A Darkness Dwellers Giveaway!




So I haven't been blogging. What have I been doing? Good question. Contemplating my next move, I suppose. I'll let you know what it is as soon as I've figured it out.

In the meantime, I have another ARC of The Darkness Dwellers to give away! (And if I promised you a copy at some point in the past, now is the time to remind me!)

The first person who can provide a correct answer the following question wins an ARC. . . .

What common food can cause a condition called pellagra--the symptoms of which (pale skin, sensitivity to sunlight) may have inspired European tales of vampirism?

(I just finished reading Wicked Plants, by Amy Stewart. Highly recommended.)

UPDATE: The first correct answer came in at 3:14! MKB (aka Anonymous), send me a note at kikistrike@gmail.com! Congratulations!

Don't worry slow-pokes, there will be more giveaways soon!

A deficeiency of b3 causes pellagra. So the common food causing pellagra would be corn.

So Kirsten's been reading Wicked Plants. Has anyone else been reading some at least vaguely creepy nonfiction? I'm currently working my way through Wayne Biddle's A Field Guide to Radiation.

Robert--

"Deadly Doses: A Writer's Guide to Poisons" by Stevens & Klarner. I seem to have effectively wierded out my classmates and it's only October. (Not my record, but still good.)

It's fascinating. Different sections for household items, biological poisons (esp. snake venoms!), medical poisons, the "classics" (arsenic, cyanide, strychnine, all the stuff you'd find in classic mysteries), plants, fungi...
