You're all very welcome!

For horror fans looking for ideas: With the other coupons I got a couple of Graham Masterton and I'm trying out some from my wishlist. Haven't read them yet so I don't know if they are any good.

Conrad Williams

Decay Inevitable

Quote:
Product Description
Sean Redman is a failed policeman who cannot escape the job. Will Lacey is a husband who witnesses the birth of a monster. Cheke is a killing machine programmed to erase every trace of an experiment gone horribly wrong... These strands all come together in this dark and visceral fantasy. Decay Inevitable charts the badlands of horrifying dreams and demons, where a black market in unspeakable goods is discovered. A race is on to unearth the secrets of the soul... secrets woven into the fabric of death itself.

About the Author
Conrad Williams was born in Cheshire in 1969. He is the author of three novels, four novellas and a collection of his best short fiction. His most recent book, THE UNBLEMISHED, won the international Horror Guild Award for Best Novel. He is also a past recipient of the British Fantasy Award and the Littlewood Arc Prize.

He has some other books there also.

Phil Rickman

Curfew

Quote:
Every night for 400 years, a curfew bell has tolled from the church tower of Crybbe. Tradition is very important in this quiet, sombre town... It's something an outsider wouldn't understand. But is it merely superstitious ritual, or is it the sole defense against an ancient evil?
http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/Curfe...4rg/page1.html

For Ramsey Campbell fans, Charles L. Grant is supposed to have a similar style. He has a series of books based in a town called Oxrun, and the first one is available at Kobo.

The Hour of the Oxrun Dead

Quote:
Product Description

The Hour of the Oxrun Dead was a breakthrough novel for Charles L. Grant. It was the first of many books dealing with Oxrun Station, his invented, cursed locale that is probably only surpassed by Lovecraft’s Arkham and King’s Castle Rock in the minds of horror fans. First appearing in 1977, it helped usher in the golden age of horror fiction in the 1980s. Character-driven and emotionally wrenching, The Hour of the Oxrun Dead’s subtlety stands in sharp contrast to the “gore galore” style that would come to dominate horror fiction.

P.S. In the other thread they say welcome5us and welcome5ca are both good for $5 off.
Wow, Thanks!

Hrm. This helped me make up my mind: I am purchasing a 10 dollar GC. If Kobo continue like this I'll get a lot of books for those 10 dollars. ( I have saved 40 dollar so far )

Hello all. Long-time lurker, first time posting to note that a lot of Terry Pratchett's Discworld books are available from a non-Agency publisher (Transworld Digital). I just picked up a couple for $1.03 each and a couple of $0.29 each thanks to y'all.

Now I've ordered a couple of cookbooks by Isa Chandra Moskowitz: Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World: 75 Dairy-Free Recipes for Cupcakes That Rule (69 cents after $10-off coupon) and, just to balance things out, Appetite for Reduction: 125 Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes ($3.09 after 75% off coupon).

Great deal but the frustration is why I don't buy from Kobo EVER! Tried to enter my billing address 4 times to use the PayPal option. It keeps coming back as error on billing address. I think I know my address! So frustrating. Yeah, you can get 90% off if you are willing to pull your hair out!

Sorry to hear about your troubles chilady1. Perhaps if you tried a credit card? I've bought about 50 books from Kobo and never had an issue with purchasing.

Well, if you want my advice .....
if you are going to pay via Paypal there won't be an address check anyway. Just find a working address and go with it.

I've actually had a couple of people recently tell me they've had a very hard time setting up a Kobo account.

By chance, do you have any hyphens in the numbers in your address, or punctuation? I have a problem at some sites for those reasons.

Now, what can top this for a great start to the weekend? Maybe cupcakes?
It's funny that people would say this-I have bought about 50 books from Kobo and I've never even encountered an agency book! I was beginning to think that Kobo was somehow exempt from the whole agency pricing. I know I've tried using codes on Sony's service and was never able to find a book because everything I've tried was not applicable to to agency pricing.
I'm not buying no-name books either-I generally browse through the list of NYT bestsellers to see if there's anything interesting. Weird.

For the romance fans, there's a Mary Jo Putney bundle that's eligible for the discount (final cost $1.01 I believe).
