Someone has a extra hardcover copy of Night of the Hunter and there's a writing competition for the book.
Here are the guidelines for the competition:
* Following in the footsteps of Drizzt Do'Urden, write a short story/scene should focus on an atypical character. Here is a chance to spin a tale about one of the unsung perspectives of the Forgotten realms. Ignore stereotypes and break the expectations of the audience.
* Are you a sympathetic villain or a misunderstood hero? From devilish carpenters to gnomish tyrants, set the scene you want to tell.
* You can either find a canon character that matches the above description and add a chapter to their tales or create a character of your own devising, introducing them as you see best.
* As long as it fits in one post (10,000 characters), no story is too small or too long. There is no restriction on style, just have fun.
* This competition will run for a two (2) weeks* so as many entries can be collected (and voted on) as possible. The final date of the competition is September 15. The winner with the most votes will receive a copy of Night of the Hunter from https://www.reddit.com/u/TerrorBlades
. The book will be shipped internationally, no distance limit!

I know that this forum is full of talents, @Nonnahswriter
and many-many others, so having seen that announcement, I've thought I should share it here.
