Readercon giveaway

Come Late to the Love of Birds - Sandra Kasturi Chasing the Dragon - Nicholas Kaufmann Onward, Drake! - Mark L Van Name
Reblogged from Grimlock ♥ Inhumans:

US only because of S&H.

 

One winner, three books.  This will end on August 31st.   I'll use a random number generator, and just comment here. 

 

Come Late to the Love of Birds is one of my favorite poetry collections and is signed by the author.   Chasing the Dragon is one of my favorite ChiZine books - and possibly the first I ever read by them - and is also signed by the author.   Both are just flat signatures since I told them it was for a giveaway.   (Sandra gave me a look and goes 'don't you already own this.'  Yes, yes, I did.   She was more than happy to sell me a copy for this giveaway.   And I bought this and Chasing the Dragon.   They had so many copies of Onward, Drake which were from 2015 and labeled for another convention that I picked up another and am including it - but it is not signed, but it was a freebie that I'm passing along.)

 

Come Late to the Love of Birds: 

 

"Sandra's first collection, The Animal Bridegroom featured an introduction by Neil Gaiman and has sold out. This collection expands on her themes of abject romances, deformed fairytales gone and the astonishing delights of life in glorious 21st century.

Kasturi's latest poetry book fuses nature's continuous emotional offerings, our desire to understand ourselves with our passion to be free, devoid of the burden of modern thought."

Chasing the Dragon: 

 

"Centuries ago, St. George fought and killed a dragon—or so the legend goes.

The truth is somewhat different.

George failed in his mission, and the Dragon still walks the Earth, protected by an undead army, hiding in the shadows and slaughtering men, women, and children for its prey. Each of George's descendants through time has been tasked with killing the Dragon, and each has failed.

Twenty-five-year-old Georgia Quincey is the last of the line—the last, best hope for defeating the Dragon once and for all. But Georgia is also an addict, driven to the warm embrace of the needle by the weight of her responsibility and the loss of everything and everyone she has ever loved.

Tracking her nemesis to the small town of Buckshot, New Mexico for their final showdown, Georgia is about to discover the truth about the Dragon, a terrible secret that could put all life on Earth in peril."
