Our World, But Wrong (Summer Giveaway #3)


In this third giveaway, up for grabs are three novels of our world, only not as we know it. As with the two Black Library giveaways, I either have multiple copies of these books, or have replaced them with eBooks so I can more-easily take them with me to the US.

To enter, please either email your details to the Civilian Reader address (at the bottom of the page), or leave your name in the comments along with some way of getting in touch with you if possible (Twitter handle or anti-spam-version of an email address, for example).

Unfortunately, this giveaway is limited to UK and EU. Sorry about this, it’s just too expensive to ship stuff further afield. I still intend to run more for North & South America from September.

Giveaway: Tom Pollock’s The City’s Son, Kate Locke’s God Save the Queen, Paolo Bacigalupi’s Ship Breaker & The Drowned Cities.

It’s a short-run giveaway, too, so I’ll be drawing the winners on Wednesday 29th August – one will get The City’s Son, one will get God Save the Queen, and one will get both Ship Breaker and The Drowned Cities.

Please remember to state which one you’re interested in, if you have a preference.


  1. Hi. To win these on 29th would be fantastic as its my birthday!! :)

    I'm in the UK and the easiest/quickest way to contact me is via twitter @Jeni_A_

    Good luck to everyone that enters :)

  2. Hope I can enter this one as well :)
    I'm interested in all of the books but especially Kate Locke’s God Save the Queen

    1. You can enter, but your chances of winning two in a row are very small. Unless only three people enter the giveaway, in which case...

  3. What a fabulous giveaway! :) I'm especially interested in winning The Drowned Cities - it looks fantastic! Thank you for the chance to win!

    Here's my email: evieseo (at) gmail (com)
    I'm in US! :)

  4. Hi, I started reading your blog only recently, interesting stuff! I'm from Belgium. I'm particularly intrigued by Ship Breaker!

    You can get in touch with me by email: griffin_vanderschaeghe(at)hotmail(com)

    Keep up the great work!

  5. Crap, I take a few days break from the intenet and find myself too late for give-aways. This is a very good one for me as I actually intend to get all of those. Especially "City's Son".

    Any chance I can make an early entry for the next one? mongrove-@-gmaildotcom

  6. Sorry for the late update - congrats to JEREMY G, TRACY M and SARA T. Your books are on their way. :)
