Dead Man’s Hand Sweepstakes!

Dead Man's Hand: An Anthology of the Weird West  is out in the U.S. today, and we want to send you one of our three copies! Edited by John Joseph Adams (who just stopped by to take our Pop Quiz!), this collection includes stories from Elizabeth Bear, Tad Williams, Seanan McGuire, Joe R. Lansdale, and Ken Liu that turn the American West of the pre-1900s into a strange land where werewolves, aliens, and demons coexist with cowboys and gunslingers of all kinds.

U.K. readers can get the anthology on May 30th from Titan Books. And check back with us tomorrow morning for an excerpt of “Wrecking Party,” Alastair Reynolds's story from the collection!

Stephen Bristow
88. Vanesmantha
Despite the recent movies made to demonstrate the contrary, I think westerns and science fiction go very well together...there already being a sense of wonderment in the old west, both looking in at and out from.
I think science ficiton and chocolate-chip cookie-dough go well together too.
Thanks for the chance!
