Giveaway: Flashback by Dan Simmons

The United States is near total collapse. But 87% of the population doesn't care: they're addicted to flashback, a drug that allows its users to re-experience the best moments of their lives. After ex-detective Nick Bottom's wife died in a car accident, he went under the flash to be with her; he's lost his job, his teenage son, and his livelihood as a result.
Nick may be a lost soul but he's still a good cop, so he is hired to investigate the murder of a top governmental advisor's son. This flashback-addict becomes the one man who may be able to change the course of an entire nation turning away from the future to live in the past.
A provocative novel set in a future that seems scarily possible, FLASHBACK proves why Dan Simmons is one of our most exciting and versatile writers.

  1. What comes to my mind is the time right after hubby and I got married. We lived in a 3 story condo and hubby was turning out the lights and heading up the stairs at bedtime. He misjudged the stairway location in the dark, and actually fell down the basement stairs instead of going up. Thankfully, he didn't get hurt, but we have laughed about it many times over the years. Those were the good old days!

    Thanks for a great giveaway, please count me in.

  3. One that my husband and I were just talking about the other day. While on the Oregon coast we climbed down a very rocky path to get closer to the ocean. While sitting on the rocks with the waves crashing just a few feet away a sea lion surfaced, he did an actual double take when he saw the humans on the rocks.

  13. Sounds like a thrilling read.

    Funny Flashback? Oh yeah. Many!

    I gotta say, though, I love it when I remember my daughter as a toddler singing (while rocking back and forth) "I'm a Saliva, I'm gonna make it!" (original song is Destiny's Child "I'm a Survivor")

    Oooh, fun! Okay, here is my flashback (weird but true): One halloween I was late coming home from work, and - as usual - had left my apt back door unlocked. Well, by the time I'd got up the stairs to my apt I had to go *pee* really, really bad lol
    So there I am, I go into my dark bathroom, proceed to sit down, when next to the wall beside me comes this hideous sound and two huge glowing eyes staring at me out of the dark.
    One of my best friends had punked my bathroom with a huge, motion sensored fake owl right beside the toiled - hidden next to the wall!!! I about had a heart attack lol

  19. A funny flashback ... hmm. We love to recall something my daughter would say when she was little and learning the alphabet. She would say "ABCDEFGHIJK and a little pea..." It was so cute, as that is what she heard and interpreted as the alphabet. We still like to razz her about it sometimes!

  20. I am a GFC follower. Thanks for the contest.

  21. Thank you Freda! I look forward to reading Flashback!

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
