Giveaway! Short Story Collection #6!

I looooove offering short story collections for giveaway. I never appreciated how much people like short stories, but I get more entries for these contests than any other. Thankfully Penguin Books has given me the chance to accumulate 4 books to offer one lucky winner so I can continue the short story giveaway tradition. Ages of Wonder (Edited by Julie E. Czerneda) Here are nineteen original stories of myth, magic, and the creatures of fantasy, as seen through different historical eras— from the Age of Antiquity to the Age of Sails, the Colonial Age, the Age of Pioneers, the Pre-Modern Age, and the Age to come... Other Earths (Edited by Nick Gevers) One world among many... eleven stories about them all. What if Lincoln never became president, and the Civil War never took place? What if Columbus never discovered America, and the Inca developed a massive, technologicallyadvanced empire? What if magic was real and a half-faerie queen ruled England? What if an author discovered a book written by an alternate version of himself? These are just some of the possible pathways that readers can take to explore the Other Earths that may be waiting just one page away. Terribly Twisted Tales (Edited by Martin H. Greenberg) Eighteen stories that offer a new twist on old fairy tales. From Hansel and Gretel and Goldilocks, to Snow White, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and more, here are eighteen stories that take familiar fairy tales and twist them around to give them an entirely new slant. Any fan of far-out fantasy is sure to be delighted. Swordplay (Edited by Denise Little) Seventeen rapier-sharp stories of swordplay, magic, and adventure... From a samurai’s sword to an assassin’s blade, from Custer’s cavalry sword to D’Artagnan’s deadly weapon, from the sword of Damocles to the legendary Excalibur, these all-new spellbinding tales get straight to the point. Whether it’s a sword bespelled to crave blood, cold steel that magicks its wielder into a video game, or a dwarf-crafted blade meant to slay a dragon, these weapons each come sheathed in their own fascinating story that cuts right to the heart of fantasy adventure. To get your hands on these, either leave a comment here or email me at sqt1969@(nospam)gmail.com (just remove the 'nospam' insert) under the header "Short 6" to enter and I will randomly pick a winner by Friday June 12th. Please be sure I can reach you easily. If I cannot reach a winner within 48 hours I will pass the books onto another entrant. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Open everywhere. Good luck!

I just love a great collection of short stories. They're fun to read and review! Plus a good way to discover new favorite author (it's how I found MaryJanice Davidson and Charlaine Harris many years ago).
