Win 1 of 3 Copies of “The Wurms of Blearmouth” – USA Only

THE WURM OF BLEARMOUTH COVER SMALLI have three copies of The Wurms of Blearmouth by Steven Erikson to give away to U.S. residents, courtesy of Tor.

If you are unfamiliar with this book, you can read my review, with excerpt, here.

The TL;DR version of the review is:

Halfway through The Wurms of Blearmouth by Steven Erikson, I still had no idea what was going on. But, as a rare exception, that didn’t matter thanks to wonderfully weird characters that kept me engaged, and dark events peppered with bizarre humour that made me laugh and ask, “What is going on here?!” Of course, there is also Erikson’s writing style


If you enjoy something that is both grounded and at the same time wonderfully weird; if you like your dark tales mixed with humour, I do recommend The Wurms of Blearmouth, even if newcomers to this world are left with a slight disadvantage. Erikson’s writing style makes up for the disadvantage of not being familiar with the world or its long established characters.

If you are already a fan of The Malazan Book of the Fallen fantasy series and A Malazan Tale of Bauchelain and Korbal Broach series of novellas, I think it is pretty safe to recommend you also read The Wurms of Blearmouth.

You can purchase The Wurms of Blearmouth on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo Books, or wherever books are sold.

  1. Wurms of Blearmouth entry. The Dune-verse is my all time favorite, even if I can think of better places to live, because I am the…

  2. My favorite fantasy world is probably the alternate Australia portrayed in Terry Dowling’s Rynosserus series.
