Winners of the Nightside, Gaiman/Pratchett, Charlie Huston and Tobias S. Buckell Giveaways!!! Plus, Misc. News...

Congratulations to Steve Gillette (Michigan), Mark Sanders (Canada), and Gard Kjøsen (Norway) who were all randomly selected to win a SET of Simon R. Green’s Nightside Omnibuses from Solaris Books, including copies of “Into the Nightside”, “Haunting the Nightside” and “The Dark Heart of the Nightside”!!!

Congratulations also to Alison Turner (United Kingdom), Billie Boyes (Minnesota) and Sandra Tole (Michigan) who were all randomly selected to win COPIES of both
Neil Gaiman’sThe Graveyard Book” and Terry Pratchett’sNation”, courtesy of HarperCollins Children’s Books!!! If you didn’t win, no worries :) Today is the official release date for both “The Graveyard Book” and “Nation”, so be sure to pick up a copy!

Congratulations also to Cathleen Nash (Illinois), Judie Dooley (Maine), and Steph Elias (Minnesota) who were all randomly selected to win a SET of
Charlie Huston’s Joe Pitt novels including copies of “Already Dead”, “No Dominion”, “Half the Blood of Brooklyn” and “Every Last Drop”, courtesy of Ballantine Books!!! “Every Last Drop” also comes out today and if you’ve been following the series, you’ll definitely want to pick this up. I finished reading the novel myself last week, and even though it’s mostly setup for the fifth and final Joe Pitt novel—which is going to be flat-out awesome by the way—the book is vintage Huston and you can’t get any better than that…

Lastly, congratulations to Kristin Munson (Rhode Island) who was randomly selected to win a SET of
Tobias S. Buckell’s science fiction novels including copies of “Crystal Rain” (Paperback), “Ragamuffin” (Paperback) and “Sly Mongoose”, courtesy of Tor Books!!!

In news, you may recall about this ‘First Contact’ story contest I blogged about
HERE. Well, the winners were recently announced and congrats to Dennis Lien (Minneapolis), Steven H. Silver (Deerfield, IL) and J. H. Woodyatt (San Francisco)! Each winner will receive a Limited Edition Chapbook that was issued to promote the publication of Ian R. MacLeod's short fiction collection “Breathmoss and Other Exhalations” (Golden Gryphon Press, 2004). The chapbook is autographed by author Ian R. MacLeod and superb cover artist Bob Eggleton! A very nice prize :) So thanks to everyone who submitted suggestions, and of course the person behind the contest, Marty Halpern

Finally, join “Blood Moon” author
A.W. Gryphon and Jeepers Creepers’ Jonathan Breck for an auction of celebrity collectibles, hosted by the Charity Folks organization, in support of the Entertainment Industry Foundations Women’s Cancer Programs.
