Congratulations to Aliette de Bodard, third commenter and winner of last week’s giveaway! She chose Valerio Varesi’s The Dark Valley, a Quercus title which was shortlisted for the CWA International Dagger in 2012.
Today is the release date for the UK edition of The Best of All Possible Worlds!
To celebrate, there will be two winners chosen from this post. Each winner will get copies of both Redemption in Indigo (paperback) and The Best of All Possible Worlds (hardback).
Comment on this post and tell me which Jo Fletcher Books science fiction titles (forthcoming or already published) are on your to-read list. If you wish, add your twitter name, tumblr or blog url. Next Wednesday night (around 8pm GMT-4), I’ll randomly choose two winners from the comments. I’ll announce the names in my new Thursday Book Giveaway post. The books will be sent directly from Jo Fletcher Books in London, so if you win I will need your address to pass on to them.

I’ve got copies of The Demi-Monde: Winter and Spring by Rod Rees. Thanks for the giveaway 🙂
I usually don’t enter these things, but goodness, I want a chance at the hard copies. Aside from your book, I have The Ravenglass Eye on my list. @rcloenenruiz
Okay, so this is going to seem like such a suck up answer, but the first that leaps to mind from that list is The Best of All Possible Worlds. I read Jo Walton’s review on Tor.com the other day and heard Strahan and Wolfe talking about it on The Coode Street Podcast recently (or at least I *think* I did…been listening to a lot of podcasts lately) and I was already sold on checking it out. Also, even though I have a copy of Planes Runner I want this copy as well because I really like the cover art.
Congrats to whomever…whoever?…wins the books (fingers crossed)
Planes Runner, Demi Monde Summer and The Immortals of Meluha, cos I won them in a Jo Fletcher competition 🙂 I entered it cos I wanted to read Planes Runner anyway.
Also Redemption in Indigo, because I’ve heard it mentioned positively a lot.
*scans list*… and The Silver Bough, because I enjoyed Windhaven, which she co-wrote.
Oh, and the previous Demi Monde books, if necessary for reading Summer.
The Best of All Possible Worlds is first on my list, of course! Starting its blurb with “1900 BC” makes The Immortals of Meluha something I couldn’t possibly pass up, and how could I resist “cautionary tales of home renovation” in Home Improvement: Undead Edition. I’d also like to read The Secret of the Nagas, Curious Warnings, A Book of Horrors, and The Silver Bough.
hi karen, i’m writing to invite you to submit a story or excerpt to WomanSpeak, a Journal of Literature and Art by Caribbean Women, vol.7/2013. I believe your work will fit nicely in the “Fairytales” section of the journal. Please find the complete call for submissions and more info about the journal at my blog, womanishwords.blogspot.com and see a selection of work from vol.6 at tonguesoftheocean.org . many congratulations on all your writing successes. I look forward to hearing from you.
sincerely, Lynn Sweeting, editor
Aside from The Best of All Possible Worlds and Redemption in Indigo, I’m looking forward to Curious Warnings and The Glass Republic!
Oh man, I would love to win these books. I have heard such good things. So I guess your own books would be at the top of the list. But also the Glass Republic.
The Best of All Possible Worlds is at the top of my list! Currently reading The City’s Son, and The Glass Republic is on my wishlist. 😀
(Don’t know if posting through my twitter account gives you my email address, so just in case: branewurms at suddenlink dot net.)
Thanks to Niall at The Speculative Scotsman, _The Best of All Possible Worlds_ is on my list, as are Tom Pollock’s _City’s Son_ and Sarah Pinborough’s _Mayhem_.
My to-read list? Aidan Harte’s Irenicon, Ian McDonald’s Planesrunner, and Evie Manieri’s Blood’s Pride – if we exclude The Best of All Possible Worlds.
Oh, apart from yours, I enjoyed Ian McDonald’s “Planesrunner” and am keen for the next one, “Be My Enemy”.
Lisa Tuttle’s “The Silver Bough” looks pretty interesting, as well!
Apar from The Best of all Possible options, my list includes The Swords of Good Men and Blood’s Pride. Loved Redemption in Indigo, liked the Emperor’s Knife and the Mayhem is waiting in the (far too big ) TBR pile.
