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 Tor.com 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.

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. ;)

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.”

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.

Speaking of "there," anyone who claims to be steampunk should try to get to Steam Con (http://www.steam-con.com/)...says 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.

I've seen this in the store, and it looks very cool. The 30% offer is a good deal, too.
