We. Have. LIFT OFF!
It’s heeeeere. SciFi Month has officially begun at last, and boy do I have a fun-filled month on the blog ahead of me! I AM SO EXCITED. I will have guests! I will have giveaways! I will have review goodness galore!
This will be my third year participating in Rinn Reads SciFi Month, and my second year of co-hosting at Rinn’s invitation. And to make it even more awesome, this November also marks the fourth anniversary of Over The Effing Rainbow!
Four years, you guys. Where does the time go?!
So in order to celebrate both occasions, I have no less than four giveaways planned throughout this month, and the first of them kicks off right here, right now…
…And because good things ought to come in threes, November also brings with it the return of Apex Magazine‘s annual subscription drive. As I did last year, I am showing my unending support of this awesome SF/F magazine by offering one of you fabulous Earthbound readers the chance to win a free year’s subscription!
There are very few rules to follow when entering this giveaway, but they are important ones, so please note:
- You must be in possession of a valid email address
- You need to leave a comment on this post confirming that you wish to enter the giveaway – any comments that lack clear confirmation will not be included in the giveaway tally
- When commenting, please include a way of contacting you should you win, eg. email address or Twitter username
Beyond that, anything goes! There are no territorial restrictions – if you live on Earth, you’re eligible! If you’re already a fan of Apex, or you have an interest in short fiction under the umbrella of surreal, shocking or strange science fiction and fantasy, so much the better. Apex has something weird for everyone!
They also commission some of the best cover art I’ve ever seen. If that’s also your bag, it’s well worth perusing their back issues as well as subscribing! If you’re still not quite convinced, check back tomorrow when I’ll have a guest post from Apex’s managing editor, Lesley Conner, talking about her favourite kinds of SF stories…
This giveaway will run until midnight on Saturday, November 5th. The winner will be announced here on Sunday, November 6th. Whoever wins will be allowed 48 hours to get in touch with me in response to the announcement, to confirm that you’re still interested in receiving the subscription and to provide any information I might need in order to send it your way. If no response is given in that time, another winner will be chosen.
Now, let’s get on with celebrating science fiction!
