We’ve got another book giveaway for you.

I’m pleased to announce that we’re working with publisher LiberNoctis to give away ebook copies of C.M. Kornbluth’s classic science fiction novel The Syndic.

From my review of the novel,

“What ifs” are the bread and butter of science fiction. What if organized crime overthrew the United States government and took over? What would life be like under the mafia? Would the people of North America be better off? These are the questions C.M. Kornbluth sought to answer in his science-fiction novel The Syndic (1953).

The new edition by LiberNoctis

brings you this classic of science fiction, with foreword and extensive afterword by noted libertarian writer Jeff Riggenbach on the history of the author, the novel, and the politics of mid-20th-century science fiction among Kornbluth’s contemporaries — men such as Isaac Asimov on the Left, Robert Heinlein on the Right, and libertarian science-fiction advocates who sought to redefine the political spectrum through the power of science fiction itself.

We republished Jeff Riggenbach’s Libertarian Tradition Podcast episode on Kornbluth and The Syndic a while back. Be sure to check it out if you missed it, or again if you didn’t. It’s well worth the (re)listen.

We’ll be giving away the ebook in both epub and mobi formats from now until December 15, 2012 at 12:00am EST.

      I’m terribly sorry about that. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I forgot to change that one link at the end of the post from the previous giveaway. The other links, in the book covers and in the text in the sidebar, go to the correct landing page though. The book giveaway landing page for The Syndic explains that existing email subscribers can get the free ebook copies by sharing the link to the landing page on two of their favorite social networks and emailing us about it. I’ll then email the download link to them.
