The Best of All Possible Worlds and The Snowmelt River

Congratulations to Kim, the winner of last week’s giveaway, who is looking forward to Swords of Good Men by Icelandic author Snorri Kristjansson. Kim did not provide a website, twitter, Facebook, tumblr or anything, so Kim please get in touch via comment or twitter or something so I can get your details to have the books sent to you.

On a related note, Adam B Shaeffer, you have won some books and you have not replied to my twitter DM! Please get in touch! I need your mailing address.

Selecting a winner got a little complicated last week. I had two commenters on Goodreads, where this blog has a feed. I completely forgot that people can comment there as well. I did factor them into the draw, but for this final giveaway please comment on if you wish to enter.

And yes, this is the fifth and final Thursday Giveaway. The winner will get The Best of All Possible Worlds (hardback)

The Best of All Possible Worlds (UK edition)

plus another Jo Fletcher Books title:

The Snowmelt River, by Frank P. Ryan (paperback).


On the summit of the fabled mountain Slievenamon in Ireland there is a doorway to an ancient land of terrible power. The gate of Feimhin has lain closed for centuries, the secret of its opening long lost.

But now four orphans drawn together by Fate must pass through the portal to face their destinies. What they find beyond is the enchanted but war-ravaged world of Tír, a strange land peopled by beings of magic. Here death waits at every corner and they must learn to fight if they are to survive.

And they’d better learn quickly, because their enemy, the Tyrant of the Wastelands, is growing in power.

To enter the competition, comment on this post and tell me … hmm … let’s make it interesting.

I’ve been too busy to update, but there are a lot of things out there. Comment and tell me the title of any short story, interview or guest post of mine that you’ve seen (or will see!) over the past few weeks and up to next week Wednesday. So far there are at least five; there will be more by next week. And no, SF Crossing the Gulf doesn’t count.

If you wish, add your twitter name, tumblr or blog url. I’ll randomly choose a winner from the comments next Wednesday night (around 8pm GMT-4), and announce the name in a post that same night. 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.

  1. I really liked your article about being asked how it is to be a writer from another culture. I think it was on the huffington post.
    I’m MIcah. I have and @Do_What on twitter. 🙂

  2. I read your article, ‘Writer from An Other Culture’, on Huffington Post. I loved your light metaphor. My twitter is @rsagarcia, and my website is As a Caribbean spec fic author, I look forward to reading your book, whether I win it or buy it :-). Congrats on all the good reviews and publicity! I wish you every success.

  3. I loved how thought-provoking the ‘Writer from an Other Culture’ was. @bloghappy
    are US residents qualified for the competition? Whether we are or are not, congrats on the book release. Sounds fascinating as has been on my wishlist.

  4. I saw “Writer from an Other Culture” on Huffington. It was really interesting. Also, I recognize it doesn’t count for the purposes of this giveaway, but I am awfully happy that SF Crossing the Gulf is back again.

  5. I literally have just read Writer From Another Culture. I must say I did enjoy it greatly. I keep hearing a lot about your works and Iam very intrigued to read your works
