Free SF/Fantasy - Baen Gift Bundle Final Day! (Jul 2002 & 2008, Sep 2005)
If you haven't already noticed, Baen will be removing their old monthly bundles from sale due to the deal with Amazon. The prices of the individual books will be going up as well so if there's anything you've been wanting from their backlist, now is a good time to buy it.
This is apparently slated to happen on Saturday the 15th, which means that there may be just until midnight Eastern US Time to pick up stuff and pass the chain through, depending on whether they have to remove things manually or not (I know that a real person has to add new listings to their site, but I don't know if she also has to take them down as well).
With this in mind, if you are signing up to get the bundles in this chain, please be so kind as to stick around and check back at MR every so often to see if you have received the codes/gotten a request to pass them on so we can get them to as many people as possible before they become invalid.
All 3 codes for these are to be passed on to the next person in line. If you already have the books in a particular month, just PM or forward the unused codes to the next in line.
Remember to check out each bundle in a separate transaction so that you really do pass on all 3 codes. If you're unfamiliar with how the Baen Gift Bundle thing works, I refer you to the instructions in my other thread.
Do not break the chain. I will be very upset if you break the chain. As a precaution, in case of bottlenecks with people's emails going wonky/account blocked from work/etc., I am also backup PM-ing the new codes from my confirmation email copies to the next person in line. I suggest you do the same.
This is what I got right now, much of which contains sequels to what I got earlier (not all the sequels; I'm going to have to spend some time later evaluating which of the two monthly options for Alternate Generals III and Bridge of the Separator and Wolf Who Rules and Best of Jim Baen's Universe will give me the best available mix of other stuff beside them, and I have to redeem some more Planet Baen coupons as well):
Paying the Piper by David Drake
Alternate Generals II by Harry Turtledove
Bolos VI: Cold Steel by Keith Laumer
The Veil of Years by L. Warren Douglas
Old Soldiers by David Weber created by Keith Laumer
The Time of Troubles II by Harry Turtledove (Videssos #2; BoTS will be #3)
Retief's Peace by Keith Laumer and William H. Keith Jr.
Masks of the Outcasts by Andre Norton
Kren of the Mitchegai by Leo Frankowski and Dave Grossman
The Second Coming by John Dalmas
Slanted Jack by Mark L. Van Name
The Best of Jim Baen's Universe II edited by Eric Flint and Mike Resnick (lots of stories by good authors including Nancy Kress and TBOJBU #1 should come with a CD)
Laugh Lines by Ben Bova
Hell Hath No Fury by David Weber and Linda Evans
Exodus by Steve White and Shirley Meier
Paladins II: Knight Moves by Joel Rosenberg
I will shortly be away from computer access for several hours for finals, so I have arranged for koland, who will be more available, to be the next person in line. The first person to claim this should please PM koland via her other thread to start the chain, and post in this thread to indicate that they've done so.
Thank you kindly for your cooperation.

PM to koland - oops!
I read through everything, then read again and saw your note about koland at the very end. I was sort of on auto-pilot from all the other bundles and wasn't expecting the change of plans set up at the end of your post, sorry.
