Giveaway! "7th Sigma" by Steven Gould

I almost decided not to do this giveaway because this book looks too cool not to keep. But you know what? I'm so swamped that I think it's only fair to give this away while it's new and I'll buy a copy when I'm ready to read it myself.

Is it too late for second thoughts?

Okay-- before I change my mind.

Courtesy of Tor Books I have a copy of 7th Sigma by Steven Gould to offer for giveaway.

Welcome to the territory. Leave your metal behind, all of it. The bugs will eat it, and they’ll go right through you to get it…Don’t carry it, don’t wear it, and for god’s sake don’t come here if you’ve got a pacemaker.

The bugs showed up about fifty years ago—self-replicating, solar-powered, metal-eating machines. No one knows where they came from. They don’t like water, though, so they’ve stayed in the desert Southwest. The territory. People still live here, but they do it without metal. Log cabins, ceramics, what plastic they can get that will survive the sun and heat. Technology has adapted, and so have the people.

Kimble Monroe has chosen to live in the territory. He was born here, and he is extraordinarily well adapted to it. He’s one in a million. Maybe one in a billion.

In 7th Sigma, Gould builds an extraordinary SF novel of survival and personal triumph against all the odds.

Just add your information to the form below to enter (all information is guaranteed confidential and will be discarded once the contest ends) and I will randomly pick one winner by Wednesday July 27th. No multiple entries please-- all multiple entries will be discarded. Open everywhere.

Good luck!

Go read the free excerpt called "Bugs in the Arroyo" at Tor.com. Great story. Hopefully, it will make you want to read 7th SIGMA as badly as it made me. Can't wait.
