Giveaway!!! The Half-Made World
I was recently contacted by the publisher for a review/giveaway opportunity for The Half-Made World (October 2010, Tor Hardcover) By Felix Gilman.
While I wish I could have gotten to the book and had a review up for you before I offered up one for a giveaway, I didn’t want you all to miss out on this chance.
From the publisher:
The world is only half-made. What exists has been carved out amidst a war between two rival factions: the Line, paving the world with industry and claiming its residents as slaves; and the Gun, a cult of terror and violence that cripples the population with fear. The only hope at stopping them has seemingly disappeared–the Red Republic once battled the Gun and the Line, and almost won. Now they’re just a myth, a bedtime story parents tell their children, of hope.
To the west lies a vast, unchartered world, inhabited only by the legends of the Hill People, immortal and powerful who live at one with the earth and its elements. Liv Alverhyusen, a doctor of the new science of psychology, travels to edge of the made world to a spiritually protected mental institution to study the minds of those broken by the Gun and the Line. In its rooms lies an old general of the Red Republic, the one man whose shattered mind just may hold the secret to stopping the Gun and the Line. And either side will do anything to understand how.
Exhilarating, refreshing and suspenseful, The Half-Made World is a fantastical re-imagining of the American West, which draws its influence from steampunk, the American western tradition, and magical realism.
Author Felix Gilman has been nominated for the John W. Campbell award and the Locus Award for best new writer. He is the author of the critically acclaimed The Thunderer and Gears of the City.
