Free books from Tor

Hi everybody, this turned up in my twitter feed and I thought that I'd share*. Karl Schroeder and Tor are offering his novel Sun of Suns for free from April 25th from the Tor website. Details at:
http://www.kschroeder.com/weblog/dow...-of-suns-ebook

Karl Schroeder also offers his first novel, and various samples free on his website as well.

Also of possible interest, it appears that if one registers at Tor.com they have free e-books, comics, wall papers and other stuff periodically. Most are limited time offers, but some stay free. I've taken the liberty of digging out a couple of the links to some of the free stuff I found there. To get these, you must be registered with, and signed into Tor.com (I think. I was and they worked.)

-From Jane Lindskold, The Buried Pyramid in various drm free formats
http://www.tor.com/blogs/2008/11/jan...midfree-e-book

-From Lone Star Stories, an online anthology, a free collection of short fiction in PDF, The Lone Star Stories Reader
http://www.tor.com/blogs/2009/04/lon...eader-for-free

There may be more, but that's all I could find that were still being offered.

A big thank you to these authors and Tor for making these available!

*I have no affiliation with Tor, or any of the authors mentioned here, nor do I profit from this in any way.

I'm not exactly clear on the Sun of Suns deal. If I sign up at Tor, I'll automatically get a link to the free book on 4/25?

I signed up to download The Buried Pyramid, so am I done? I'll get the 'Suns' link without asking for it?

I'm also not clear on how to find the other free books they mention.

The Sun of Suns giveaway was from the Tor new site countdown free book giveaway from 4 years ago. I still have my email announcing it on 4/25/08. (Yes, I should clean out my old mail someday.)

Oh. Yup, clean out your mail, and I guess the OP should clear out his twitter feed, too.

And I see I missed the free audio book version by a few years as well.

Rats.

It looks like they gave it away on Amazon about three months later, too.

Oh! I actually downloaded The Buried Pyramid (and Charles de Lint's Spiritwalk) back when they were first made freebies, but I somehow deleted my copies. Now I can get them back! Yay!

I haven't read Spiritwalk (yet), but I HAVE read TBP and I remember it being a fun historical fantasy/archaeological mystery adventure thing, with a bit of romance (I think?).

Oops. Apologies to everyone, it appears I am in error. Don't know how I managed that one, but previous posters are correct, the deal was over long ago. Sorry to anyone confused, I feel rather silly now.
