NEW YORK, May 3, 2012—To celebrate the imminent re-launch of its Web site, as well as the upcoming release of several new titles in its growing library of genre-related reference books, independent publisher Hasslein Books (hassleinbooks.com) is offering a contest to those with Facebook and Twitter accounts, in order to increase its social-media presence.

The 500th person to "Like" Hasslein Books' Facebook page (www.facebook.com/hassleinbooks) will receive a free copy of Lexicon of the Planet of the Apes: The Comprehensive Encyclopedia. At more than 420 pages, this hefty tome contains 3,200 alphabetical entries in 50-plus categories, detailing every character, creature, location, weapon, vehicle and more, from every film, episode, cartoon, comic, novel and video game in the Planet of the Apes mythos. Breathtaking full-page sketches by artist Pat Carbajal highlight key characters, with more than 800 additional images accenting a mother lode of information—plus, a foreword by famed literary critic John Kenneth Muir. Lexicon of the Planet of the Apes, published in 2010, is the best way to learn everything there is to know about Planet of the Apes.

In addition, the 500th person to "Follow" Hasslein Books' Twitter feed (twitter.com/hassleinbooks) will win a free copy of Timeline of the Planet of the Apes: The Definitive Chronology, published in 2008. Timeline of the Planet of the Apes presents four decades of films, episodes, cartoons, novels, comics, short stories and audios—including rejected or unpublished tales—in their proper chronological context. With a chronology spanning millennia, this volume features more than 350 cover images, a recommended viewing/reading order, an examination of time travel and a title/creator index—plus, insightful notes discussing preliminary and discarded concepts, discontinuities, fascinating trivia and more.

"When we launched Hasslein Books, we wanted to be able to offer science fiction, adventure and horror fans the types of books we've always enjoyed reading, as we are, first and foremost, fans ourselves," said Handley, "and our first two offerings—the Planet of the Apes books—have been very successful. Now, we're starting to grow, with nine upcoming titles in various stages of planning, from such popular authors as Alan J. Porter, David A. McIntee and Jim Beard. With that in mind, it's time for us to get the word out to more genre fans."

Paul C. Giachetti, Hasslein Books' art director and co-founder, added, "Social media is a powerful business tool, and we're excited at the prospect of growing our presence on Twitter and Facebook. Joining our online communities is a great way to gain awareness of what we're doing—and, best of all, everyone who does so will have a chance to win one of our existing reference books. With our Web site soon to undergo some major changes—it's going to look amazing—now is a good time for us to offer people some free stuff."

For more information about Hasslein Books' titles, visit www.hassleinbooks.com. To become eligible for the contest, simply "Like" www.facebook.com/hassleinbooks and/or "Follow" twitter.com/hassleinbooks. Winners will be announced at all three sites once the requisite numbers of followers have been reached.
