AMAZING GIVEAWAY! Win an Embossed Metal Repro of An Amazing Stories Cover!

Amazing Stories is starting a weekly giveaway contest to help get rid of some of the great things we’ve acquired over the past year or so.

In order to make it a bit more challenging than just sending in an email; we figured we’d do it contest style.  Here’s how it will work:

Once a week, we’ll post an image to our Facebook page.

On the same day, we’ll put up the contest post that will ask a question about that image.

In order to be entered into the random draw for a winner, you’ll have to put your answer to the question in the comments.  At the end of the week we’ll draw a winner (randomly) from those who answered the question correctly.

There’ll be a link to our Facebook page in the contest post, and a link to the contest post on our Facebook page, which ought to make the entire process pretty simple and straightforward (no matter where you see the contest, you’ll be able to log in and enter).

Today, we’re going to kick this off with one of our hottest items – an embossed metal sign reproduction of Frank R. Paul’s famous cover illustration of H. G. Wells The War of the Worlds!  (We’ve got two of these to give away, so don’t sweat it if you don’t win, another chance will be coming your way soon.)

This sign is 18″ x 12″ and comes pre-drilled for mounting on your wall.

It’s a reproduction of the August, 1927 issue of Amazing Stories, Volume 2, #5, the 17th issue of the magazine.

The sign is made under license by Open Road Brands LLC and normally retails for $27.95.

And now for this week’s contest question:

What internationally famous author of science fiction and fantasy (with major chops for screenwriting as well) claims to have gotten his start in Science Fiction after seeing the magazine cover pictured on our Facebook page?

We only started with 500, so availability is limited. Check it out here.
