Solstice Countdown Day #1 Giveaway: Songs of the Dying Earth

The Solstice Countdown Day #1 giveaway is the new hardcover edition of Songs of the Dying Earth: Stories in Honor of Jack Vance, edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois!

This anthology, coming out next Tuesday, December 7th from Tor Books, features a lot of big names, including Neil Gaiman, Tad Williams, George R. R. Martin, Elizabeth Moon, Kage Baker, Robert Silverberg, and many more.

The stories all take place in the world of Jack Vance’s 1950 science fiction novel (and subsequent series) The Dying Earth, a noted inspiration to the contributing writers in this anthology.

Warriors edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner DozoisWe’re also throwing in (actually, placing gently, because…the size of this thing…) a hardcover edition of Warriors, an anthology of new stories from just as mighty a group of science fiction and fantasy writers (Carrie Vaughn! Naomi Novik! David Weber! Robin Hobb!), also edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois.

That’s two doorstoppers for the price of none!
