‘Grass’ giveaway

I don’t normally run giveaways on this blog, but this is an odd case and will interest anyone who reads me because of my Doctor Who stuff.

Fantasy & SF, Sept 2001

I’ve the September 2001 issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction to giveaway. Eagle-eyed readers will spot it’s been defaced by Faction Paradox creator Lawrence Miles, whose short story ‘Grass’ is published in it. That’s the one with mammoths and President Jefferson.

It also contains a novella by Kate Wilhelm, and short stories by Alex Irvine, Michael Kandel, Robert Sheckley and Laird Barron.

Why am I giving it away? We need every scrap of space we can get. If you’d seen some of the early drafts of other writers’ novels I’ve shredded in the last year, some of you would weep…

    Ah neat, I rather liked ‘Grass’; it’s been a few years since I last read it and seeing this I think I’ll put it on my reading list for a reread.
    Anyways, nice of you to be doing this giveaway.

    Hooray for free stuff! And hooray for Warring States, seeing as I’ve never said hi. Yet to read ‘Grass’ myself. Agreed with the above, jolly decent. x

    Oh wow.
    I’m going to admit right away that I’d never give something like this away. I’d hoard it away with my other favored magazines and excerpts to be lovingly read and re-read every other month or so until the day it finally breaks apart and I have to keep it in a folder or something.

    Anyway, thanks for the chance at having it!
