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!
