Are you a blogger? Do you have an established blog?
Would you write a review of Jim Baen's Universe in your blog?
We are offering a free copy of Issue 3 to bloggers who agree to post an online review by June 30. This issue contains Mike Resnick's Hugo-nominated story, "All the Things You Are" as well as stories by Gregory Benford and Gene Wolfe.
Here's how this deal works:
1--You send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your email address and the URL where you'll post the review.
2--We email you a copy of Issue 3 (PDF and HTML versions).
3--You promise to post a review by June 30 2007.
4--We link to your blog.
There is no requirement that the review be positive (although we can hope it is), only that it be posted. We would like it to contain a link to the Baen's Universe homepage, too.
This offer is open to everyone, so feel free to spread the word.

Also, if you would, please include in the email request where you saw this offer. (I just want to know if anyone ever pays any attention to anything I post.)
