Win a year's worth of speculative fiction books!


Yep, it's the house clearance giveaway! I'm moving into a new apartment in a few weeks, so I need to get rid of some books before doing so. So I'll make one of you guys VERY happy!

The Catch: Read this: Before your mouth waters at the thought of winning all those books, please bear in mind that I can't pay for postage. If you don't live in the Greater Montreal Area or if you don't live within driving distance, you'd have to pay for the shipping charges. So do the math, for I can't afford to pay for shipping. If you live in Australia, it will likely cost you a couple of hundreds of dollars. . . Please understand this before registering.

The prize pack includes recent and not-so-recent titles, as well as books that are not even out yet. I tried to come up with a good mix of genres and sub-genres.

And I'm throwing a copy of the trade hardcover edition of the Speculative Horizons anthology into the mix!

This should keep whoever wins out of trouble for a little while. . .:P As was the case the last time we did this, more surprise titles will be added to the mix as I receive them between now and the random draw which will select the winner.

The rules are the same as usual. You need to send an email at reviews@(no-spam)gryphonwood.net with the header "HOLIDAY JACKPOT." 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.

Good luck to all the participants!

An amazing prize! I live just a little to far away to collect though, not owning an yacht to sail the Atlantic. Good luck to the entrants. I'll be envious of the lucky git that wins it.

Rebecca said...

Is there an online tool to calculate postage from you, based on the weight of the books? I would like to win, but I am a girl of limited means...

Walter Rhein said...

How much do all those books weigh?

Anonymous said...

Wow that's about 10 years worth for me.

Chris said...

Well being dutch I did the math, then forgot it.. Because I would totally want those books!

Patrick said...

Hmmm, the books probably weigh about 100 pounds, or something like that...

valerie said...

I wish I lived in Montreal. Lucky SOB who wins this jackpot!

M said...

Well, I am interested and have put my name in. I sent to the email address reviews@gryphonwood.net; I hope that's correct (not sure what "remove the spam-thingy means).

You don't say whether the books are new, or have been read?

Anonymous said...

If I win, may I pick and choose which books I want and second place can get the rest?

Thanks,
Troy

Hi Pat, roughly where abouts would the books be sent from, so I can get an idea of the shipping cost to UK were I to win
Cheers
