This is likely the most anticipated fantasy novel of the year. To all ends and purposes, Scott Lynch's The Lies of Locke Lamora appears to be a "can't miss" hit. I'll be reviewing it soon and I can't wait to see what the hype about this debut is all about.
The great people at Bantam Dell have agreed to support another contest, this one for a copy of The Lies of Locke Lamora. All you have to do is register. The lucky winner will get the book delivered to his mailbox the week of its release.
The rules are the same as usual. First off, you need to send an email at reviews@(no-spam)gryphonwoodpress.com with the header "LIES." Remember to remove the "no spam" thingy. Second, your email must contain your full mailing address (that's snail mail!), otherwise your message will be deleted.
Lastly, multiple entries will disqualify whoever sends them. And please include your screen name and the message boards that you frequent using it, if you do hang out on a particular MB.
For those you didn't know, there are three additional contests running at the moment. If you wish to win a signed copy of Robin Hobb's Shaman's Crossing, as well as signed bookplates of Forest Mage, just follow the same instructions but the header should read "FOREST MAGE." Those who would like to get their hands on a copy of Naomi Novik's Black Powder War, do the same thing, with a "WAR" header. Last but not least, for a signed copy of Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel's Scion, your header should be "SCION."
And before I go, I kindly remind you to participate to the Southern Comfort Challenge by clicking on the ads over the Google search bar. Scroll down below for the details concerning the Southern Comfort Challenge!;-) We have amassed all of 1,32$US thus far, which means that the day I'll savor a nice Southern Comfort/7-Up are a ways away! And they said you could make thousands of dollars with this thing!!! So click away, all of you!;-)
Good luck to all the participants!
