Win a copy of George R. R. Washington's A GAME OF GROANS

I'm giving away my copy of George R. R. Washington's A Game of Groans, an ASOIAF parody. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

‘There was a bloodied knife on Allbran’s bed. Lady Gateway Barker knew what she had to do; what all the royals in Summerseve did when somebody tried to kill a member of their family: gather up a bunch of people and horses, and go from one place to another.’ 

In the land of the Eight (or was it Six?) Kingdoms – where seasons can last decades and comparisons to Tolkien a lifetime – trouble is brewing. For the Barkers of Summerseve, times are about to get as tough as the pronunciation of ‘Daenerys Targaryen’. 

From this world of outdoor fornication with horse-people (and indoor fornication with blood relatives) comes an epic story of novella proportions as the Barkers, their BFFs, and their enemies strive to star in that funniest of concepts: a parody of George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones.

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

That looks painfully unfunny. Too bad, so much potential...

I'll admit to chuckling through much of that, but an entire book? Small doses people.

Seems to me as the author is trying to make some money in the great shadow of GRRM's success. I even go so far that this is the result of the TV series, not the books. Maybe the author never heard of GRRM before he saw it on TV.

If the blurb indicates the style of the content then this is a ridiculous and not in the least funny effort. Hopefully it is not as insulting as I think it is.

There were some hilarious satires of LotR, which were earned. But I doubt ASoIaF is the right stuff for such a thing.

Why would anyone in their right mind EVER want to read this kind of garbage?

All I can say is I hope the author actually makes some money for what I would consider a colossal waste of effort.

It just seems so pointless...
