This is just a reminder that the deadline is fast approaching for entries to The Rap Sheet’s latest book-giveaway contest. The prizes this time are one free copy each of Too Many Blows to the Head (set in the seedy underworld of crooked boxing) and Borrowed Trouble (set in the seedy underworld of the movies), both by J.B. Kohl and Eric Beetner.
Here’s how you can enter our competition: (1) e-mail your name and snail-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org; (2) along with that information, please tell us the title of your favorite novel or film set in America’s criminal underworld, and include any comments you’d like to make about that book or movie. We’ll post a selection of those recommendations in The Rap Sheet.
Oh, and be sure to write “Underworld Contest” in the subject line of your e-mail note. Contest entries will be accepted until midnight on Monday, May 2. Winners will be chosen at random and their names announced on this page the next day.
Sorry, but this competition is restricted to U.S. residents.
