Yesterday, Sharon Lee of the dynamic Liaden writing duo, had some news — it was her birthday (happy birthday!) and she and Steve Miller have just sold five new books in their Liaden series. She had a hobbit style birthday, giving away that news, and in the spirit of that, here’s something else to give away:
A set of the Liaden omnibus editions from Baen Books, reprinting 10 early Liaden novels–
The Dragon Variation
(contains Local Custom, Scout’s Progress, Conlfict of Honors)
The Agent Gambit
(contains Agent of Change, Carpe Diem)
(contains Plan B, I Dare)
The Crystal Variation
(contains Crystal Soldier, Crystal Dragon, Balance of Trade)
So, if you’re a person who has never tried Liaden, here’s a great opportunity. Or if you have a friend you’ve always meant to introduce. Or if you’ve worn out your own copies and need replacements….
Here’s how to enter:
Post a comment on this entry and tell me what you would give out as a gift on your own hobbit style birthday. (No actual gift giving required to enter.)
One winner will be chosen at random.
Contest runs from now until Sunday, September 16th, 5pm Eastern. International entries accepted. One comment entry per person.
“Hobbits give presents to other people on their own birthdays. Not very expensive ones, as a rule, and not so lavishly as on this occasion; but it was not a bad system. Actually in Hobbiton and Bywater every day in the year was somebody’s birthday, so that every hobbit in those parts had a fair chance of at least one present at least once a week. But they never got tired of them.” –J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
