Giveaway: Be the first to read and discuss the new novel by the author of Let the Right One In!

Harbor by John Ajvide LindqvistJohn Ajvide Lindqvist is the internationally best-selling author of Let the Right One In (Let Me In), and has been called “one of the most exciting writers working in the horror genre at the moment—a rival, indeed, to Stephen King.”* We’re giving away 65 copies of his upcoming novel, and we want to hear what you think!

We’re looking for advance readers to read and review Lindqvist’s Harbor (available October 2011)—[Sorry! The giveaway is now closed]. The first 65 people to respond will receive a specially printed galley of the book—and when you’re done reading, come on back to discuss the book! We’ve set up an official discussion forum for advance readers of Harbor, and we hope that you’ll chime in with your thoughts and reactions….

About the book:

From the author of the international and New York Times bestseller Let the Right One In (Let Me In) comes this stunning and terrifying book which begins when a man’s six-year-old daughter mysteriously vanishes. One ordinary winter afternoon on a snowy island, Anders and Cecilia take their young daughter Maja across the ice to visit the lighthouse in the middle of the frozen channel.

While the couple explore the lighthouse, Maja disappears—either into thin air or under thin ice—leaving not even a footprint in the snow. Two years later, alone and more or less permanently drunk, Anders returns to the island to regroup. He slowly realizes that people are not telling him all they know; even his own mother, it seems, is keeping secrets. What is happening in Domaro, and what power does the sea have over the town's inhabitants?

As he did with Let the Right One In and Handling the Undead, John Ajvide Lindqvist serves up a blockbuster cocktail of suspense in a narrative that barely pauses for breath....

Liked the first one and would be happy to review this (as long as it is in English, I don't read Swedish yet.)
