Thanksgiving Giveaway! Win Signed Books and Posters!

It’s Thanksgiving here in the states — a time for being able to justify the consumption of ridiculous amounts of delicious, home-cooked foods… and a time to be thankful! We’ve had an incredible past year here on Shur’tugal as the community geared up for and celebrated the launch of Inheritance, the final book in the Inheritance cycle. Because of the enormous success of Shur’tugal, its community of fans, and Inheritance, we’d like to give back as a thank you!

Over the next 24 hours, Shur’tugal will be giving away ten signed copies of The Inheritance Almanac, the official companion guide to the Inheritance cycle. In addition, we’ll be giving away five signed Inheritance posters (featuring the four book covers and gorgeous gold-foiled text). This giveaway is in partnership with our sister site, Lytherus.com — a news, reviews, and opinion resource for everything fantasy, scifi, and horror! To be eligible to win a signed book or poster, you must either follow Lytherus on Twitter (@Lytherus) or “Like” Lytherus on their Facebook page. Once you’ve done so, send us a Tweet or reply to our giveaway post on the Lytherus wall and you’ll be entered to win!

Again, thank you an incredible eight years here on Shur’tugal and Happy Thanksgiving. We look forward to announcing our exciting plans for the future in the coming weeks. (And we’ve heard rumors that Mike sat down for an epic interview with Christopher Paolini, set to be released some time after Thanksgiving weekend…)

Before this week’s Big Twenty article, Book Club podcast hit (featuring Christopher’s editor!), and a confirmed release of the second part of our interview with Christopher Paolini, we wanted to share all of the biggest fantasy, scifi, and horror news from the last seven days with our visitors from our sister site, Lytherus.com. The Lytherus team had a whole host of news and reviews last week, including talks on “Transformers 4,” “World of Warcraft’s” newest expansion, big comic news – including “The Punisher” coming to TV, and some great book excerpts, just to name a few. We topped it off with nine fantastic reviews across books, movies, comics, and more. You can read all of these stories and more in the latest “Last Week on Lytherus”!
