Posted in: BCS Authors Elsewhere, Giveaways by Scott H. Andrews

In conjunction with Lisa M. Bradley’s story “Revival” in BCS #279, we’re giving away a copy of Lisa’s new novel Exile, from Rosarium Press, which comes out on June 25.

This giveaway will take place Wednesday Jun. 12 on the BCS Twitter feed @BCSmagazine. It will run from 2 PM EST until 5 PM EST.

To enter, all you need to do is tweet who your favorite BCS author who also writes science fiction is.

Exile is a science fiction novel about a plague-bound town. Many BCS authors write science fiction as well as fantasy, and have published great character-centered science fiction stories and science fiction novels.

Tweet us what your favorite BCS author who writes science fiction as well as fantasy is, and that will enter you in a random drawing for the copy of Revival.

To get you started, here are a few suggestions taken from our BCS Authors Elsewhere posts, highlighting BCS authors’ stories in other magazines:

Good luck!

Signed Sarah Pinsker Collection Giveaway on Twitter
Posted in: BCS Authors Elsewhere, Giveaways by Scott H. Andrews

With BCS #274 out this week, we’re giving away a signed copy of BCS author Sarah Pinsker’s (“Do As I Do, Sing As I Sing” in BCS #246; “The Mountains His Crown” in BCS #195 and podcast BCS 171) new short fiction collection Sooner or Later Everything Falls Into the Sea.

This giveaway will take place Wednesday Apr. 3 on the BCS Twitter feed @BCSmagazine. It will run from 2 PM EST until 5 PM EST.

Sooner or Later Everything Falls Into the Sea includes many of Sarah’s great stories about emotionally resonant characters in near-future worlds, like one where an accident victim gets a robotic prosthesis and another where live music and musicians are all but extinct. It doesn’t include her BCS stories, which are far-future and fantastical, but many BCS authors write other types of speculative fiction that are just as engaging as their fantasy stories in BCS. That’s why we highlight other publications by our authors in our BCS Authors Elsewhere posts.

So to enter this giveaway, all you need to do is tweet your favorite story by a BCS author that was in a different magazine or anthology.

Tweet us what your favorite story by a BCS author but that did not appear in BCS is, and that will enter you in a random drawing for the signed copy of Sooner or Later Everything Falls Into the Sea.

To get you started, look though our past BCS Authors Elsewhere posts. They’re an occasional and random sampling of stories that our authors have had released elsewhere.

Good luck!

Full rules for the Sarah Pinsker Sooner or Later Everything Falls Into the Sea Twitter giveaway:

You must tweet your comment on Twitter. Comments left anywhere else will not enter you in the giveaway.

You must include “@BCSmagazine” in your tweet. (This is so we can find it.)

You must mention the title of a work of short fiction written by an author who has been published in BCS. Comments that do not mention the title of a work of short fiction written by an author who has been published in BCS will not enter you in the giveaway.

You must tweet your tweet between 2PM Eastern Standard Time and 5PM Eastern Standard Time on Wed. Apr. 3, 2019. Any tweets posted before or after that will not be eligible.

All entries will be entered in a random drawing to win the book.

Each person will be entered only once in the random drawing (even if you post more than one eligible tweet).

You must tweet your tweet from a valid Twitter account (otherwise we won’t be able to contact you if you win).

BCS will conduct the random drawing from all eligible entries. The copy of Sooner or Later Everything Falls Into the Sea, signed to Beneath Ceaseless Skies, will be mailed to the winner.
