You’re going to tell a story in three sentences. You will post this story here, in the comments below. Keep it under 100 words. You only get one entry. I will give away three copies of the book in either ePub, MOBI or PDF format. Your choice. You’ve got one week. You in?

I’m just making these up — so, for instance, the “Bone Cathedral” is not a thing that has any particular definition to it. You interpret these as you see fit.
