Giveaway: Cold Redemption/The Last Bastion (13/4/2015)

Not much news this week. I’m going to be at Edge-Lit on Saturday 11th July doing a workshop on narrative structure and a panel on something or other that has currently slipped my . . . Ok, the title is “How Much History Does Fantasy Fiction Need,” and I can give you the very short answer if you’re not going which is that fantasy doesn’t strictly need very much at all, but you should still come along anyway because Joanne Harris is going to be on the panel too and she will be much more interesting than I am.

BUY MY BOOKS: Gallow: The Anvil. Gallow: Solace. Why haven’t you got them already? They’re cheap and short!

Ren, I’ve got another Critical Failures post on the way about relationships but it’s turning out to be long and complicated and not as much about fiction as I originally thought, so you’ll have to wait a few weeks. Also Zafir has something more to say about villains yet. In the mean time I’m still in a Gallow frame of mind, so this week I’m giving away more Gallow.

Usual deal – comment on this post in some way before Sunday 19th  April and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy. This week I’m looking for video game recommendations, please, since I appear to have quite a bit of time on my hands.

No one has complained (so far) about how long it takes me to get to the post office and post things, but 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. Am currently up to date with posting things (it’s so much easier when I don;t do my own stuff – Gollancz are dead efficient, unlike me).

    Hey Stephen, I’m not sure where I’m going to be in July, if I’m not so far away, like, Scotland, then I’ll look into attending the seminar.

    You asked about video games, well, I’ll recommend Phsy-ops, it was a game I played back in the early 2000’s on my Playstaton 2. I’m sure an ebay search will find it coming your way.

    Hi Stephen, If you’re on a PC give Cities: Skylines a go which is a revamped Sim City and should keep you occupied for a long while.. Ta, Joe

    I’m in a classic game and theme buzz so really enjoying Age of Mythology. Great fun and aged very well

    Just cause 2. I know its old, but gliding around the huge world with a parchute/grappling hook combo. I love it!

  5. Mango Heroics says:

    Have you tried Civilization? We got Spore a while back, but I didn’t like it, so I can’t recommend it. I don’t seem to have any extra time, so I haven’t looked at any new ones lately.

    Guess I’ll be seeing you at Edge-Lit ????

  7. Stephen Deas says:
