AUDIO GIVEAWAY!!!!! BLACK HILLS BY DAN SIMMONS

Anyone who reads fantasy/sci-fi/horror knows Dan Simmon's name.  He is the author of some of the scariest books around, and a real rival to Stephen King and Clive Barker.  You can see my review of his last book, Drood, on this site, and I rarely miss one of Simmon's books.  They are riveting although not always for the faint-hearted.  Thanks to Hachette, I'm able to do a giveaway for an audio copy of his latest, Black Hills.

A blurb from Amazon's site:

Simmons's previous novels The Terror (2007) and Drood (2009) meld historical figures and events to occult phenomena, and Black Hills follows a similar pattern. Here, Simmons fuses the triumph of American Western expansion and the marvels of early 20th-century science and engineering with Native American spirituality and mysticism. Simmons is a gifted storyteller whose meticulous research and evocative prose deftly transport readers to another time and place. However, the Christian Science Monitor found the frequent barrage of historical minutiae tedious and criticized the novel's interpretation of Manifest Destiny and the harsh treatment of native populations, which it considered obnoxious and disrespectful. However, most critics praised Black Hills as a highly imaginative, interesting novel and a worthy addition to Simmons's oeuvre.
