Win a year's worth of speculative fiction titles!

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you! I'm giving away 55 speculative fiction titles of basically every subgenre out there, which amounts to more than a book to read every week for the next year!

The catch: I don't have enough money to pay for postage, so the winner will have to either come pick up the books (meaning that you are within driving distance of the Greater Montreal Area), or he or she must be willing to pay for shipping (at least 50$-75$ in Canada, and more elsewhere). Sorry, but I was about to donate those novels to a local library and I decided to make someone very happy instead. Hence, DO NOT register unless you are able to come and get the prize pack or pay for postage.

The prize pack includes:

TPB: Trade Paperback
PB: Mass Market Paperback

Hey Pat, did you see the Malazan site is gone? Yikes!

Patrick said...

Yeah, since yesterday. But I'm sure it's only temporary...

Hopefully!

Probably bandwidth issues because of that Hawt Girlz thread. :)

I'd love to get those books but I'm afraid shipping to Germany would cost as much as ordering those I don't have yet from Amazon.de where I can get them free of shipping. ;)

@Gabriel
I don't have any of them yet, hmmmm, if I win I could send you the ones I'm missing and hopefully make some money back on shipping ;)

teresa said...

Crap. I so want this. So how do people send the money if they won? Paypal? Western Union?

dacole said...

Oh my word....I have never won a contest here man if this was my first I think I would die. I have only 1 of these books and many I would love to own. The star wars books don't do much for me but the rest would at least be interesting to read (and who knows maybe the star wars ones will be better than I think) you should have an interview with the person who wins...so they can tell you they are naming their first child after you ;).

kyodnb said...

yes ..i`m curios..how could we pay if we are from other countries and we win:D?or, at least we want to win something:)

Patrick said...

Payment would either have to be via Paypal or with an international money order (which you can get from your bank).
