The 2013 Book Giveaway Extravaganza begins! First up: an Advance Reader Copy of The Lazarus Machine by Paul Crilley.
It is 1895, and the Babbage Engine is reality. Tesla-powered contraptions are everywhere in London. So are shadowy government figures, and there are even rumors that Moriarty, presumed dead, is really alive, skulking about in the shadows, and kidnapping individuals. Sebastian Tweed sees the proof of this firsthand when his father is abducted in front of him. He joins forces with Octavia Nightingale, who has her own reasons for hunting down the kidnappers, and the result is a Sherlockian steampunkian adventure, with two bantering protagonists, a hive of intrigue, and the beginnings of what looks like a swell series for young adults.
We have one advance reader copy of The Lazarus Machine to give away! The usual protocols apply. In order to be considered for the giveaway, post a comment below and tell us what Sherlock Holmes depiction is your personal favorite. Is it Jeremy Brett’s PBS series? The new Benedict Cumberbatch BBC series? Just Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories themselves, in unadulterated form? (I am partial to Young Sherlock Holmes, myself). If we get more than five answers, we’ll do a video giveaway; if not, we’ll do it the old-fashioned way (probably dice-rolling). The deadline is Sunday, January 27th. Good luck to everyone, and we’ll have another book to give away next week!
