Scott Westerfeld Interview & Behemoth Giveaway

Earlier this week, I sat down with Scott Westerfeld to talk about his upcoming book Behemoth, second in the four-book trilogy that began with Leviathan. (Yes, you read that right; listen and find out!) Answering questions submitted by Tor.com readers, Scott talks about everything from Australia to zombies and shares some of his writing tips and tricks.

Thanks to Macmillan Audio for letting us use the recording studio!

Here are links to the books that Scott mentions as being useful in his research:

Europe’s Last Summer, by David Fromkin
Classic Turkish Cooking, by Ghillie Basan
Warlord, by Carlo D’Este

And you can check out some of Keith Thompson’s beautiful interior art, featuring the Ottoman-style mechas, here and here.

We also have five Advance Reading Copies of Behemoth to give away. (Thanks, Simon & Schuster!) These are trade paperbacks with the same cover art as the hardcover, and they are made entirely of awesome.

The rules: To enter the giveaway, leave one comment—duplicates won’t count—on this post between now and noon EST, Wednesday, October 6. The five winners will be chosen randomly. The giveaway is open to everyone everywhere. Please check your email Wednesday or Thursday; if we don’t hear back from you by noon on Friday, your prize will go to someone else.


Megan Messinger wants a…. well, when you read Behemoth, you’ll know what she wants for a pet.
