Win a Signed Copy of The Festival on Lyris Five!

As regular readers will know, The Festival on Lyris Five is my tongue-in-cheek science fiction novella, newly published by Salvatore Publishing.

You can find out more about the book, and read an extract from it, in my earlier blog post.

To celebrate the launch, I'm giving away a signed copy of the printed version of The Festival on Lyris Five, along with two copies of the downloadable (PDF) version for the runners-up.

To win, all you have to do is post the title and author of your favorite science fiction or fantasy book as a comment below, along with no more than 50 words about why you like it so much. I'm really hoping for some good recommendations for books to read myself in the coming months!

The contest is open to anyone in the world. The closing date is midnight GMT on Sunday 16 August. I will pick the winners at random from all qualifying entries, and announce the results on this blog on Monday 17 August. So you have just over a fortnight to get your entry in!

Good luck, and please do mention this contest to anyone else you think might like to enter.

A picutre-perfect life, dashed by lies. The 14-year-old in the center of this story flies--literally-- through a tumult of treachery, anger, abuse, and hatred on his way to justice and his dream--learning to fly.

Red Dwarf: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers

I have honestly never laughed so much from reading a book in my life. I loved the TV show but the book was so much better, my favourite bit is the hopper ride, comic genius and a definate must read.

Dragon's Egg: Theodore Sturgeon

This book was written decades ago and yet it is one of the most forward thinking books I have ever read. He challenges our very perceptions of physics and reality and offers a great story too. These old SF writers gave us 90% of our current technology lingo - if you've never read this book, or any work by TS, then remedy it!
