May Giveaway: King David and the Spiders from Mars

The snow has melted, the grass is green, and the forsythia is blooming. It's spring, I think. (I still hear the furnace running once in a while.)

I'm celebrating spring with a giveaway, a paperback copy of King David and the Spiders from Mars, which contains my fantasy story "Good King David" (read an excerpt here). If your mailing address is outside the US or Canada, I'll gift you an ebook from Amazon.

Praise for King David and the Spiders from Mars:
Dark and enticing, the stories in King David & the Spiders from Mars explore Biblical themes with a paradoxical combination of religious irreverence and respect for the literary richness of the texts. Marked by lush prose, often disturbing at a gut level, these are stories that stay with you. — Ilana Teitelbaum
It is often said that the Bible is the most violent book ever written. This rich tapestry of tales draws on Biblical slaughter, cruelty, and mayhem from ancient times to the modern day. It is a theme anthology that not only keeps you interested in the theme, but makes you look at the source material with new eyes. — Poppy Z. Brite
To enter the giveaway, sign up below. I'll pick the winner on June 1st.

  1. Entered. Is that a public domain image on the cover? Would work perfectly for my "Shadow of Death" tale...

    1. Thanks for entering and good luck. The cover is from the painting "David with the Head of Goliath" by Caravaggio. He's been dead for a few centuries so yes, it's PD.

  2. Entered! Thanks for this, Jeff.
