Win a full set of Daniel Abraham's The Long Price Quartet

The news that Tor Books elected not to publish a mass market paperback edition for Daniel Abraham's The Price of Spring created a bit of a stir among the online SFF community last week. Understandably, no matter how unjust it appears to be, folks need to remember that it's a business decision on Tor Books' part, just as splitting A Memory of Light into three volumes was a business decision. Still, it must have felt like a kick in the balls for the author.

Personally, I like Daniel Abraham. He's a good guy, and the genre needs more open authors like him. And since Orbit hasn't dropped the ball on him yet, I got in touch with his publicist to see if we could set up something to put his name back into a more positive light.

And I'm happy to announce that I have two sets of both UK edition omnibuses of The Long Price Quartet up for grabs! The prize pack includes:

- Shadow and Betrayal (Europe), which includes A Shadow in Summer (Canada, USA) and A Betrayal in Winter (Canada, USA)

- Seasons of War (Europe), which includes An Autumn War (Canada, USA) and The Price of Spring (Canada, USA)

If enough readers give Abraham a shot, perhaps Tor Books will reconsider their decision. After all, George R. R. Martin gave this quote about the series: "If there's any justice, this should be a contender for all the major awards."

The rules are the same as usual. You need to send an email at reviews@(no-spam) with the header "SEASONS OF WAR." 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!

Daniel Abraham is easily one of my favorite authors. The Long Price Quartet is amazing and I can't wait to get my hands on The Dagger and the Coin.
