Survived Man Flu, now Giving Away Some Translations

I fully intended to make some very, very exciting and entertaining posts here in the last couple of weeks. But then I got ill. I'm better now, so no sympathy required - and to be honest, like most men beset with a temporary affliction of the flu or cold sort, I was able to generate more than enough self-sympathy (trending towards self-pity) to keep myself comforted. Regular updates of the moaning and groaning and whimpering sort were provided to those around me, to ensure that everyone understood just how much I was suffering, and how manly I was being in not just giving up and spending all day every day in bed. Heroic, I was. Man flu is a terrible, terrible thing.

Anyway, now that I'm more or less functional again, I plan to clear a little bit of shelf space by attempting to give away some signed books. Hurrah! This is going to be a staged process, and stage one is somewhat experimental. So ...

Would anyone like a signed (and dedicated, if you like) copy of:

Winterwende, large format paperback of book one of the Godless World trilogy in German.
Ondergang, hardback of book three in the trilogy, in Dutch.

Now I'm not, to put it mildly, expecting a tidal wave of requests for these, so here's the plan: if you are interested, e-mail me at the address on the Contact page, expressing your interest in one or the other. In the event that I get more than one request for each, I'll pick a winner at random and get back in touch asking for a mailing address, and how you'd like me to sign or dedicate the book.

Worry not, monolingual English readers - there will be additional giveaway action imminently for you too (though your chances of benefiting from it will be somewhat higher if you're signed up as a fan on the Winterbirth Facebook page).
