Crossing the Streams 2014: A wonderfully crazy, multi-author book giveaway

Now we know what actually happens when you cross the streams.

It rains books.

It rains a lot of books.

Nearly twenty authors of speculative fiction–ranging from science-fiction and fantasy novels to short stories and comics–have joined together to create one of the coolest giveaways I’ve come across.

Each author is currently holding their own individual contest with its own unique rules for entry.  The basics of the game are the same for everyone, though.  Every author, no matter how different their rules are, will be picking two winners from among the entries for their site’s contest.  Those two winners will receive a signed book of their choice from that author.  Awesome, right?

That’s not even the best part.

Once all of the individual giveaways are over, there’s going to be one “super winner” chosen from among all of the authors’ collective entrants.  That lucky person is going to awarded with a signed book from every single one of the participating authors.  It’s a reader’s dream!

There’s still time for my fellow bookworms to enter the contest since it’s running until March 19th, 2014.  Go ahead and check out the rules for each author and try to score some free books,  since even if you don’t win, you may just find something new and exciting to take home from the library!

In the meantime, I’m going to start clearing out some shelf space.  You know, just in case.
