Q & A and blog contest

"Hadley Rille 5k"Hadley Rille Books is celebrating 5 years of publishing, and one of the things they’re doing is having a giveaway contest for a Kindle 3G. Clearly, I have a soft spot in my heart for this publisher, since Eric had the good taste to select stories I had written for two of his anthologies (Barren Worlds and Ruins Metropolis). The truth is, though, that they’ve published a lot of good writers, and they’re working on publishing more.

I’ve been looking at Lawrence Schoen’s Buffalito Destiny for a while, and his collection Sweet Potato Pie and Other Surrealities looks good, too. And there’s Push of the Sky by Camille Alexa, and Destination: Future, edited by Z.S. Adani and Eric Reynolds. Or The Best of Abyss & Apex. And I’m keeping my eyes out for Cate Gardner’s book, Theatre of Curious Acts, which isn’t even available for pre-order yet. Lots to choose from!

Which brings us to both the contest and the question for the week. Go look over the catalog of their books, browse, see what grabs you, maybe order something, then come back here and answer the following question: What one book from Hadley Rille would you most like to win?

One winner, to be announced December 6, will receive the book they want (trade paperback). Winner will be decided in a nice, low-tech, random fashion (either rolling of an appropriate polyhedral die or the traditional number drawn from a hat — with your number corresponding to your comment number in the thread for this post). Yes, I will ship anywhere.

This contest is actually staying open for a while — until December 3. (I’m planning to order a couple books for myself as a prize for completing NaNo this year, and it’s easier to order everything at once.)

Any questions, let me know. And please — support a great publisher. Oh, and leave your entry below.

  1. Transcendence looks promising.

  2. I would pick Ruins Metropolis. I was actually working on a story for that one, but couldn’t quite make the deadline (though I was still trying to edit it down when the magic moment passed… I fought it out to the end, but couldn’t finish in time). Anyway, it was a cool picture for that one, and I would love to see what various people did with it and if anyone else had a story with a psychic xeno-archeologist in it.;) I have Barren Worlds, because Mary Ellen Martin (from my local writing group) and you are both in it, and I went to Mary Ellen’s signing and got one.

  3. My pick would be: RUINS METROPOLIS edited by Eric T. Reynolds, with Rose Reynolds
    I love the cover art and the idea of writing a story inspired by it. I’d be interested in reading all the diverse stories which were produced from it!
