Book Giveaway – War in Heaven (11/3/2013)

This week’s offering is War In Heaven by Gavin Smith. Gavin bears a particular contempt for The Smiths and it’s best not to get into a conversation about them anywhere within about five miles; despite this, hasn’t yet seen fit to change his name. I haven’t read War in Heaven but its predecessor was fast and furious and very messy. Rarely have so few been shot by so many and the bit where someone gets clubbed to death with their own cybernetic arm is… well, OK, I made that up, they only get clubbed unconscious. I have to be nice to Gavin since we’re writing an SF collaboration together (about which, yes, yes, I’ll say more if no one winds me up on Twitter this week…)

It’ll be a paperback edition. Usual deal – comment on this post and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy of the book. It’s about time we had another challenge this week – suggest another fictional character who ought to be clubbed to death by one of their own body-parts and why.

You can be as rude as you like as long as you’re not libelous. The gods of random don’t care. But as before, if you make me laugh I might send an exciting bonus goody your way[1]. 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. Oh, and these days for international delivery I’ll have to ask for a phone number as well as an address if you win.

[1] Exciting bonus goody not guaranteed to be exciting. But I have T-shirts if you really make me laugh.

    Would really love to read this book!

  2. Nick Sharps says:

    So I don’t know if this is funny but today a vagrant told me he’d “box kick” me whatever that means.

  3. Ian Anderson says:

    Getting this book for free will likely wind Gav up a treat, particularly when I ask him to sign it for me :D

  4. Chris Steller says:

    I’m looking forward to this book – getting it for free would be icing on the cake!

  5. Stefan says:

    Ever since reading ‘The Veteran’, I’ve been looking forwards to the sequel. From the synopsis, ‘War in Heaven’ definitely sounds worth reading.

  6. Kane Archer says:

    I’d suggest that Bashar Hafez al-Assad (lord high muckity-muck of Syria) be beaten to death with his own genitalia, however finding them could be problematic. So perhaps just beaten to death with the soggy end of his lower intestines.

    Does that work for you? Works for me :-)

  7. Aaron says:

    Clubbed to death with a body part of his own? I think Hellboy with his own stone hand; he can be very difficult to get along with and a taste of his own medicine wouldn’t hurt.

  8. Sarah says:

    Met Gavin @ a weird Gollancz night @ The Pheonix Club but no a single piece of garlic bread in sight. Impressed by Veteran ?film soon? X

  9. Richard 'Bat' Brewster says:

    Raziel from the Legacy of Kain series,needs to be beaten to death with his own right arm. Why? *SPOILER* Because that is where the Soul Reaver manifests when he uses it, but since all the crazy time travel plot is due to him being the Soul Reaver, if he killed himself then it would prevent a lot of debates ;-)

    Ooh Want! Cant wait for age of scorpio! Best damn cyberpunk series since Altered Carbon, think if i have to wait too long for scorpio my brain may explode (or just sulk into my morning tea). On topic any member of the twilight series, preferably both main characters within the first paragraph of the book. would save the world much tedium!

  11. Romeo Kennedy says:

    Ken Barlow from Coronation street should be beaten with his own feet. The man is an android from a paralell universe infiltrating a popular television show to release his own FRAGRANCE! (I’m sure of this!) This surely will bring the earth to its knees, it must be stopped.

  12. Piero says:

    Oooh take me, naked Goddess of luck take me!
    By the way it’s ages that I try, but I fear there’s a bug that prevents it…
    I definitely would beat to death Minsc with Boo, his IRREMOVABLE, slot-abusive-occupant, miniature giant space hamster!

  13. Paul Kane says:

    I have this book, and can say it is great! If you don’t win it buy it. If you do win it, buy Gavin’s other books!

  14. Ade Couper says:

    This looks interesting…..if I don’t win it, I’ll buy it!

    Crossing the fingers… and toes…
