And here's Phoenix Pick's first freebie of the new year - Paul Cook's The Alejandra Variation, available in all major ebook formats. As usual, the link is to the Phoenix Pick newsletter, and the coupon code and instructions for redeeming the code are at the bottom of the newsletter. I also highly recommend that speculative fiction fans subscribe to the newsletter.

Quote:
Paul Cook's fascination with the human dream state is manifested in this novel of a man who is a professional dreamer. Nicholas Tejada is directly interfaced with the super-computer Mnemos Nine, extracting useful data and images from his vivid mindscapes as part of the top-secret government Project Foresee. Tejada experiences his dreams as reality, awakening in the midst of the inception of World War III. When he next arrives, there has been a nuclear holocaust and he is forced to live underground, on the lookout for leftover bombs. As he continues to awaken in the far future he is pursued by a woman whose advances he resists. Paul Cook's scenarios of the future have been called "intriguing" by Publishers Weekly, and his storytelling ability keeps the reader gripped, making The Alejandra Variations an utterly involving, imaginative thriller.

just be aware there is something hinky with Curse of the Chalion - I bought it (several months ago), but now cannot download it via USB or send it via whispersync to any of my Kindles (every one of them "needs to be upgraded" ... ummmm... but there are no upgrades for any of them).

The Desert of Souls by Howard Andrew Jones is available for 1 GBP until 7 January for readers in Europe, according to the author's website. I don't know if it is available for non-European readers, but you could give it a try. I bought it from Kobo for slightly more than a dollar (as it is couponable). Be careful, however, as there are two editions on Kobo - one that is by an American publisher and is >$10 and the other by the European publisher, which is at the bargain price.

This is the first novel in a fantasy series set in Arabia and it has good reviews by readers at Amazon and Goodreads, as well as at several review sites.

I had no problem with it excepting the cover took awhile to appear. You might want to contact customer support.

I bought it a long time back (ETA: actually, two days before you did; same ASIN) and it is completely stuck. I have one of every model Kindle and none of them allow it to be downloaded or sent to.

I dragged it off the one where I originally bought it and liberated it (and it appears to be the second copy of it I have, anyway), so no problem for me, but I've run across this problem before on a file or two at Amazon and will have to spend time on the phone with them to fix it, I know.

The publisher's links to Kobo work, but not if you aren't signed in or are signed in with a US account.

Except these are both new editions, which they are trying to add as not-free Kindle editions, I suspect.

You're absolutely right.. I should have actually looked at the amazon link. Both are marked as Second Editions.
