Steampunk Month Giveaway: Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker

Let the giveaways continue!

Today I have 20 (yes, twenty) copies of Cherie Priest’s fabulous new novel Boneshaker, again generously provided by our friends at Tor Books. Here’s the official summary:

In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice. Thus was Dr. Blue’s Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine born.

But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead.

Now it is sixteen years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue’s widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. Until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history.

His quest will take him under the wall and into a city teeming with ravenous undead, air pirates, criminal overlords, and heavily armed refugees. And only Briar can bring him out alive.

And if you don’t get picked but this sounds interesting to you, remember that the book is 30% off in the Store ($11.19).

The Rules: To get this giveaway, all you need to do is comment (once—duplicates won’t count) on this post. The winner will be selected at random. No geographic restrictions apply, for those asking. You have until noon EST on Wednesday, October 14th, to comment here. Please check your e-mail on this day—you have 24 hours to respond before I select a new winner.

Torie Atkinson has a hint for the next giveaway: it’s oh-so-shiny.

44. likenion
Oh I am sooo in. I hope luck picks me. Weee!
45. Corvus
The only thing keeping me from buying my own copy is lack of a job- I've actually got a list of books to splurge on the moment I hear "You're hired." First thing I'll do, before I even tell anyone is buy books. Particularly this one- I've followed Cherie Priest since before she hooked up with Tor.

Of course, I wouldn't mind winning a copy and thus saving myself the waiting. ;)
46. jefff
I would like to play!
47. GreggM

Bombarded by huzzahs for this book by several writers I respect -- must read! Also intrigued by the location, since I'm from the Seattle area -- trying to imagine which downtown blocks are obliterated. Can it actually be worse than current construction madness?

Tony Smith
69. g8rda
I'd like to read this!

125. Jim Steuer
Ms. Priest is such a fantastic person and dedicated to her work. Found out about her through Cemetary Dance and look forward to further titles!

Hey, if you like ice, this is a wonderful read, recommended:

“If that wind ever shifts, to south strong wind, we have to run like heck to get out of here a.s.a.p. that means everything, everybody, off the ice. it takes 8 hours to set up that whaling camp correctly, It takes just 20 minutes to “Killigvuk” EVACUATE,… RUN…One huge mass panic of over 600 people… run for your lives because it is that sudden. Ice is headed our way and it will run right over everything in its path. This advancing ice will pile up into gigantic piles.”

At least, look at the one picture:

Oh, it's not fiction.
212. Theresa L Gardner

Mmm. Goggles.
312. cScott
If this book is even half as good as her previous books, it will be fantastic!
313. Jenn M
I'm in it for the air pirates.
314. Moxie
I'm a bellydancer who believes steampunk is an aesthetic, not a buzzword, and you can't throw it on as an adjective to make the thing interesting. It has to be interesting and good in its own right. Steampunk is a wonderful accident.
315. Art M.
I would really like to win a copy. Viva steampunk!
316. callmedeb
I devour anything she writes!!! I can't wait to read this one!!! Cue the exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This one's definitely on my to get list.
331. Anthony Buchanan
Cherie Priest! Steampunk! I am so there!

Speaking of "there," anyone who claims to be steampunk should try to get to Steam Con ( the guy who won't be able to make it (*even though my birthday is also happening then!*).

But seriously, I love Cherie Priest. Gimme a copy, plz.
332. Melody Lu
Zombies, steampunk, Seattle. That is a boatload of fun right there!
333. jenwlee
Please...pick me!
334. vampiregirl76
Can't wait to read this one!!

335. Don Waugh Esq
As a cyberpunk, I keep wondering what the deal is with steampunk.

School me, please.
336. Thomm
Postapocalyptic steampunk? Ten shades of awesome! Does it feature a steam age Starbucks that's staffed by zombies?
337. Alicia Hall
Count Me In!!
338. Ian M Helgesen
Sounds interesting. Another hat in the ring.
341. Shanwa Lewis
Perfect I have wanted to read this for as long as you have been talking about it!!!
Thanks for this amazing chance you ROCK!!!!

342. Masonian
You had me at blight gas... er, I mean zombies.
In truth I've been wary of steampunk for a few years. Got scared off by a few crappy cliche ridden stinkers. But this one has zombies! So, I'm game to try another bite.
343. BerniP
I am a tremendous fan of Cherie Priest's, having found her on LJ when she posted as . (I hope I'm remembering that correctly. It was a clever variant of Wicked Witch.) I would love to get her new book.
348. Sqotty
deal me in...I'd like to write a review of it for my blog.

It's cute that everyone entered and all, but we all know that I'm going to win this "random" drawing. All twenty times. It's okay, though, kiddies. We can't all be winners or rocket surgeons. Someone has to wind the Great Clockwork Whozamajig and empty the spitoons. Make sure mine gets a nice polishing while I'm reading my new book.
429. Kaitlin V.
Sounds interesting, giving it a shot!
Jeff Caslake

Aaron Tady
498. apt2501
I want this book. I'm hoping that io9 will pick this as the next book for its book club. That way, if I don't win it here, I'll have an excuse to buy it.
499. LeadingZero
George Mann just did steampunk and zombies in his novel "The Affinity Bridge", so I would be interested in comparing this take versus that take. Mann's novel was a Sherlock Holmes-style mystery and adventure (Lots of explosions toward the end!).
500. Steve Muse1
I must admit, I'm a newbie to Steampunk... but what I've seen so far blows me away. Thanks to Cherie, whose Blog I stumbled upon by accident, thank goodness, I am now very much interested in this latest novel of hers, Boneshaker. I would love to be considered. Thanks...
Wes Samson
503. poemanderror
This book has earned a spot on my reading list. What more can you ask for than steampunk and zombies?

514. Marian Perera
He tampered in God's domain. *shakes head sadly*
515. Alan Blank
How can you go wrong with that cover (and Cherie Priest's writing). Plus-Goggles! I've have to go for a book that I can share with my teen-age daughter who is so into steampunk she has her set of goggles.
