QSFer Arshad Ahsanuddin has a new version of his amazing Pact Arcanum series out:
The Pact Arcanum Saga is an LGBT science fiction/fantasy vampire epic, crossing genres from space opera to supernatural political thriller. The Pact Arcanum Integrated Omnibus Edition cuts together over a thousand pages of the original five books at a scene-by-scene level, and sometimes line-by-line, to create a chronologically linear narrative (i.e. without flashbacks), collected into one volume.
Additional material has been added to this revised and expanded second edition, including updates to the original text and illustrations.
Magic Requires Sacrifice For millennia, the Sentinels have hunted the vampires with steel and magic. Antonio is the Wind of Fire, the strongest Sentinel of that element, the most powerful spellcaster of his generation. Edgar is a capable Fire Sentinel in his own right, and serves as Antonio’s lieutenant.
Together, the two of them were chosen for a very special mission: to scout out the vampires’ greatest citadel, the Court of Shadows itself, in preparation for the Sentinels’ final assault. Their actions that night will set in motion a destructive chain of events that will echo across supernatural society for generations…. Betrayal and treachery lurk around every corner, and to survive, their descendants must decide who to trust among their metahuman allies, friends, and lovers—before their civilization is plunged into the depths of darkness and bloodshed.
After thirty thousand years of conflict, the war between the four races draws inexorably toward its end, setting them all upon a path to final victory, or to total extinction. Warning: Contains violence, strong language, and non-explicit depictions of LGBT romance/sexuality. Also spaceships.
I will be giving away a complete set of a case-wrapped and illustrated, hardcover print edition of my Pact Arcanum Integrated Ultimate Omnibus. This is a three-volume set, printed in full color on white paper, each book ranging from 450 to 650 pages in length.
The list price of this set is around $300 USD, but I will be giving it away to a randomly selected reader who donates any amount to charity via my LGBT Fundraising Page at:
The contest will run until midnight (Eastern Time) on August 15th, at which time I will pick a donor from the complete list, using the random number generator at https://www.random.org/.
You may enter/donate as often as you wish, for more chances to win. Good luck!

The original Pact Arcanum Saga consisted of five books: Sunset, Cathedral of the Sky, Sunrise, Moonlight, and Starlight. It is best described as non-explicit, near-future, space opera/gay vampire romance. Yes, I realize the irony that I’m a blood doctor who writes about vampires. 😉
