End of Tor free ebooks deal : Jul 20th

Just a quick message to remind you that Tor's free ebook program will end on the 20th of July.
They say that they will make all the books available "one final time" during the last week.
So you should make sure that you have downloaded all of them correctly before the end of next week.

And for those who have missed some or all of the books so far, this should be the perfect opportunity to get them all.

Go to http://www.tor.com/ to sign up if you haven't already.

EDIT :
For those just tuning in, their last email mentions that the books will be available for download on the site (http://www.tor.com), at least at launch.

Me too, while I already was a Scalzi and Robert Charles Wilson fan, I discovered several new authors through their program. I bought and read Ha'Penny this weekend after reading Farthing for free.

I'm glad I jumped aboard quite a while back, I even like all the wallpapers they've made available weekly. Guess I'll look forward to the "last chance" time to grab the books I missed before signing on! Thanks for the heads up!

Note that all of the previous books are still availble, if you have the URLs originally provided to download them.

Donnageddon posted a link to an article on Bloggasm that discusses whether TORs ebook giveaways increased book sales. The article also mentions that while TOR will stop the free ebooks it is rumored that it will launch a 'new science fiction supersite' on July 20, the anniversary of the first U.S. moon landing. No definite word as of yet.

I, for one, will be glad to get the big "final roundup" email with all of the links. For most of the weeks, I saved them as PDF and HTML. Then, after I learned to use mobi2imp, I wished I had gotten them in PRC. PRC converts very beautifully to IMP and allows me to keep images of covers, as well as allows for extra-large font. That's important, because of my poor vision. So I want to get the whole collection again in MOBI.
