steven Beard (to whom the book is dedicated).  Book is signed "Congratulations on Winning the Quest" by Anne McCaffrey.

If the grand prize winner should prefer to pass on one of these books, he/she will be free to choose a different prize from the prize pool items listed below.  The signed books, however, will not be available to runners-up should the grand prize winner pass on the opportunity.
