That's it! If you haven't donated by now, you've missed your chance to win the speculative cities books; the winner will be announced later today. But never fear, we have another bonus prize for donations today: signed copies of the complete Creature Court trilogy by Tansy Rayner Roberts. Books one (Power and Majesty, winner of the Ditmar Award for Best Novel) and two (The Shattered City) are available now and will be posted at the end of the fund drive, book three (Reign of Beasts) will be sent on publication in February 2012. A great trilogy, and not the easiest books to get hold of outside Australia, so why not donate today?
All donations received before 23.59 PST Wednesday will be entered into a separate draw for this prize; donors today will still be entered into the main prize draw and receive the Strange Horizons in 2010 ebook. Thanks to Tansy Rayner Roberts for donating this prize!
Here's the blurb for Power and Majesty:
She almost missed the sight of a naked youth falling out of the sky. He was long and lean and muscled ... He was also completely off his face. A war is being fought in the skies over the city of Aufleur. No one sees the battles. No one knows how close they come to destruction every time the sun sets. During daylight, all is well, but when nox falls and the sky turns bright, someone has to step up and lead the Creature Court into battle. Twelve years ago, Garnet kissed Velody and stole her magic. Five years ago, he betrayed Ashiol, and took his powers by force. But now the Creature Court is at a crossroads ... they need a Power and Majesty who won't give up or lose themselves in madness ...
