Pretty Magic Subscription Drive Prize

As you may have read elsewhere, if you subscribe to Say... by the end of the month, your name will be entered into a drawing. The big prize is this:



And what that is, is an extremely limited edition chapbook that we produced a few weeks back. Just six numbered copies exist, and this one is signed by all the contributors (I believe it's number 2 of 6--I don't have it at hand to check; if I'm wrong I'll come back in and correct this so that nobody will ever believe you if you claim I said something else). Gwenda described it like this:

"It contains the work of Scott Westerfeld (first chapter of Peeps, due out in September), Justine Larbalestier (first chapter of Magic Lessons, the second volume in the Magic or Madness trilogy, due out next year), Ysabeau Wilce (an excerpt from a new short story "The Unkindest Cut") and me* (first chapter of new novel-in-progress Roanoke, hopefully due out at some unknown point in the future). It's signed by all the contributors and it's beautiful."

You can subscribe to Say... via PayPal, which you can use even if you don't have an account because they also basically act as a credit card processing service. Just click the appropriate button below. Alternatively, you can use Project Pulp.

If you already have the latest issue, please let us know and we'll start you with #6, Say...what's the combination? which is due out later this year. If you're already a subscriber, we can add another two issues to your current subscription so you'll have a shot at the prize.

By subscribing (or extending) now, you also lock in the $5 per issue price for two more issues. We will be raising the individual issue price starting with #6 and two-issue subscriptions will go up in price as well.

Say...has there ever been a clearer time to act?

In the US, only 10 dollars:




In Canada, only 11 dollars:




Other countries, only 12 dollars:





Winner to be chosen by random drawing on July 1.
