Win a copy of the 10th anniversary edition of Steven Erikson's GARDENS OF THE MOON


Thanks to the kind folks at Transworld, I have five copies of the 10th anniversary edition of the opening chapter in one of the greatest fantasy epics of our time, The Malazan Book of the Fallen, up for grabs! 'Nuff said! For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

The Malazan Empire is a continent-spanning dominion over which the ruthless Empress Laseen holds sway, her rule enforced by the Claws, the Imperial assassins. Bled dry by incessant warfare and undermined by dissension, signs indicate that the Empire could be crumbling from within.

The Genabackis campaign has been a war of attrition in which the Malazans have spent years fighting the combined forces of local armies aided by the formidable Son of Darkness and Lord of the Tiste Andii, Anomander Rake, the Crimson Guard, the powerful warlord Caladan Brood, and their allies.

Though they emerge victorious from the siege of Pale and impel the flying fortress of Moon’s Spawn to retreat and abandon the conflict, the Malazan triumph is bittersweet. Evidence implies that the Bridgeburners were nearly wiped out by treacherous elements from within the ranks of their own army.

Before any light can be shed on what truly occurred, the Malazan troops are sent marching to subdue Darujhistan, the last of the Free Cities of Genabackis. Soon, as the conflict escalates, powerful forces converge on Darujhistan.

And with gods and Ascendants watching and manipulating events, nothing is as it seems in the City of Blue Fire.

Thus begins The Malazan Book of the Fallen, one of the greatest and most ambitious fantasy epics of our time.

And if you haven't given this series a chance yet, I urge you to do so! Get the books at the library, or buy them used if you are strapped for cash, but put a little Malazan in your life!

man I really like this series, but I want to like it alot more than I do. This could have been THE epic series for SFF fans. However, even with its flaws its still pretty awesome. TTH was a SLOG. There I said it, I hope DoD is better it looks like it is, being in America I won't get it til Jan.

I found GoTM to be dry the first time I read it, had to force myself to get through about the halfway point. Once I did though, I enjoyed it and just continued to enjoy the following books more and more. I'm currently on book 6 of my second time reading the series, in preparation of book 9, and unlike most series, I'm enjoying it MUCH, MUCH more the second time!

This is just awesome!! I have not read this series yet, but I want to dig in very, very badly. I am hoping to win a copy of this. I am going to dive into this series in the new year. I have heard so many great things on this and it sounds soooo like a read I would truly enjoy.

I just got to reading this series, I'm just finishing GOTM and it's pretty rad. I'm hoping when I get further in the series there's more about the T'lan Imass. ANyway, I should burn through these pretty quick :)

Is there only a new edition for the first tome, or is this 10th anniversay edition for all the series ?

I've just finished a re-read of the first 8 books plus the ICE Malazan Novels and have just started Dust of Dreams (in which the first chapter is a cracker!). I loved it the first time round but I agree with RandomZ - the second time is even better! It's taken me about 4 months to read it all but man it was worth it - I actually know & remember (mostly!) what is going on. Anyone who hasn't read this series do not hesitate, do it now!
