I have in my possession a beautiful advance copy of the gorgeous Saga Press edition of Tremontaine, which collects all 13 episodes from season 1 in one hefty paperback. This doesn’t hit bookstores until May 2, 2017, but one lucky reader will get this mailed directly to their house well before then.
If you’re not familiar with Tremontaine, let me remind you about this glorious project. I was one of seven writers who put together season 1, based on the world of Ellen Kushner’s groundbreaking Swordspoint novels. Tremontaine tells the story behind the rise of Diane, the Duchess Tremontaine, whom you may know of already if you’ve read Swordspoint. It also tells the story of chocolate in the City, and one intrepid chocolate merchant-turned-swordswoman, Ixkaab Balam. It’s also about intrigue, murder, romance, and did I mention swordfighting?
But don’t take my word for it! NPR called it “A binge-ready fantasy of manners, packed with swordplay, witty banter and chocolate.” Autostraddle called it “a paradise of queerness and chocolate” — and if that doesn’t do it for you, they also called it “a savvy commentary on the economics and ethics of cultural exchange.” As a former anthropologist and economics major, I really couldn’t resist that.
So what do you have to do to win this advance copy? Here are the rules:
