Steampunk Giveaway

As you know, a theme month, or months as the case is, wouldn't be complete without a giveaway! Yet, the giveaway must be very appropriate... hence, this giveaway. Everyone needs a book to live by, a bible is such a thing. Of course, I'm not trying to be sacred or profane, but chose the lesser meaning of bible, which is any book, reference work, periodical, etc., accepted as authoritative, informative, or reliable. This is the definitive authority on Steampunk, which is what this summer is about! So enter away... also, the more people who enter to win, the more books I will add to the pot... as you can see, there is definitely more now!

Prizes (the person whose name is drawn first gets first choice, etc, etc.):

*The Steampunk Bible by Jeff Vandermeer
*The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen  by Alan Moore, illustrated by Kevin O'Neill
*The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Book 1: Phoenix Rising Signed and Inscribed to you, by the authors, Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris!
*The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Book 2: The Janus Affair Signed and Inscribed to you, by the authors, Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris!

The Rules:
1. Open to EVERYONE, just because you haven't been following me all along doesn't mean you don't matter, you just get more entries if you prove you love me by following.
2. Please make sure I have a way to contact you if your name is drawn, either your blogger profile or a link to your website/blog or you could even include your email address with your comment(s).
3. Giveaway ends Sunday, September 30th at 11:59PM CST 
4. How to enter:

Answer me this: What is your favorite Steampunk book?
5. And for those addicted to getting extra entries:
  • +1 for answering the question above
  • +2 for becoming a follower
  • +10 if you are already a follower
  • +10 for each time you advertise this contest - blog post, sidebar, twitter (please @eliza_lefebvre), etc. (but you only get credit for the first post, so tweet all you like, and I thank you for it, but you'll only get the +10 once). Also please leave a link! There's a handy code on the side for your sidebars!
  • +25 if you comment on any of the posts this summer, with something other than "I hope I win" or a variation thereof.
Good luck to all, may the odds be ever in your favor. Yeah... it's that kind of day.

I have to pick just one? I would say Gail Carriger's Timeless (mostly for the expanded role of Akeldama, Biffy, and Lyall), although I also have a soft spot for Lev A.C. Rosen's All Men of Genius. It's like a steampunk mad science Hogwarts with cross-dressing and references to Shakespeare and Wilde!
