In conjunction with the release of BCS author KJ Kabza’s new short fiction collection The Ramshead Algorithm and Other Stories, we’re giving away a signed copy of The Ramshead Algorithm and Other Stories!
KJ’s first story in BCS, “The Leafsmith in Love,” is a charming and engaging love story set in a steampunk arboretum. It’s included in The Ramshead Algorithm and Other Stories, along with other fantasy, SF, gothic fantasy, and more.
The giveaway for the signed copy of The Ramshead Algorithm and Other Stories will take place Thursday Apr. 5 on the BCS Twitter feed @BCSmagazine. It will run from 2 PM EST until 6 PM EST.
To enter, all you need to do is tweet what your favorite relationship story from BCS is. Whether “The Leafsmith in Love” or something else; a relationship story that’s charming or that’s dark, that ends happily or ends not-so-happily; with “relationship story” defined however you choose to define it.
KJ’s stories in The Ramshead Algorithm and Other Stories cover a broad range from charming to dark, happy ending or not, all with compelling characters and resonant emotions. Your answer can be anywhere on a broad range too.
