International giveaway 1 small

I have brand-new UK paperback copies of Noumenon burning a hole in my bookshelf, and brand-new bookplates, and brand-new stickers, and of course bookmarks!

Would you perhaps like a few of these things?

I have two sets of these to give away, and I will mail them anywhere outside of the United States. All you have to do to enter is ONE of the following between July 4th and July 12th (If you’d like to do more, that’s awesome! But each person will only be entered one time.):

*Retweet this tweet with a comment.

*If you’ve read Noumenon or any of my work, leave a new review on said work at Goodreads, or Amazon, or Barnes & Noble, or your preferred book-purchasing online venue and link me the review in the comments on this post.

On July 13th I will draw two random winners in the same manner I drew winners for my previous giveaway. Then I will contact the winners with a way to privately send me your address.

Good luck, and happy reading!

Alternate Yous

I’ve got an article up on the HarperVoyager UK blog, entitled Alternate Yous, wherein I discuss our long-standing fascination with fictional clones, as well as our unending obsession with nature vs. nurture.

Here’s a breif excerpt:

In Noumenon, I explore the concept of clones as a ‘fix.’  Early in the novel, clones are thought to be the best way to ensure an interstellar convoy’s success.  The mission planners believe if they take genetic information from well-vetted sources that it will give them more control over the many variables that could shift in the mission over the centuries.

But does it offer more control?  Would populating generation ships with genetically identical crews over and over actually create stability? Our experiences are part of who we are, and an Earth-based mission-control cannot regulate every incident aboard such a convoy.

It’s the classic nature vs. nurture argument: do our genes make us who we are, or do our experiences?

If you’d like to read the whole thing, head on over here!

Happy reading!
