Tor Books B-Day Giveaway: Box o’ Books

As many Tor folk observed, the Tor Books offices are full of, well, Tor books. Many of them stay politely on their shelves, alphabetical by author, but not all. Advance Reading Copies are  too cool to hang out with anyone else; they sneak cigarettes and beer behind the Publicity shelves and lounge attractively on the corners of desks. Bound galleys hide in piles in the corners, blushing and apologizing profusely when tripped over. And the rest of them are bloody everywhere—holding up people’s computer monitors, trysting behind the water cooler, piling up horizontally, vertically, and every which way—and have to be spoken to sternly by interns.

So that you may better get to know our little social sphere, the three lucky winners of this giveaway will receive a grab-box of books from the Tor offices. Winners should let us know their general likes and dislikes (only books with bare-chested men on the cover; no spaceships; only spaceships; looking for books for a twelve-year-old, etc) and we’ll put together a fun selection.

The Rules: All you have to to do be entered is comment on this post—once; duplicates won’t count—by noon EST on Wednesday, April 28th. Winners will be chosen randomly. Please check your email on Wednesday or Thursday; if I don’t hear back from you in 24 hours, another winner will be chosen.

The past few posts on Tor's Birthday have been very interesting. The idea that people stick to a company and stay happy is just unexpected (but very nice, indeed), and this, in my opinion, reflects very clearly in the quality of the output.

I consume books at an alarming rate, and more books are always good. Any books, really.

I am *not* entering, but had to comment and say that this: "Advanced Reader Copies are too cool to hang out with anyone else; they sneak cigarettes and beer behind the Publicity shelves and lounge attractively on the corners of desks. Bound galleys hide in piles in the corners, blushing and apologizing profusely when tripped over" literally made me snarf my tea out my nose. Ow.

My wife already complains about the stacks of books in my closet, on my nightstand, in my office, and on the book shelves in the living room. There are no stacks of books in the kitchen, dining room, or den, however. Winning this contest could change that.

Happy Birthday Tor! Provided lowly Europeans can apply I'd love to feed my book addiction. As for preferences I'd appreciate most of all science fiction. The harder and, uh, sciencier (totally a word) the better.

136. annathepiper
I'm in! Preference would be to anything old enough to NOT be out in electronic form, since a lot of my book purchasing these days is digital. Chances are also pretty high that anything Tor's put out in the last 5-7 years, I already have a copy of anyway. ;)

If I'm selected I'd totally groove on several of the obscurer novels that Jo Walton's excellent review posts have been covering.

I prefer dragons to half naked men (on book covers at least), swords and Gandalf wannabes are preferred over spaceships and guns; and if there is anything furry, fuzzy or cute on the cover it always grabs my attention.

As one whose scope of book-collecting diverges from the modal level by several standard deviations, the thought of offering a warm refuge to additional volumes enthuses me. Especially if some of those refugees are the sort which, upon colliding with the outside world, stagger a bit and ask "What the HELL was that?" . . . while the outside world does the same.

Happy Birthday!! I laughed at the ARCs sneaking cigarettes and beer...too funny an image! I'm sure there is a story waiting to be told as they sneak off deeper in the shelves to do....

Send away. Always time to read!

Thanks.

I love books, reading, collecting, re-reading. The more the merrier, and all of my 5 children and 5 (and counting) grandchildren do too! I have seen to that. The only serious battles in my house is who gets the new bookcase.

Hi, and happy (un)birthday, Tor!

Just had to pop in and send happy wishes (or hippy wishes in my case, I guess) for many more TOR-iffic b'days! : )

Likes: Asimov, Herbert, Ellison, Tolkien, Clarke, Anthony, Orson Scott Card, Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Niven, Pohl, Fritz Leiber, Goodkind, Alan Dean Foster, and too many more to mention.

Thanks much!

I love sci-fi (soft sci-fi usually), also media tie-ins to sci-fi shows (Battlestar Galactica, Andromeda, etc), and fantasy and humor books.

A few of my favorite authors: Issac Asimov, Peter David, Guy Gavriel Kay, Poul Anderson, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, David Eddings, Raymond E. Feist... The list can go on and on:)

I'll keep all my fingers crossed!
Levi Stahl

and now my ambition is to have my house decorated *exactly* like Tor's editorial offices!

If I had my absolute druthers, any character driven sf or f is great, space opera preferable to sprockets-n-rivets, Alpha libertarian heroes with angsty backstories questing against Ultimate Evil need not apply...

... but really, all Words On Paper is good.

I am almost 50 but do not read books for "old folks" yet so something in the DUF range and nice colorful covers will be appreciated if this comes my way. Thanks much for the fun contest.

Now that I have reached the last comment and can add my own...

Once, many years ago, we had a clean up day at the office. We all came in one Saturday in November and cleaned out file cabinets, desk drawers, bookshelves, and bankers boxes. There were many tons of paper for recycling, and we were urged to take the now-empty three ring binders home with us.

...but it took us years to recover. It turned out that a lot of that paper had never made its way into the official filing system, or at least no-one could find it in the files when we needed a copy.

So, make sure you really don't need that ARC or bound galley, before you box it up and send it to ME!!!

Sounds absolutely wonderful! I love books. Preferences are something with a bit of mystery or history (real, parallel, or imagined). I know I'll read them all regardless. I like anthologies too. Zombies are probably on my least liked list - but I've even read a few of those types of stories and my son-in-law would like them.

Happy birthday! There is nothing better than a birthday box of free spec fic books. Unless they are media tie-ins. Ick. I love both sci-fi and fantasy, and prefer a classic feel in both.
