Giveaway! 'Busted Flush' (Edited by George R.R. Martin)
I've got a mid-year review, for work, today so another day is going by without a book review. They will be back though, they're coming... ;o)
In the meantime this should hopefully make up for things! I've got two advance copies of George R.R. Martin's 'Busted Flush' (thanks to Tor Books in the US), a 'Wild Cards' collection featuring all the Aces that burst onto the scene in 'Inside Straight' last year. I'll be picking this one up next week and am looking forward to getting stuck in. Here's the synopsis from Amazon...
In 1946, an alien virus that rewrites human DNA was accidentally unleashed in the skies over New York City. It killed ninety percent of those it infected. Nine percent survived to mutate into tragically deformed creatures. And one percent gained superpowers. The Wild Cards shared-universe series, created and edited since 1987 by New York Times #1 bestseller George R. R. Martin ("The American Tolkien" --Time magazine) along with Melinda Snodgrass, is the tale of the history of the world since then—and of the heroes among the one percent.
Now a new generation of heroes has taken its place on the world stage, its members crucial players in international events. At the United Nations, veteran ace John Fortune has assembled a team of young aces known as the Committee, to assist at trouble spots around the world–including a genocidal war in the Niger Delta, an invasion of zombies in hurricane ravaged New Orleans, and a freak nuclear explosion in a small Texas town.
Does this sound like your thing? Do you want a copy? Simply drop me an email (address in the top right hand corner) telling me who you are and what your mailing address is, entering is that simple :o) There's another competition going on (see below) so you need to make it clear, in your email header, that this is the book you're after.
Unfortunately this giveaway is only open to US residents, sorry! I'll let this one run until next Friday night (26th September) and announcing the winners on the following Saturday...
