GIVEAWAY: Eternal Sky by Elizabeth Bear

There are a very few authors who get me to lose my ever loving shit every time they publish a book, or look in my general direction.

(“Wow, Sarah,” you say. “That is the most professional thing you’ve ever said in the history of your website.”)

Elizabeth Bear is one of those authors.

On April 8th she is releasing the final book in her Eternal Sky Trilogy. This trilogy has very quickly turned into one of my favorite trilogies published in the history of the universe. I love Elizabeth Bear’s writing. She is an author I really get behind. She’s not only a hell of an writer, but she’s a hell of a woman. She’s kind, and vastly intelligent, and can write books that knock me out with power.

So…. her series is ending, which makes me very, very sad, but her publicist at Tor asked if I wanted to do a giveaway of the ENTIRE TRILOGY and I wrote her back in about two seconds flat saying:


Yup, that’s a direct quote. I am so excited to do this giveaway because I love this series so much. It thrills me half to death to share something I love so much with someone else.

Here are the contest rules:

1. Open to the United States and Canada only (sorry, everyone else).

2. You have until Wednesday, April 9 at midnight Mountain Time to enter.

3. To enter, leave a comment on this post.

4. As usual, one lucky winner will be randomly chosen by someone I work with who has no idea what I’m asking them to do. That winner will be notified via email. Once I get your shipping address, I’ll send it to Tor and three amazing books should arrive in your mailbox soon.

So there you go. Enter my giveaway!

Good luck to all of you!

    I love Elizabeth Bear! This series is amazing, possibly her best novels to date (along with The Deptford Man set). I am so excited that the third one is out. I would love to own these books. I am lucky to have a great library so I could read the first two.

  • To quote a blogger, “OH MY GOD I SO WANT TO WIN THE GIVEAWAY!!!”

  • Awesome. This series has been on my to-read list for a while (I’ve lost count of the people saying “Read it. Now.”). What better way to start reading them? Thanks!

And for a set of these books, it’s totally worth the chance (or so I hear; I haven’t actually read any of the series yet, but I’ve heard people praise it to no end, so I really do want to).
