Free SF/Fantasy March 2012 Monthly Baen Bundle Gift Thread (formerly Webscription)
February's Webscription went very well,(thanks to Ajax) so here's the next bundle - March 2012 Monthly Baen Bundle. For those who don't know Webscriptions is now known as the Monthly Baen Bundle. Same service and you use the same accounts, just a new name and website.
For those new to this: When you purchase a month's bundle, Baen allows you to also gift that bundle to someone that does not have an account.
To participate please reply to this thread and then PM the person above you with your e-mail address (that e-mail address can not have been previously used to create a webscription / baen account).
Once you have the next person's email, you can redeem the promotional code that you received. During the checkout process it will allow you to input the next person's email address, we then repeat as often as we can until the thread dies.
Please also reply to the thread when you have redeemed the code and sent on to the next person so we can keep up where we are in the chain

Received code from camiller, redeemed and passed on to scottken (have confirmation copy in case spamtrap eats it).
I notice they've added a 3rd Charles Sheffield bundle, though I couldn't decide which one had the best mix of books I wanted to get, so I'll wait until my CC kicks into a new billing cycle before deciding.

Just in case this bundle is bringing some of you your first taste of David Weber's Honor Harrington series, A Rising Thunder is the 13th book in the series. Sometimes, when Baen publishes these in hardcover they include a CD with all the previous works in the series (plus usually some other books as a bonus). They did this with Mission of Honor which was the 12th book in the series.
While I have been aware of the CDs for awhile, I have only recently learned that Baen has a fairly liberal license for the CD's such that someone is hosting their content on the net with Baen's tacit blessings. So, if you want to start at the beginning of that series you could go to the Mission of Honor CD at http://baencd.thefifthimperium.com/ and download all of the previous 12 books plus 5 anthologies and 4 other books in other branches of that universe. You can either download entire images of the CDs as ISO or ZIP files, or just download the books individually in the format you want and save some bandwidth (if not yours, his).
Have a great day!
Edit: That said, it wouldn't hurt to reward the munificence of our benefactors by going to baen.com and buying something that isn't on the CDs.
