LEGEND OF THE GALACTIC HEROES, VOLUME 1: DAWN. [Archive]

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

It’s the LEGEND OF THE GALACTIC HEROES giveaway contest!

To celebrate the release of Legend of the Galactic Heroes v4: Stratagem, we are doing a giveaway contest, and a special one. We’re giving away copies of v2, v3, or v4 to one of four lucky winners. (Winners’ choice, of course!)  We’ve not done giveaways for the prior volumes of LOGH for the simple reason that many people were eager for the series—word of mouth is the best marketing tool. But as we are almost halfway through the series now, we wanted to remind fans who may have read the first volume that it is continuing, and at a rapid pace. We’re here to help you keep track and catch up!

The contest is a simple one: in the form of a comment to this point, write about your favorite science fiction series: it can be a set of novels, films, comics, manga, pulp stories from the Golden Age, what have you—just make sure it’s science fiction and a series. Tell is why it’s your favorite, and what the series element of it brings to you as a reader. (And as we’re publishers here, we probably will have a bias toward novel series.) You can submit in English, Spanish, Japanese, or Greek, and on Friday we’ll announce four winners! Pick the volume you need and we’ll send it your way. And yes, we ship worldwide.

 

So, favorite SF series and why? Ready, go!

Legend Winners!

This time, Intern Veronica has selected the winners! Ca4AY81UAAAdwr9 (1)

 

She’ll be mailing them out after all, on Monday. So, without further ado, here are the six winners of Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Volume 1: Dawn.

 

First up is Isabelle Ryan: Her poem was an excellent and engaging lyrical and poetic synopsis of the premise. It was detailed, yet subtle and made me want to read LOGH. 

 

Then we have Karine Z.: Beautifully conveyed the epic scale of LOGH and made me eager to pick up the book.

 

Number three: accosteddarling: Your testimony is proof positive of a good story’s transformative effect on readers.

 

And then a haiku won! Benjamin: He wrote an emotionally evocative and beautiful cosmic, space haiku.

 

Five! Brandon Perkins: Wrote cool a mini essay on the duality of the text, its metaphorical and figurative symbolism, and its plot in a smart and appealing way.

 

And the last winner! Lyryken: Wrote a funny little anecdote about a failed attempt at flirting that somehow led to being recommended to read LOGH

 

Thanks all for playing, and we will be doing this for Volumes 2 and 3, so keep watching the skies!

We know you’re excited. Get more excited. Our Legend of the Galactic Heroes, v1: Dawn product page is up, and our friends at io9.com are running an excerpt today. So, now it’s time to channel that excitement into the possibility of a few copy of the book!

We’re giving away six copies of Dawn, and it’s easy to win. Just leave a brief essay, or poem, on the comments of this post, basically flipping out at us about how much you love LOGH. You can talk about the anime, the manga, your attempts to learn Japanese to read the books, dreams you’ve had, how you think it compares to other space operas…whatever you like. The six best essays and/or poems will get free copies! We read English, Spanish, German, Japanese, Chinese, and Greek around here, and we ship anywhere, so please try! We’ll announce the winners around noon, Pacific time, on Friday, March 4th.
