The Long Earth (Long Earth Series #1)
by Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter

This book is marked down again. You can download it for $1.99 at B&N

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-...the+long+earth

Below is the blurb:
1916: the Western Front. Private Percy Blakeney wakes up. He is lying on fresh spring grass. He can hear birdsong, and the wind in the leaves in the trees. Where has the mud, blood and blasted landscape of No Man's Land gone?

2015: Madison, Wisconsin. Cop Monica Jansson is exploring the burned-out home of a reclusive (some said mad, others dangerous) scientist when she finds a curious gadget - a box containing some wiring, a three-way switch and a...potato. It is the prototype of an invention that will change the way Mankind views his world for ever.

And that is an understatement if ever there was one...

Thanks.. I've had hits and misses from both of these authors, so I checked it out from my local Library's Overdrive.

Great price for a great book. I highly recommend it. It's also DRM free since it's published by Tor.

Those Wilson's books are part of larger deal: http://torforgeblog.com/2014/06/23/s...sale-for-2-99/

Be careful though: Ventus is under a Creative Commons license, so you can get it for free (for instance here: http://www.kschroeder.com/my-books/v...downloads-page )

Outside the US, all Wilsons' books are available under the "SF Gateway" imprint.

I got the DRM-free version of Spin in a bundle (HumbleBundle?) some time ago. Before it was available from SF Gateway, I think. I already had the paperback. And, although the book was interesting, I didn't completely love it.

Edit: It was Humble eBook Bundle 2.

Just tried it and it works from the US, not sure about anywhere else.

I had a PM in warning.

But pirate sites are seldom HTML only, rather lots of PDFs and other downloads plus offshore location.

So I query "Looks Like" ?

If anyone knows how, informing the author would be a good work.
