I love novellas. Tor.com loves novellas. We have so much in common, I sometimes wish we could run off together. (Of course, you know how these internet infatuations end up. I’m emotionally needy, and Tor.com is such a workaholic… it would all end in tears. But you know it’d be beautiful while it lasted.)
Our love may be doomed, but there’s no reason someone shouldn’t end up happy. And I think it should be you. To help make that happen, Black Gate and Tor.com have teamed up to give away copies of all three of their March releases:
The Devil You Know, K. J. Parker (126 pages, $10.99, March 1) — cover by Jon Foster (reveal, excerpt)
Forest of Memory, Mary Robinette Kowal (88 pages, $9.99, March 8) — cover by Victo Ngai (reveal, excerpt)
Pieces of Hate, Tim Lebbon (148 pages, $12.99, March 15) — cover by Gene Mollica (reveal, excerpt)
How do you make one of them yours? Nothing could be simpler! Just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Tor.com contest,” and a one-sentence review of your all-time favorite novella.
That’s all it takes! Three winners will be drawn at random from all qualifying entries, and each one will receive one of the above titles. We’ll reprint some of the best reviews when we announce the winners.
All entries become the property of New Epoch Press. No purchase necessary. Must be 12 or older. Decisions of the judges (capricious as they may be) are final. Not valid where prohibited by law, or anywhere postage for a trade paperback is more than, like, 10 bucks (practically, that means US only).
For more details on any of the novellas above (or any of the previous volumes in the series), check out Tor.com‘s online catalog:
