Thank you so much. While several of the other winners graciously congratulated me (more graciously than I would have managed, no doubt), I think Joe Abercrombie summed up the enthusiasm for my win best:

I think it’s a good thing they made this award an axe. I may need it for self-defense.

A repost of the prizes and the rules below (if you have some questions, check out Brent’s comments HERE to see if they’ve been answered, and feel free to post other questions in the comments to this post):

FIRST PLACE: The first FOUR chapters of The Broken Eye – that’s two more new chapters than you can get anywhere else right now! – and signed copies of The Black Prism and The Blinding Knife in trade paperback.

SECOND PLACE: Signed copies of The Black Prism and The Blinding Knife in trade paperback.

THIRD PLACE: A signed copy of The Blinding Knife in trade paperback.

3. International entries are allowed and encouraged!

4. As long as the costume is materially yours, some Photoshop is fine (no presenting characters from movies or video games by putting a gloss of Photoshop on it and saying it’s your costume).

5. Two entries allowed per person, but you can only win once.

6. The subject line of the email must read: 2013 Costume Contest.

7. Address the email to: CAPSLOCK @ brentweeks.com (no spaces; and just like last year, Brent will be selecting the winners).

8. The costume must be family-friendly (as usual, we’d like to display the best entries on the website and can’t do that if it’s not appropriate for younger fans)

Winners will be announced on Monday, November 4, 2013.

Spanish-Language Review and Book Trailer

by CAPSLOCK

Spanish-language readers, check out this high praise of El Prismo Negro from book blog La Biblioteca de Seshat:

“Resumiendo, es un libro que como podéis ver me encanta, y no puedo sino recomendarlo a cualquier amante de la fantasía. Es de lo mejor en fantasía después de Tolkien y Martin…” [In short, as you can see, it is a book I love, and I can not but recommend it to any fantasy lover. It is the best in fantasy after Tolkien and Martin...]

Go HERE to read the rest and HERE to order your copy!

And for those of you who are interested in a Spanish Black Prism book trailer, this one has Spanish-language subtitles (though I can’t guarantee the complete accuracy of the translations!):

(Also, new poll at right!)
