First off, the winner of the book CUTTLEFISH is:
If you enjoy reading steampunk, you’ve probably read Mark Hodder (Burton and Swinburne series).
This is a tale exploring good and evil and how nothing (or anyone) is as it seems. Aiden Fleischer is a bookish priest and Clarissa an outcast hunchback who are transported to an alien world. There they encounter the Yatsil, a supposedly peaceful race of mimics. Then the red sun rises, bringing with it the forces of destruction.
Hodder’s twisted take on an alien version of Victorian London is vivid and imaginative, while the psychological twists and turns push the genre with amazing results.
But don’t take my word for it. PYR will graciously give away three ARCS of A Red Sun Also Rises to give away (North American only) and I’ll give away my own ARC to an international winner. Contest closes October 7th at 11:59 PM PST.
If you lived on an alien world that could shape itself to any place in any time, which would you chose and why?
