Week 7 of the Great Book Giveaway: enter and get another free short story!

Neil from Saskatoon was the winner of last week’s book giveaway. Now it’s time to start Week 7.

The rules remain the same. Simply comment on this post, reply to one of the posts I’ll put on Facebook on both my Edward Willett and E.C. Blake pages, or reTweet one of the Tweets I’ll post on Twitter @AuthorECBlake, @ewillett, and @LeeArthurChane. Next Saturday I’ll tally up all the entries, do a draw, and I’ll send the winner the book of his choice from this list (with a couple of exceptions–I don’t have copies of absolutely everything). Fiction or non-fiction, his/her choice!

Je Me Souviens art for Press BooksThis week every entrant receives an ebook version (I’ll send mobi, epub and PDF files) of my short story “Je Me Souviens.”

“Je Me Souviens” originally appeared in the Summer 2002 issue of Artemis Magazine, and received an Honorable Mention in The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Twentieth Annual Collection, edited by Gardner Dozois. It was reprinted in the moon-themed anthology Ride the Moon (Tyche Books). Along the way, it picked up a couple of nice reviews:

“This quiet story was laced with melancholy and full of dignity.” — Greg Beatty, Tangent Online

“…the most overtly spiritual of the issue’s septet of stories and also the most lyrically written…a commendable tale, quite effective in showing both the subjectivity of progress and the sad, ultimate ethereality of tradition.” — Daniel E. Blackston, Firebrand Fiction Reviews, SFreader.com

So, to recap, enter to win a free book, and receive a great short story. What have you got to lose?

      Thanks, Laura. FWIW, Shadowpaw is a Siberian, some of which are very low in allergens–my wife is allergic and is living very happily with Shadowpaw. Some breeders are trying to breed for low allergens, but it still seems a bit hit or miss. Wonderful cats, anyway!
