There’s a column over at Hub in which I explain why One was written. There’s also a short, good review of the novel.
The answer to the competition question was: MacCreadle.
The winner is James Gosling, of Braintree, Essex. Books are on their way to you, sir.
Thanks to everybody for entering. There’s plenty of time to submit for the second competition…
