Alien Romances Is Part Of The Galaxy Express's SFR Holiday Blitz

THOSE WHO WISH TO BE ENTERED IN THE SFR HOLIDAY BLITZ SHOULD ADD A COMMENT TO THIS POST.

See the sidebar for cover art of the prizes to be won in the SFR Holiday Blitz on this blog.

*****

The Galaxy Express streaked onto my radar with Heather's very first post on May 19th, 2008 which was titled "All Aboard -- We're Ready To Launch", had witty subheadings such as "It Takes A Village To Maintain A Lunar Outpost" and "A Wormhole By Any Other Name..." 

I did enjoy Heather's scholarly nod to "Romeo and Juliet"!

The Wormhole paragraph included a live link to this alien romances blog, which was very courteous and kind of Heather, and which resulted in a Google Alert.

I also rather enjoyed thinking about the village. Does anyone else remember a rock group called "The Global Village Trucking Company"?

Moreover, my favorite novel by Isaac Asimov is "The Gods Themselves" and one of the three parts involves a love story on a lunar outpost. What was yours?

How did you discover The Galaxy Express ?
Do you remember which of Heather's posts set fire to your imagination? If so, please tell the story in the comments here, below the official contest announcement which I quote:

  4. I'm an avid Romance reader and slightly more than occasional SciFi reader. I only very recently discovered SciFiRomace genre books and I'm very interested in reading more. I'll be crossing my fingers in hopes of a few freebies to help the pocketbook out a little. :)

  7. This idea for a SFR blitz is fantastic!!
    I found The Galaxy Express through several other authors who directed me to her blog for Steampunk discussions.

  8. What a great contest. I've not read a lot of sci-fi but know I'll love it if it's got romance! Thanks and Happy Holidays!

  9. I am a HUGE fan of romance, and now I would like to expand my reading pleasure and try SF Romance...my daughter really enjoys it, and thinks I might too...so winning this contest would be a wonderful way for me to try it out and share the books with my daughter.

  10. Cy,
    Thank you so much for your support for all the blogs in this event.

    I hope you win lots of books, and that everyone who doesn't win exactly what they wanted will visit you at EbookIsle.net for all their sfr book shopping.

    More people should buy books from Indie stores, especially when the owner is passionate about science fiction, futuristic, fantasy and paranormal romance, as you are.

  13. Loretta,

    Thank you for your kind words. Don't forget to click the links and visit the other 11 blogs in this event, because so many authors have been very generous.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Good luck, Tayluca.

    The trouble with sfr is, the bookstores don't always know where to put us. Help the genre (if it pleases you to do so) by tagging some of the books you've noticed in this event "sfr" or "romance" if you see them on Amazon.

  19. I think I've been looking for Science Fiction Romance all my life. I found "The Galaxy Express" from this blog, and I found "alien romances" because of one person Jacqueline Lichtenberg. I found Jacqueline in 1975 through the book "Star Trek Lives" she gave me the Semi/Gen Universe, and showed me the way to Darkover and I will be forever grateful.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Happy Holidays, everyone! I've been a science fiction romance reader since the 90s. I think I've bought everything remotely SFR that's ever come out, and I still have some of those older Topaz books on my keeper shelf.

    I am trying to remember how I found Galaxy Express, and I think it must've been on a late night web-hopping jaunt that started out on Google and ranged all over the place.

    Favorite article? Lots, but the first one I remember reading is the top 15 couples in SFR.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Dana,

    I am intrigued. I must find the article on the top 15 couples in SFR. I love lists!

    That makes me think, there ought to be a Listmania on Amazon, or a Top Ten list on Chapters.Indigo.com (or is it .ca?) and an EssentiaList on Barnes and Noble bookclubs of top ten sfr couples!

    If only I have time... but I'm writing Grand Fork, and I'm at the stage where I dream about the hero every night, which portends Critical Mass!

    LOL

    ReplyDelete
  39. Robin and Tholix bring up a good point... how we're going to track down the winner.

    I think we'll post the name of the winner at the end of the contest, and include contact info for winners to contact.

    You don't need to post your email address for the public to see.

    Good luck, everyone!

  59. I can't remember how/when I discovered the Galaxy Express, but I'm so glad I did! I always enjoyed SF television shows and movies, but often wished for more of a human element (especially in the novels, which is why I tended not to read them). I'm thrilled to see SF Romance emerge and thrive as a subgenre. WHEEEEEEEEE!!!

  69. Someone just emailed me to ask in the nicest possible way how to find out which books commenters might win on this alien romances blog.

    Eeek. I forgot to write it into the body of the Blitz announcement, but the covers of the seven books that we are donating to the winner are in the sidebar on the right side of the page.

    Seven books! Linnea Sinclair's, Jacqueline's, Susan Kearney's, Susan Sizemore's, Margaret L Carter's, and mine (2).

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thank you Rowena.

    DUSHAU is available in Kindle format and Mass Market Paperback. I can maybe supply other formats if necessary.

    And if, perchance, the winner has already read Dushau, I can substitute one of the sequels, or another item from my backlist.

  76. Answer to question: How did you find Galaxy Express? It was my husband who found it after reading Linnea Sinclair's books (all of them). He's a long time sci-fi fan who decided sci-fi romance was the place to be.

    The Blitz is a great idea!

  91. I didn't even know that there *was* a subgenre of "Science Fiction Romances" until today, and I've read SF for nearly 40 years. I don't see the books mentioned here at my local Books-A-Million in the SF section; are they shelved in a seperate section? Do SFR books get discussed on panels at SF conventions? How very interesting that an entirely new group of SF seems to have appeared as if by magic overnight.

  92. SFR Holiday Blitz -- great way to start a really good holiday. Tor.com and its bloggers lead to everything else--or at least to all the best SF made better by the R.

    Thanks.

  93. I'm thrilled to find sci fi romance bloggers! I read all my older brother's scifi as a girl, quite different than most of my friends back then, That gave me a rich background. Later I found romance novels, and loved them, too. What could be better than both together?

  98. Curt P--
    SFR didn't appear magically, no. It's been there for years but the (re)designation as SFR has been in the past 10 years. Lee/Miller and the Liaden series have been SFR. Asaro has done SFR. Cherryh has-obliquely--and continues to do so. What authors like myself and the others listed here and in The Galaxy Express have done is try to alert readers to CHARACTER-DRIVEN SF, as opposed to plot/theme driven. That's the essence of it.

    Locus mag recently noted my books were essentially David Weber's military SF with a romance subplot.

  110. Mike,

    Everyone who comments at all (as long as it isn't "spam") will be counted for our prize.

    We don't like to set conditions here.

    It looks like Jacqueline Lichtenberg and Margaret L Carter are willing to send ebooks. I can substitute Mating Net and Forced Mate as ebooks, I'm not sure about Linnea, so it is definitely worth overseas readers posting here for a chance to win.

  112. Ah, Mike.

    I see what you mean. Thank you for the heads-up. I have now added wording to the SFR Holiday Blitz blog, and also a comment on Linnea Sinclair's excellent post.

    In a nutshell. No.

    I don't think it would be fair if I were to trawl through Linnea's, Jacqueline's, Margaret's and other posts and decide who meant to post to the SFR Holiday Blitz contest (and who didn't) and then sort out whether they have posted here as well, and would thus be multiplying their chances of winning.

    With a bit of luck, they'll either post or repost here.

    Best,
    Rowena Cherry

  113. SFR Holiday Blitz just wanted to say thanks for the chance of winning and to take the opportunity to wish you Happy Holiday's.

  115. Thee Bree,

    I'm sorry to hear that you have been laid off just before Christmas. It takes a very special employer to do that, doesn't it?

    I think I heard that Baen Books gives away free ebooks all the time. You might check it out.

    I'd love to get my hands on these titles. I'm writing my first novel now and suspect it would be marketed as a science fiction romance. But I definitely need to research this genre and find some great, comparable novels.

  136. Not sure if I can count as SFR reader, the only book that I read which class such is P. J. Farmers "The Lovers", I think.

    Anyways, please add me to the contest. :-)
    I'm in Germany, by the way.

  138. I was a Sci-Fi reader long before I "found" romance. I'm glad I can feed both addictions in one read(well not just one read, more like hundreds or reads and rereads).

  139. Hi All,
    Sorry to come so late to the party. Between the release of RION my newest futuristic release and my daughter's wedding next week, I've been swamped!!! But I wish all of you could win.
