The Kindle Science Fiction deal of the day is The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick for $1.99
Quote:
“The single most resonant and carefully imagined book of Dick’s career.” – New York Times

It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a war—and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan.

This harrowing, Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to wake.

Winner of the Hugo Award
The audiobook can be had from Audible for $3.99 with the Whispersync for Voice for owning the Kindle version.

Not sure how long these have been discounted, but I haven't seen them mentioned before. Special prices seem to be at US shops only. OmniLit has them all at $0.99. Kobo, B&N, Amazon, etc. have some of them at $0.99 others at $1.99.

Sheri S. Tepper, The Family Tree, $0.99 at OmniLit
Sheri S. Tepper, Singer from the Sea, $0.99 at OmniLit [edit: now $1.99]
Sheri S. Tepper, The Visitor, $0.99 at OmniLit [edit: now $1.99]
Sheri S. Tepper, The Fresco, $0.99 at OmniLit [edit: now $2.99]

Edit: This seems to be a publisher sale, the original prices were $5.99 - $7.99, the publisher sale prices (from the HarperCollins website) are $0.99 - $2.99, so at $0.99 Omnilit has some of them below the publisher sale price.

Edit: These four books are at the top of OmniLit's best sellers list. Prices are now back up to the publisher sale price.

Free today on Amazon -The Kaiser Affair (The Drifting Isle Chronicles) by Joseph Robert Lewis
'When a master thief escapes from prison, detective Bettina Rothschild must put him back behind bars before the scandalous fiasco destroys the Ministry of Justice. Her investigation leads from decaying cemeteries where ravens conspire to warehouses where wondrous machines are built in secret, and even to the fabled Drifting Isle above the city of Eisenstadt where an ancient tomb hides a deadly secret.

The relentless chase proves taxing for a young woman who relies on her cane and her steamcarriage to get about, but that's where a good husband steps in. While Bettina picks locks and interrogates suspects, her beloved Arjuna defends her from the most brutal and bizarre assassins in Eisenstadt.

But as the clock ticks down, Bettina finds too many questions still remain. How did the thief escape from prison? How can he afford to hire so many killers? And why would he go to the Drifting Isle only to steal a giant beetle?'

Thanks for the heads up on OmniLit. I've had them on my list to investigate after BoB went belly up. Since then, I've been buying from Diesel when they were cheaper than Kobo. I haven't read any of Tepper's stuff although I see her name pop up from time to time. I picked up all four from OmniLit and will give her a try.

Thanks. Grabbed them from OmniLit which gave me enough with past purchases for a 10 for 1 free book voucher.

Seven of Greg Egan's books that are published outside the US by Hachette (and sell for £4.99 in UK and over $10 in Aust./Canada/NZ), are now being self-published for the US market on Amazon and iTunes at $2.99 each. See the author's announcement dated 30 July.

I'm not sure whether $2.99 is a limited-time special or will be the normal US price.

The seven books are: Quarantine, Distress, Diaspora, Teranesia, Schild's Ladder, Luminous, Oceanic.

Mine too. But I really think its a bit rich that we (in Oz) have to pay $12.99 via itunes... but its $2.99 in the US. Talk about being done over So... No sale.

That's because, as stated in the previous post, it's a different publisher.

Amazon (US) has several Andre Norton books for .99 cents. Many of the Witch World series are included. I picked up several of the shorter (around 150 some odd pages) books I didn't yet have.
