I was at the Gollancz Autumn Party last night and right now I am paying for the 'Ooh free beer, I think I'll have another one' approach that I was taking. Either there's still some anti-biotics still hanging around inside me or I'm more of a lightweight than I thought... (I'm certainly not in the same league as certain people who looked like they were warming up for some serious drinking as I was leaving...)
It was a great evening though and I'm definitely going to try and get myself in next year...
All this has left me in a position where I haven't finished reading anything for review (although Scalzi's 'The Last Colony' and Graham Joyce's 'The Tooth Fairy' are both shaping up to look very good indeed) but last night helped me come up with ideas for a couple of giveaways that I think you'll like... :o)
Peter V. Brett's debut, 'The Painted Man', is one of those books that's having a lot of good stuff said about it. I should know as I'm one of the people who said those good things, have a look at my Review.
Harper Voyager have very kindly offered to give away five hardback (signed) copies to anyone who wants a copy. Are you one of these people? If you fancy your chances then simply drop me an email (address at the top right hand side of the screen) telling me who you are and what your mailing address is. This competition is open to anyone, it doesn't matter where you live!
If you're a Star Wars fan then you know all about the infamous Order 66. What you might not know though is the affect that it had on some of the clones in the Grand Army of the Republic. Karen Traviss lays it all on the line in her novel 'Order 66'. If you're a Star Wars fan then I don't think you can afford to miss out on this! You can read my review over Here.
Thanks to Orbit Books I have three copies of 'Order 66' to give away on the blog. If you want to be in with a chance then simply drop me an email (you know where the address is) telling me who you are and what your mailing address is. This giveaway is only open to people living in the UK and Europe, sorry about that!
You can enter for both competitions at the same time but it would really help me stay on top of things if you could send a seperate email for each entry. Also, please make it clear in your email header which competition you are entering.
I'll let these competitions run until next Friday (3rd October) and announce the winners on the following Saturday.
