A bit late to the party, but it's worth a shot :-)

You know, tor.com, this "first n to email" sweepstakes system is no sweepstakes.

I'm sure it makes it easy for you guys to handle, but it's a lot more difficult for people who work to enter...

Mark me down as somebody who's not a fan.

I agree. The sweepstakes were exciting. For these, if I see the post an hour late I know that I have essentially no chance and I move on.

Yep, I'm going to agree yet again, that I am in no favour of these 'new' sweepstakes.

I'd have to say I agree. I'm unable to email from work.

I agree also. Too many ways for entries to get lost in oblivion.

Yeah. I am NOT a fan of these first past the post contests. I am wondering if you can randomly choose the winner(s) from the first day's emails?

On annother note. I really like this book alot. Well worth it for any fan of Fantasy Victoriana

Out of curiousity, are there any readers, any at all, that prefer the first-to-arrive contest over the sweepstakes? Because I doubt it.

Jeez I thought I might have a chance to get this to read early, but not with these kinds of rules. I can't check this site from work. I'm with the other people. How about a contest that doesn't discriminate against those of us at a tough workplace?

Please go back to using comments as entries for giveaways. Those of us who can't browse from work have no chance under the new rules.

Thank you Tor for doing something you obviously don’t have to do - and few other publishers even consider. Though I don’t have the opportunity to enter every sweepstake, I appreciate the mere chance for the scarce ones I can and still admire your charitable intentions for the ones I can’t.

Thank you Tor for being the most customer conscious publisher on the market. Please keep it up!

Awww I got excited to see a contest, only to be dissappointed to remember that it was the new entry system.

Please go back to the old way.

Hi guys,

Our intention is to use both systems.

We have to been running the "first come" systems at various times of the day and weekday/weekends to be sure to spread the time zones out. We have, in fact, found that has brought us more varied winners. (And we can get the books out more quickly this way.) But we'll be sure to run some sweepstakes as a "random draw" as well so the maximum number of people can participate.
