Book Giveaway – Throne of the Crescent Moon (1/7/2013)

I have this feeling of being on a roll now. The last three choices for these giveaways seem to have gone down well and so I’m going for a banker this week: Saladin Ahmed’s Thrown of the Crescent Moon.

Here’s a link to the SFX review and the Kirkus Review. It’s had a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly and I do believe it might have won an award just recently (Locus Best First Novel :-)

I don’t really have any news this week. Some words. They happened.

Usual deal – comment on this post before July 6th  and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy of the book. Since it’s one of mine, I’ll sign and line it of you like. Since I’m on time with getting this one up and since there were SEVERAL complaints last week when I didn’t make life difficult, we’re going to play Fantasy Supermarket again (first commenter has to point out something fantasy-related beginning with A, second commenter has to point out something fantasy-related beginning with B, etc). I’ll vary it, before anyone complains, just not this week.

Although, though no one has yet complained about how long it takes me to get to the post office and post things, it can take a while and if you live abroad then it can take even longer. Sorry about that, but they do get there eventually. Well, so far.
