Android Karenina Giveaway!!!!

I went to BEA'10 (Book Expo America) and I had tons of fun!!! A bigger post is coming up soon but right now I just want to let you, my dear readers know that I didn't forget about you while attending the Expo.

Today is International Children's Day, mostly celebrated in Europe. We are all somebody's children and in honor of that I have a super duper giveaway.

Android Karenina (Quirk Classic)Ben H. Winters, the author of Android Karenina was gracious enough to sign one copy of his book just so I can give it to one lucky winner. If you read or heard of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, then you'll know what's coming your way. But in case you don't, here's a synopsis from Quirk Classics:

 Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters coauthor Ben H. Winters is back with an all-new collaborator, legendary Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy, and the result is Android Karenina: an enhanced edition of the classic love story set in a strange new world of robots, cyborgs, and interplanetary travel.

As in the original novel, our story follows two relationships: the tragic adulterous romance of Anna Karenina and Count Alexei Vronsky, and the much more hopeful marriage of Nikolai Levin and Kitty Shcherbatskaya. These four, yearning for true love, live in a steampunk-inspired 19th century of mechanical butlers, extraterrestrial-worshiping cults, and airborne debutante balls. Their passions alone would be enough to consume them—but when a secret cabal of radical scientific revolutionaries launches an attack on Russian high society’s high-tech lifestyle, our heroes must fight back with all their courage, all their gadgets, and all the power of a sleek new cyborg model like nothing the world has ever seen.

Filled with the same blend of romance, drama, and fantasy that made the first two Quirk Classics New York Times best sellers, Android Karenina brings this celebrated series into the exciting world of science fiction.


If that doesn't sound fun, then I don't know what does.
