Ye olde contest is now closed! To see a list of the winners at the Galaxy Express, sally forth by clicking here.

Here at The Galaxy Express, we’re ablaze over science fiction romance, and we want to share the incendiary joy. What better way to escape this holiday than on a journey to a far-flung galaxy where romance knows no bounds?

In short, science fiction romance offers adventurous stories for adventurous readers. Occasionally, to discover that adventure, we need look no further than our own backyard.

To make it easy for readers to claim a science fiction romance of their very own—or three, or four, 12 bloggers have teamed up with 17 authors for your chance to win over 30 science fiction romance books.
