THE LADY OF THE BARGE by W.W. Jacobs is the only book that remains with me from my parents’ bookshelf of my infancy in the late 1940s / early 1950s.
What famous story is contained within its pages? Please write to me at email@example.com something about that story that is personal to you. Then it will become an ‘eligible entry’. To become an ‘eligible entry’, is my decision alone. But I shall inform you whether or not you have succeeded to become an ‘eligible entry’.
On 1 December 2011 or thereabouts, I shall pick from a hat at random an ‘eligible entry’ to win this WONDERFUL book below (as new, and signed by its editor Dan Ghetu):
[My scanning of above dust jacket in necessarily two sections – and my apologies for not managing its exact contiguity. (Its artwork is by Santiago Caruso).]
THERE MAY BE OTHER PRIZES FOR SOME LOSING ‘ELIGIBLE ENTRIES’….
I won this book myself in a competition, but as I have already received a contributor’s copy (with a story in this anthology), I’ve decided to ‘re-competition’ it.
