books! contests! books!  

I have received in the mail a small box of A FANTASY MEDLEY and a large box of THE PRETENDER’S CROWN. The TPC contest is still open for about four more hours, so if you want to cast THE QUEEN’S BASTARD as a way to potentially win a copy, you should hasten to do that.

Many people said “Gosh, I could do this with the Old Races or the Walker Papers”, and so, because there will be no more Negotiator books, I will give you the opportunity to win a copy of A FANTASY MEDLEY, which has a Janx & Daisani story in it, by casting the Negotiator trilogy. My favorite cast list gets a copy of the anthology. Major characters: Margrit Knight, Alban Korund, Grace O’Malley, Janx, Daisani, Kaimana, Cole, Cameron, Tony. Bonus points for casting any of the following: Margrit’s parents, Chelsea, Russell, Cara, Tariq, Biali, Malik, Ausra, Kate, Ursula, Sarah, Hajnal.

It isn’t necessary to cast all of them. It’s not even necessary to cast most of them. Just have fun with it. :) I’ll close the contest a week from now, at about noon Eastern time on Tuesday April 14th.

*wibbles just a little bit* No more... Sad....

And I'd love to cast them but I'm horrible at it. Really just... awful. I rarely get good pictures of characters in my head.

I never do, but I think it's fun to see what other people say. :)

I have vague hopes of doing an Old Races anthology at some point. I'm thinking of running a second contest wherein people suggest short story ideas and I, uh, steal them. :)

I'm more than happy to give ideas to people who can actually DO things with them.

So long as you don't go all Piers Anthony on us, needing to stick an appendix at the end of each book listing all the "contributors".

On the other hand, he did sell a lot of books that way....
