This is GeekyLibrary’s third giveaway. This time we’re letting the winner pick which, of three, books they’d like. All the books available in this giveaway are used, but all three are signed by the author.
Non-fiction: Mary Roach’s Gulp
Mary Roach is the best-selling non-fiction author who wrote Stiff, Bonk and Packing for Mars. This is her newest book and was signed by her during her event at Powell’s last year.
Fantasy: Jo Walton’s Among Others
Jo Walton won the Hugo Award for Best Novel for her book Among Others and along with being an amazing writer, she’s a total science fiction and fantasy fan, as proved by her non-fiction What Makes This Book so Great. While she was on tour to promote her newest novel, My Real Children, we were able to meet her during her Portland stop.
Science Fiction: Toh EnJoe’s Self Reference ENGINE
A Japanese writer, Toh EnJoe’s mind-boggling bookSelf-Reference ENGINE was translated to english and then nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award for Distinguished Science Fiction. During the award ceremony at Norwescon, he and the translator read an excerpt from the book so the audience could hear it in both japanese and english. Later that night, the author was honored with a Special Citation.
Contest entries close September 24th at 5pm PT and we’ll pick a winner shortly after that. We’ll get in touch with the winner to get an address and find out which book of the above three we’re going to send them.

I DEFINITELY want “Self Reference Engine”. It sounds like a good match for my interest in sci-fi and intra-personal knowledge.
Def Among Others!!! 🙂
I want to read Gulp. It sounds fascinating. I’ve had it on my to read list for a while. Thanks!
Self-Reference ENGINE sounds fascinating. Any novel that gets compared to Lem has my attention!
Definitely Gulp! I read Packing to Mars earlier this year, which was my first Mary Roach book. Love her writing style!
“Gulp” has been on my list for a long time. 🙂 Best of luck to all, and thank you for offering this giveaway!
I want to win Gulp! It’s been on my TBR list for ages. Thanks!
