To celebrate BCS Science-Fantasy Month 2, we’re giving away two signed copies of George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois’s hardback anthology Old Mars!

Old Mars is an anthology of new F/SF stories about the classic science-fantasy sort of Mars, that had canals and dead alien cities and rayguns and Martians.

It includes stories by Howard Waldrop, Matthew Hughes, Michael Moorcock, and BCS author David D. Levine (“Liaisons Galantes: A Scientific Romance” in BCS #108; “Sun Magic, Earth Magic” in BCS #1), whose story about pirate Captain Kidd sailing from Earth to Mars got a Recommended review from Locus online.

It’s a gorgeous hardcover, and our copies are signed by Allen Steele, whose story “Martian Blood” leads off the anthology.

One of our giveaways will be held next week on the BCS Twitter feed @BCSmagazine the week of Mar. 17; details to come.
