Well, the 2nd competiton for a proof of Dead Ground certainly seemed easier than the first, with almost 200 of you getting it right. The answer to what Tilly called Spencer Maxwell, the semiotics expert brought in during The Curator, was of course a “Blockhead.” The winner has been notified (Rachel L.) and I’ll get a proof out to her as soon as I can.
And because I quite enjoyed reading your replies, I’m going to run a third competition right now. This one’s multi-guess and other than some obscure posts about Q.3, I don’t think any of the answers are in the public domain, so you’re down to luck.
Question 1: In the first few drafts of The Puppet Show, Tilly’s surname wasn’t Bradshaw, it was:
Question 2: In the first few drafts of The Puppet Show, Stephanie’s surname wasn’t Flynn, it was:
Dead Ground‘s working title (and one I would have loved to have been the final title) was:
A: The Thirteen Rat Theory
B: The Bad Beat
C: The Third Light
I’ll pick a winner from the correct answers at midday on Tuesday. Very best of luck.
