Giveaway! 'The Quantum Thief (Hannu Rajaniemi)
And now, back to the post at hand...
'The Quantum Thief' is a book that I've got on the go at the moment and I hope to bring you a review sometime next week. In the meantime, how do you fancy having a crack at winning a copy for yourself? Check out the blurb first...
Jean le Flambeur is a post-human criminal, mind burglar, confidence artist, and trickster. His origins are shrouded in mystery, but his exploits are known throughout the Heterarchy— from breaking into the vast Zeusbrains of the Inner System to stealing rare Earth antiques from the aristocrats of Mars. Now he’s confined inside the Dilemma Prison, where every day he has to get up and kill himself before his other self can kill him.
Rescued by the mysterious Mieli and her flirtatious spacecraft, Jean is taken to the Oubliette, the Moving City of Mars, where time is currency, memories are treasures, and a moon-turnedsingularity lights the night. What Mieli offers is the chance to win back his freedom and the powers of his old self—in exchange for finishing the one heist he never quite managed.
As Jean undertakes a series of capers on behalf of Mieli and her mysterious masters, elsewhere in the Oubliette investigator Isidore Beautrelet is called in to investigate the murder of a chocolatier, and finds himself on the trail of an arch-criminal, a man named le Flambeur….
Thanks to Tor, I have one copy of 'The Quantum Thief' to give away to one lucky reader (US entrants only, sorry everyone else). How do you enter? Exactly the same way that you would have entered yesterday's competition, scroll down the page a little ;o) The only difference is that the subject header of your email needs to be 'Quantum Thief'.
I'll leave this one open until the 3rd of July and will aim to announce the winner as soon as possible afterwards.
