Give F. Paul Wilson His Next Plot!

F. Paul Wilson has crafted a series of novels around “Repairman Jack,” a one-man supernatural A-Team, or, as his website puts it: “He dwells in the interstices of modern society, has no official identity, no social security card, pays no taxes. When you need help and you’ve lost faith in the system, or the system itself is the problem, you go to a guy outside the system. That’s Jack.” Ten demon-filled novels later, Wilson’s turning to fans to add the next twist with a “Stump Repairman Jack” contest that offers $1,000 to the lucky reader who comes up with the problem Wilson thinks would most genuinely challenge his protagonist—in fact, if he uses it in the eleventh book, the winner will even appear as a character.

To make things easier, Forge is offering a special deep discount on two earlier books in the series, The Tomb and All the Rage, that also includes a $4 coupon for Harbingers, which hits bookstores in September.
