Giveaway; War in Heaven (26/10/2014)

It’s SF season here at the moment, we Elite out a couple of weeks back and Empires next month and a proposal in the works for something with another SF bent. Edits for all of next year’s titles are now done all bar the shouting and a bit of polishing.

Speaking of dragons, The Splintered Gods has a review from Falcatta Times:

“The writing is always to the point, it gets to the meat of the matter and with some of the subtle hints and wordplay within generates a story that is pretty unique out there.”

Anyway, none of you came here to hear about that, so on to business. Since Empires is coming out next month, it’s probably about time I started giving away a lot of Gavin Smith SF again (we wrote Empires together), on account of the imagined loss of sales annoying him greatly. This week I have two copies of War In Heaven for the taking.

Usual deal – comment on this post before November 2nd  and I’ll randomly select two lucky victims for free copies. This week we’re playing Bad Alien Invasion Supermarket, so you need your comment to come up with something to do with bad alien invasions, by which I mean stupid stuff that make no sense which one might encounter in bad alien invasion stories, and the comments have to be in alphabetical order. So for example, A is for Androids with Off Buttons, B is for Bloody Hell, Lasers Are Not Visible In A Vacuum, etc… You get the picture. You can stretch the the alphabetical point as far as it will go, but if you don’t play the game, your entry is VOID. HAHAHAHAHAAAAA.

You can enter as may times as you like but I’ll count the first two entries – the rest are just for fun and showing off.  Extra points for humour and originality and just for once I’ll throw in an Angry Dragons mug if you make me laugh, smirk or otherwise amuse me.

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.
