Freebies and bargains
« on: September 04, 2014, 04:53:43 PM »
A thread for pointing each other in the direction of freebies and bargains, so we can snap them up before they are gone. (Not your own publications, though, please use the Promote Your Projects board for that.)

Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer, first in his Southern Reach trilogy, is currently free on Kindle. I've heard lots of good things about it.

Worth taking a look at Amazon today if you like comics - lots of Dark Horse books going for a pound or two on Kindle, including Buffy Season 9 Vols 1 and 2, Hellboy, BPRD, Lobster Jones and Star Wars Tales 1, 2 and 4, and the prose Hellboy books by Mark Chadbourn, Tim Lebbon and Mark Morris, plus some other books like Afterlife with Archie and Suicide Squad. Can't say the Kindle app is my favourite way to read digital comics, but some good bargains there.

There's a free Tad Williams novella on Amazon at the moment: God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlepig. Ties in with the trilogy that began with The Dirty Streets of Heaven.

There are a couple of mentions of the BFS in Rob Hansen's THEN, a history of UK fandom up to 1980. It's available free along with several other ebooks here, to encourage donations to the TransAtlantic Fan Fund: http://taff.org.uk/ebooks.php

If you like comics, worth looking at the sales on Comixology today: https://www.comixology.co.uk/comics-sale

Hundreds of Dark Horse books are half-price or cheaper, including Conan, Groo, and Usagi Yojimbo, and lots of chunky DC collections are going for a few quid, and all the collections of Invincible and The Walking Dead are on sale.

(Good thing I just got paid!)
