Giveaway: Flash Gordon: The Tyrant of Mongo

UPDATE: Lawrence won and has been contacted.

Flash Gordon: The Tyrant of Mongo is a brand new 176-page, three-pound book, collecting the Flash Gordon stories appearing between 1937 and 1941.  Alex Raymond's art is gorgeous, and the pulpy proto-Star Wars stories are good fun.  There's plenty of rocket ships, and space monsters, and gleaming futuristic cities.  But the most fun is space mimbo Flash Gordon finding one flimsy excuse after another to take off his clothing:

The book's 43% off at Amazon.

I also have one copy to give away.  For a chance to win, simply comment on this post and include your email so I can contact you if you win.  One comment per person, and USA residents only, please.  I'll pick a winner on Friday.
