To celebrate the tenth anniversary of BCS and Caroline M. Yoachim’s story “Carnival Nine” in BCS #225 and podcast BCS 196 named a finalist for the World Fantasy Awards, held later this fall, we’re giving away a signed copy of Caroline’s short fiction collection Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World & Other Stories!
Caroline’s previous BCS stories, “The Land of Empty Shells” in BCS #20 and “Seasons Set in Skin” in BCS #177 and podcast BCS 156 (which is included in Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World & Other Stories), are about siblings and family, and “Carnival Nine” is about family and generations. Seven Wonders has over twenty-five of Caroline’s stories through 2016, including literary fantasy, science fiction, fable-esque fantasy, and more.
The giveaway for the signed copy of Seven Wonders of a Once and Future World & Other Stories will take place Monday Oct. 1 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 what your favorite story from BCS about family is. Whether “Carnival Nine” or something else; a family story that’s charming or that’s dark, that ends happily or ends not-so-happily; with “family story” defined however you choose to define it.
