Win a copy of Joe Abercrombie's THE HEROES

Thanks to the cool folks at Orbit, I have three copies of Joe Abercrombie's The Heroes for you to win! For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

They say Black Dow’s killed more men than winter, and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls. The King of the Union, ever a jealous neighbour, is not about to stand smiling by while he claws his way any higher. The orders have been given and the armies are toiling through the northern mud. Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they’ve brought a lot of sharpened metal with them.

Bremer dan Gorst, disgraced master swordsman, has sworn to reclaim his stolen honour on the battlefield. Obsessed with redemption and addicted to violence, he’s far past caring how much blood gets spilled in the attempt. Even if it’s his own.

Prince Calder isn’t interested in honour, and still less in getting himself killed. All he wants is power, and he’ll tell any lie, use any trick, and betray any friend to get it. Just as long as he doesn’t have to fight for it himself.

Curnden Craw, the last honest man in the North, has gained nothing from a life of warfare but swollen knees and frayed nerves. He hardly even cares who wins any more, he just wants to do the right thing. But can he even tell what that is with the world burning down around him?

Over three bloody days of battle, the fate of the North will be decided. But with both sides riddled by intrigues, follies, feuds and petty jealousies, it is unlikely to be the noblest hearts, or even the strongest arms that prevail…

Three men. One battle. No Heroes

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

Oh man, I want this. Started The Blade Itself last week, and I now have about a hundred pages left of Before They Are Hanged. The Last Argument of Kings is waiting on my bookshelf and Best Served Cold just arrived in the mail.

First read The Fool Jobs in that great anthology Sword & Dark Magic and I was very impressed. Such a fun fun author, great action scenes, great characters. Can't put it down.

Oh, and I was going to put down "Martin (May)". But damn do I love actually walking into a book store and picking his books up off the shelf (kind of a tradition!)

Jerkstores: Keep all your negativity to yourself! You can come back in May and spit in my face then.

(yes, you heard it here first...May 24th)
