  • This week marks the 50th anniversary of the March of Washington for equal rights. It’s also the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, considered one of the best speeches of the 20th century. Watch the full speech, above. It’s entirely worth the time.
  • Have you grabbed your free copy of Five Years of Stories from Tor.com? If not, do it now, because the free download ends this weekend!
  • Are you a fan of getting to know your favorite authors in a more casual setting than a bookstore event? Author Mary Robinette Kowal wants to visit your parlour.
  • Earlier this year, a number of bloggers were invited to visit the set of the upcoming Ender’s Game movie. Now, they’re releasing info about those visits, including some juicy behind-the-scenes looks at the movie! Check out posts from the folks at io9, Slash Film, Collider, EnderWiggin.net, and Ender’s Ansible, to name just a few!

Goodreads Sweepstakes: Copperhead by Tina Connolly

August 19, 2013 Leave a comment

About Copperhead: Set in an alternate version of early 1900s England, Copperhead is the sequel to Tina Connolly’s stunning historical fantasy debut.

Helen Huntingdon is beautiful—so beautiful she has to wear an iron mask.

Six months ago her sister Jane uncovered a fey plot to take over the city. Too late for Helen, who opted for fey beauty in her face—and now has to cover her face with iron so she won’t be taken over, her personality erased by the bodiless fey.

Not that Helen would mind that some days. Stuck in a marriage with the wealthy and controlling Alistair, she lives at the edges of her life, secretly helping Jane remove the dangerous fey beauty from the wealthy society women who paid for it. But when the chancy procedure turns deadly, Jane goes missing—and is implicated in a murder.

Meanwhile, Alistair’s influential clique Copperhead—whose emblem is the poisonous copperhead hydra—is out to restore humans to their “rightful” place, even to the point of destroying the dwarvven who have always been allies.

Helen is determined to find her missing sister, as well as continue the good fight against the fey. But when that pits her against her own husband—and when she meets an enigmatic young revolutionary—she’s pushed to discover how far she’ll bend society’s rules to do what’s right. It may be more than her beauty at stake. It may be her honor…and her heart.

Enter for a chance to win here!

(Ends September 16)

  • Mary Robinette Kowal, the author of Shades of Milk and Honey and Glamour in Glass, is auctioning off a manuscript of her next novel, Without a Summer, for Hurricane Sandy relief. Check it out, and donate to a good cause. A lot of folks up here still need help.
