Prize Pack: City of Heavenly Fire

City of Heavenly Fire, the final book in Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series has landed in book stores and this morning, we have a Mortal Instruments prize pack for one lucky Pink Raygun reader!

Books: Nick and Tesla’s Robot Army Rampage

Nick and Tesla’s Robot Army Rampage is a fun, fun book that’s perfect for the curious little tinkerer in your life. I’m considering giving it to my 8 year old cousin. He’s already on the Mad Scientist Super-villain career track and could use some good science role models.

Win A Free Book! London Falling by Paul Cornell

Today we have a copy of Paul Cornell’s new book, London Falling, to giveaway to a Pink Raygun reader. To enter, answer me this: You’re a paranormal beastie in an urban fantasy novel. What city are you terrorizing and why?

Books: Headstones and Monuments

Headstones and Monuments isn’t horror as we’ve come to know it. The stories therein are subtle and have an innocence to them that remind me of those days when a simple story about a half-wolfen mad scientist in the forest could leave a kid wide awake in an uncomfortable bunk.

After years of oversexed vampires, Bornikova’s single vampire-sex scene is refreshingly awkward and appropriately unsexy (just like sex with a dead guy should be!).
