Lookie lookie (and free books!)


So, last week, the post office sends us a message saying that they tried to deliver a bulky package to our home, but couldn’t because the mailbox was too small. I’ve been burnt before at this game, so I cajoled the H into going to pick it up at the post office.
Best idea I ever had, because this is what the package looked like:

After a lot of fighting the thing with scissors, I opened it, and behold:
Books, books

I have my contrib copies of Master of the House of Darts!

To celebrate, I’m giving away ten copies of the book. 5 are up at Goodreads (and I’ll note the giveaway is available worldwide). Another 5 are up for grabs here: the difference with the Goodreads ones is that I’m trading those for a review of the book posted on your blog or on amazon (I have a slight pref. for amazon because the book hasn’t been getting a lot of signal boost, but do post wherever you want on the Internet, and whatever you feel about the book–more than a few sentences, of course–and you’re obviously free to say if you didn’t like it). First come, first served. I’ll sign and personalise them if you so require.

Memo: you don’t have to have read the previous books in the trilogy to make sense of this one; it’s a standalone like an episode of a crime series, though obviously character arcs get wrapped (last book of the trilogy, yadda yadda). Post here or in the LJ mirror if you want to give a copy a good home.

ETA: wow, thanks everyone! All copies offered through aliettedebodard.com are gone now, but you can still get the ones from goodreads by entering the giveaway, as indicated above (you have until January 8th).


  1. I’ve love to read that and then later post a review on amazon.

  2. Oh, I would love a copy! I am receiving the first two for Christmas (my sister can’t keep a secret, LOL) and I will be more than happy to post reviews of all three at amazon and LJ. Thanks for offering the contest!

  3. You don’t have to ask me twice. I’ll acquire a copy and review it even if I don’t win…right after I do the same for Harbinger. Good stuff, Aliette. Congrats!

  4. Oh oh me me me! 😀 I’ll do reviews on Amazon, GoodReads, and do a shout-out on my blog! 😀

  5. Despite our small readership, I guarantee a thought provoking, hilarious, and yet sensitive review. It will probably be positive too, since I enjoy your writing. Also perfectly willing to post Amazon reviews through our bookstore account!

  6. Thank you so much!
    It comes up to a little more than 5 copies because of the other people on LJ, but since I have a lot of copies and they’re cluttering my living room… Why don’t you all email me your addresses (and who you’d like them signed to?). Email aliettedb AT yahoo DT com, or go through my website contact form.
