To celebrate the Jan. 21 release of the new epic fantasy novel The Mask of Mirrors by M.A. Carrick (a joint pseudonym for BCS authros Marie Brennan and Alyc Helms) and the M.A. Carrick short story “As Tight as Any Knot” in BCS #321, BCS is giving away two copies of The Mask of Mirrors.
The Mask of Mirrors and “As Tight as Any Knot” feature clever thieves running deft schemes to secure themselves and their futures, with a similar flair as Brennan’s caper tale “The Şiret Mask” in BCS #238 and podcast BCS 206 and in a world as gritty as Helms’s “A Screech of Gulls” in BCS #168 and podcast BCS 145.
One giveaway for The Mask of Mirrors will take place on the BCS Twitter feed @BCSmagazine, Thurs. Jan. 7. (The other is here on the BCS website in a post.)
