Giveaway: The Terror

Thanks to Valerie with Hachette Book Group I have five copies of The Terror by Dan Simmons for giveaway.

Book Description:
"The men on board HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. When the expedition's leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a terrible death, Captain Francis Crozier takes command and leads his surviving crewmen on a last, desperate attempt to flee south across the ice. But as another winter approaches, as scurvy and starvation grow more terrible, and as the Terror on the ice stalks them southward, Crozier and his men begin to fear there is no escape. A haunting, gripping story based on actual historical events, The Terror is a novel that will chill you to your core."

I am currently reading Dan Simmons newest novel Drood, and have to say that I have been extremely impressed with his writing.

This book sounds so interesting. I read a short story by Simmons in the anthology The Living Dead called "This Year's Class Picture" that was absolutely brilliant, so I'd love to read more of his work.

I remember picking up a copy of an old People magazine I had and reading thru it and there was a brief article about this voyage. If memory serves me correctly, there was a picture of a well preserved body (one of the crew) that explorers had found many years was weirdly fascinating! Must have been horrific for the sailors on the long voyage though.
