If you're a regular reader of this blog, it may have dawned upon you that I'm what you could call a HUGE fan of Steven Erikson's The Malazan Book of the Fallen.
Well, with the release of Reaper's Gale just around the corner, there will be quite a few things done around here to promote the author and his work. You probably know by now that I have a sweet spot for Erikson, and I'll do everything I can to get as many people as humanly possible to read his fantastic series.
It all started with my book review of Reaper's Gale, the first one out there, and it seems that it has generated quite a positive buzz. If you haven't pre-ordered this seventh volume, what are you waiting for!?!
I will be sending my questions to Erikson this week, so expect a new interview with the author in the near future. The same goes for Ian Cameron Esslemont!:-)
Furthermore, in order to get more and more readers interested in the Malazan series, in the next few days I will have two full paperback sets up for grabs! Which means that two lucky winners will get their hands on Gardens of the Moon, Deadhouse Gates, Memories of Ice, House of Chains, Midnight Tides and The Bonehunters, compliments of Transworld.
Hundreds of people have already registered to The Lees of Laughter's End and Reaper's Gale giveaways, and there's still time for you to do so if you haven't entered those contests yet. Later in April, keep your eyes peeled because I will also have 5 copies of Esslemont's Night of Knives for you to win!
And the icing on the cake: I was notified today that there will be a limited edition of Reaper's Gale, and I will have a copy up for grabs!;-)
Last spring, after reviewing In the Eye of Heaven and giving it an okay score, I still ran a contest for the book and did an interview with the author. What can I say!?! Gotta support my fellow Canucks! Anyway, David Keck wondered what I would do if I really liked something. I guess he now has his answer. . .;-)
