I'm not with you this week. At least physically. Or would it be virtually? In any event I'm here with you at least spiritually as I'm on vacation and most likely reading. It has been a busy summer what with ALL THE THINGS needing doing and myriad plans that have kept me away from postings as much as I would have liked. To make up for that and this week I thought a giveaway was in order. This will be a triple header giveaway with the first two from duplicate review copies I received and the other is the well...the other... Anyway here you go.
Shadow Show is the Ray Bradbury tribute anthology I've mentioned before. I've read more than half the stories so far and it has thus far been one of the finest tribute works I've ever read. Even better than the Jack Vance tribute. And there are some major hitters in this: Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, Joe Hill, Dave Eggers, Harlan Ellison, Alice Hoffman, Audrey Niffenegger, Ramsey Campbell, Robert McCammon, Dan Chaon, Kelly Link, Charles Yu to name but a few.
The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities edited by Ann & Jeff VanderMeer is so much more than an anthology. It is a treasure and one I've been loathe to read quickly preferring to dip in at different places for just a taste of what it has to offer. Some of the contributors include: Alan Moore, Lev Grossman, Mike Mignola, China Mieville, Cherie Priest, Carrie Vaughn, Garth Nix, Michael Moorcock , Holly Black, Jeffrey Ford, and Ted Chiang. This isn't Steampunk. This isn't Weird. This is pure Lambshead.
Let's call this the mystery giveaway. When you e-mail to enter the contest also include your favorite genre from Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, Urban Fantasy, Steampunk, or Paranormal Romance. What you'll win is at least 3 books from that genre from my collection. It could be the latest release or it could be something older from my collection, but in very good condition.
To enter any of the giveaways email madhatterreview (AT) gmail (dot) com with your full name and snail mail address in the body and the name of the contest you'd like to enter in the subject line. Please send a separate e-mail for each contest you want to enter and remember the extra info for the last giveaway. One submission per contest allowable, but multiple entries for the same giveaway will get you disqualified. The deadline is midnight September 1st. I'll announce the winners on the following day or as soon as I remember. This contest is open to the US only. The winner will be selected via random number generator per usual.
