Not sure how long these will be on sale--I found them through the Orbit newsletter which did not say.

The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie $2.99 published Feb 2019 by Hachette/Orbit. GR rating 4.06 with 1,951 ratings

This looks to be fantasy rather than SF. From publisher's description
"Gods meddle in the fates of men, men play with the fates of gods, and a pretender must be cast down from the throne in this masterful first fantasy novel from Ann Leckie"

https://www.amazon.com/Raven-Tower-An...


The Wolf in the Whale Published by Hachette/Orbit Jan 2019 GR rating 4.22, but only 610 ratings so far

https://www.amazon.com/Wolf-Whale-Jor...

Fantasy set in approx 1000 A.D, based on folk tale (I guess) where "a wolf that runs into the ocean and becomes a whale"

I read the first few sentences, snickered, and bought. Hope it wasn't a mistake.

I was just able to buy Ian McDonald's River of Gods from Arc Manor, a publisher, I guess. They had both the epub and the mobi format. It should be good until Monday

I am not sure how to tell you to get the book. I am on an email list from Arc Manor. They usually offer three books every week or so in an email, and I almost never buy them because I have so many ebooks I will never get them all read. This one is on our list, however.

I can't remember how I got on the email list

They say in the email if you are having trouble getting the deal, go to www.PublishersPick.com. and here is another website that might be it. http://www.phoenixpick.com/index2.htm

or there's a website with the arc manor name and logo but it appears to be a self publishing outfit, not one with books to sell. https://www.manorbookdesign.com/

If you guys figure out how to get on this mailing list, put the info here, please, so others can benefit.

It's $7.49 if you just go to Amazon to buy it.

Free library here Baen books. 72 books. It emails you a copy of a book. My Kindle copy of Bedlam Boyz by Ellen Guon seems to work fine, although it's in that format where it skips a line between paragraphs. Don't look a gift book in the format, I guess.

Also, there are links to other books that are not free.

https://www.baen.com/allbooks/categor...

Also, a place to download Jim Baen-related things, but it sent an iso file (??) and I got a warning message and so deleted. Maybe you guys are smarter and can figure it out better than I can. I can't even tell what format, although there are ways to change between.

http://baencd.freedoors.org/

Both of these sites seem to be heavy on military SF. Weber and Ringo. In fact, some might be duplicated, but I don't have time right now to check

And finally, here's a place to get a big amount of data at once, and I think for free, but I have not tried it. It appears to download cd or iso files. (whatever an iso file is). There's one file called "The Honorverse," so I suspect a bunch of David Weber's Honor Harrington will be present . . . unfortunately I only made it through the first few and didn't like them much--too bad for me.

Disclaimer: I have no idea how safe these sites are. If my computer starts to have problems I will let you know. However, I am running a Mac, and therefore, your results may differ!
