So, after hundreds of entries - thank you so much to everyone who emailed through - I can finally pick a winner.
The answer to the question "Which is the first book of the Malazan Book of the Fallen?" is, of course, Gardens of the Moon. I'm happy to say that no one got that wrong!
Seriously, I wish I could give all of you this prize, so that I can share my love of Erikson's work, but there can only be one winner and that person is:
Congratulations Robert, and enjoy your books!
To everyone else, so sorry that you were not lucky on this occasion - but remember that The Crippled God is now out in shops (in the UK, at least!) and so this is the perfect time to start your Malazan journey.
