LEGEND OF THE GALACTIC HEROES, VOLUME 5: MOBILIZATION

On March 1, Steinmetz discovered the Yang fleet much sooner than he’d expected. This was, unbeknownst to Steinmetz, because Yang had wanted to be noticed. But the location of his discovery was problematic. Midway between the Raighar and Tripura star systems, it was far removed from any known shipping routes. The reason for this was obvious from the data captured on Phezzan.

“We’ve confirmed the existence of a black hole. Its Schwarzschild radius is about nine kilometers, but its mass is sixty quadrillion tons to the ten billionth power, and the danger-zone radius is estimated to be, at most, 3,200 light-seconds, or 960,000,000 kilometers.”

“Then I’m assuming we shouldn’t get any closer than one billion kilometers?”

According to the operator, Yang’s fleet was precisely toeing that one billion–kilometer line. Moreover, it had assumed a convex formation with the black hole at its rear.

“What could they be planning?”

As Steinmetz inclined his head slightly to one side, chief of staff Vice Admiral Neisebach dispelled his commander’s doubts.

“Putting the danger zone at their rear limits our trajectories of attack. There’s no way we can go around them. That must be their aim.” More…

And the winners are…

Lots of great answers to our A Small Charred Face giveaway! People sure do love vampires. It was hard to select our top four, but somehow (breakfast vodka) we managed it.

 

First winner is  Lara Alonso Corona, who loved Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s Certain Dark Things. Not only is it an Adjective Adjective Noun book, like A Small Charred Face, but Moreno-Garcia blurbed our book, so we’re sure Lara will love it!

This week saw the death of science fiction grandmaster Brian Aldiss, so we were very pleased to see Mike D. standing up for the underrated Dracula Unbound.

Richard Alan Scott wrote some light verse for us, and we’re always a sucker for that sort of thing. Plus Karl Edward Wagner!

And finally, Ken P for his stirring analysis of I Am Legend.

 

Thanks everyone for playing, and check us out next time we do a giveaway!

 

 

It’s the A SMALL CHARRED FACE giveaway contest!

Next month we’re releasing A Small Charred Face, an amazing vampire novel by Kazuki Sakuraba. The early reviews are great and it’s coming out next month, just in time for long autumn nights meant for reading something creepy. So of course it is time for one of our giveaway contests!

As usual, the giveaway will work like this: leave a small essayistic (or poetic!) comment on this post, this time describing your favorite vampire story in any medium, and telling us why. We’ll select our four favorites on Friday August 25th, around noon Pacific time, and we’ll ship copies of the book to the winners. We ship anywhere, and read Japanese, Spanish, and Greek as well as English! So tell us what you think!

And now, the LEGEND OF THE GALACTIC HEROES giveaway contest winners!

We have chosen the winners to the Legend of Galactic Heroes giveaway contest! And they are:

First up is Blu: we had to give a book to one of the people who named LOGH as their favorite series, after all!

Then we have GreyDuck, who named C.J. Cherryh Foreigner series, one of our faves.  (PS: if you like “competence porn”, please also check out our near-future SF thriller Orbital Cloud!)

Metal Abaj goes international with his entry on the eurocomic Valérian et Laureline. We’ve spent so much time explaining that the forthcoming movie isn’t a “rip-off” of The Fifth Element, so we’re pleased to award a fellow fan!

And last but not least, Andres Rodriguez goes classic with the Asimov’s Robot series! Vital stuff.

 

Check back here soon for our next giveaway. (Hint: vampires!) getanabolics
