EDIT: All of my free copies of Dreadnought are gone, but thank you for your interest! If it makes any difference, I can't wait to get off work and read the last 50 pages -- it's that good!
You know all about Cherie Priest, right? The Seattle Times called her "the high priestess of steampunk," and for good reason! Her last title, Boneshaker, won the Locus award for Best Sci-Fi Novel, and was among Publishers Weekly best 100 books of the year.
Dreadnought comes out next week, but this is your chance to get a finished copy early and free!
LIBRARIANS (in the U.S. only, please): Email me your mailing address/title to benjamin.rubinstein (at) macmillan.com and I'll send you a copy! But hurry; I only have five!
P.S. Dreadnought just got a starred PW review. "The real draw is Priest's latest no-nonsense heroine, who comes equipped with a full measure of sharp judgement and brutal competence as well as a nurse's kind (but not saintly) heart."
Aww, but now I miss her last heroine, Briar. Man, is it refreshing to see deadly and brave chicks that never once have to flash any thigh. Well, Briar didn't, you'll have to find out for yourself about Mercy!
