Fahrenheit 451--- Giveaway Extraveganza! PT1

Post by Admin on Sun Sep 03, 2017 10:59 pm

The Numbered, Signed, and Ralph Steadman Illustrated edition of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 with slipcase

Ok, here we go folks, our first giveaway of the month. This is going to be a challenge that is going to force you to do a bit of decrypting and research. If its not your thing, then you'll have a chance at the next contest. This is available for ACTIVE SUBSCRIBERS ONLY.

First a bit of trivia to get us going

   In Bram Stoker's Dracula, where does Dracula Sleep?
   Describe the circumstances in which Mary Shelly came up with Frankenstein
   In Edgar Allan Poe's "The Black Cat" Which types of animals did the narrator have domesticated growing up?
   What Phobia does Stephen King have?


After Answering these four questions (hopefully correct) move on to the next section.

THE RIDDLE:

I am not for peace, though my ride suggests, for it is borrowed, come...pass my test.

Should you fail, and I will say it plain, there's little hope inside your brain.

It is mine, plans in the crapper, when I'm assaulted with a "happy-slapper"

If there's still doubt about who I am, then get online, lets palaver man!

Who am I?


The Last part of this contest is not really a challenge, just:

-Send in your 5 answers with a picture of your bookshelf.
-Lastly tell us that you are actively subscribed with the email associated with your account(not skipped or cancelled).

Thats IT. Email the responses to nrboxriddle@gmail.com the deadline to turn in your answer is 2PM CST on 9/8

NO ANSWERS IN THE FORUM!!! SUBMIT VIA EMAIL LISTED.

OK, how about a subtle hint on the riddle? Maybe I'm thinking too much. Maybe not enough.

Sent! I was sure you were joking about the "shelf"...I have about 5 shelves of Stephen King alone and 2 bookcases of horror, so you got some shots of the whole library.

OH NO. I missed it. I didn't check the submission deadline. And this Forum won't load on my work computer so I thought "I'll just do it this weekend." Ah well. I'll be ready for the next one!

Answers!

Post by jessguerrero89 on Wed Sep 13, 2017 10:15 am

Now that the contest is over, here are all the correct answers:

Dracula sleeps in soil from his native Transylvania.

Mary Shelley came up with Frankenstein while away with her husband and their friend. PB Shelley suggested that they all write a Gothic story. The story of Frankenstein came to her in a dream and she won the contest.

Birds, goldfish, a fine dog, rabbits, a small monkey, and a cat.

Stephen King's phobia is triskaidekaphobia, fear of the number 13.

And the answer to the riddle is Brady Hartsfield aka Mr. Mercedes
