Baen Books Donates to the Troops

I've posted this all over the Bar, but here it is on my blog, too, why not? Baen Books has graciously donated 100 books to the Barfly Baking Brigade to package up and ship overseas to some of the Barflies who're serving in the US Military, fighting the good fight in the GWOT.

The books have all been labeled and gift wrapped, so no one will know what's inside until they rip it open--hopefully, no one's gonna actually try to save any of this wrapping paper *grin* Every present is a winner 'cause they're all Baen, and that means they're all good.

The labels say...well, here take a look. Here's a shot of one of the Lois McMaster Bujold titles which carries a "secret prize" - like Cracker Jack but better 'cause this prize is actually a collector's item. According to Lois, these cards were printed incorrectly by her TSK publisher (not Baen), and had to be redone--making this version a limited edition collector's item. There are five Bujold titles in each batch of books going to our three locations. Only three of the Bujolds have a card hidden inside. It's a real treasure hunt now! Visit Lois's Dendarii Nexus to see the full cover art for TSK - it's something else, huh? Wonder if there'll be cards for the second half--and if they, too, will have typos and needs be reprinted *smirk*
