Default London Peculiar Contest #3: A CHRISTMAS BLITZ

Courtesy of the generous folk at PM Press, we have three copies of Michael Moorcock's new book, London Peculiar and Other Nonfiction to give away.

To be in with a chance of winning the third and final copy all you have to do is answer the following question:
'A Child's Christmas in the Blitz', featured in London Peculiar, originally appeared in which publication?
a) The Guardian
b) Dodgem Logic
c) New Worlds
Email your answer, with the subject 'A Christmas Blitz', to london@multiverse.org. The closing date for entries is 23:59 on Sunday 18th March 2012, your local time. A random draw of all correct entries received will be made to determine the winner, who will be announced in this and the general London Peculiar thread.

Small Print:
  • Entrants must email their entry according to the terms outlined above.
  • Closing date for entries is 23:59 on Sunday 18th March 2012 (your local time.) Entries emailed after this date will be declared invalid.
  • One entry per person.
  • This contest is open to all members of Moorcock's Miscellany, regardless of geographical location, except for site administrators and moderators.
  • The winner will be determined by a random draw from all correctly received entries. The judges' decision is final.
  • There is no cash alternative.
  • No purchase necessary.
Remember, there's still time to enter Contest #1 and Contest #2.

Good luck everyone.

Quick Q Whiskers, do you require any info other than the answer in the email, or will that be sorted out with the winner after the date?

Good point, Timberwolf. I guess a (nick)name would be handy - if you don't want to be referred to by your RL name (should you win) - but address details, etc. will be sorted out once the winners of all three contests have been announced.

It's also worth mentioning - if I haven't already - that of someone enters all three contests and wins either the first or second their entries for the remaining contests won't be counted for the sake of fairness to everyone else. (IOW, there's a maximum of one prize per winner.)
