Free/Bargain Science Fiction/Fantasy May 2013

A thread for May.

We point out free and bargain SF/Fantasy titles to each other. Please don't post any self-published books, and please do a search before posting to avoid duplicates.

Be aware that many freebies are only free for a day, so grab them fast. Enjoy!

(I have just copied the info from the April thread to start this one)

Price drop to 77p on the UK site ($1.19 US) - De Novo Syndrome (A Novel of the DMB Files) by David Mark Brown and Jim Buckner

'He'll do anything to get her back, including evolve. When Jim Buckner's daughter is kidnapped, his obsession shifts from discovering the lost genetic sequence for awakening human immortality to discovering who took her and how to get her back. The journey reveals a hibernating side-effect of his research, telekinesis. At the heart of a secret war raging for over a century, Buckner discovers how far he'll go to get his daughter back--as far as it takes. A father-daughter story written as paranoid thriller, De Novo Syndrome centers on a father learning to dedicate his heart, rather than his work, to his daughter. The fact his life's work has been to save his daughter's life, complicates the matter.'

Some L. Ron Hubbard freebies at Amazon (US)...

Invaders Plan, The: Mission Earth Volume 1
Quote:
Earth does not exist. . . .

Or so they want you to believe.

Who are they? What do they want? And who do they think they are?

They are the Voltarians of Voltar—an empire 110 planets strong.

They are already among us. And the invasion is about to begin . . . in a hundred years or so.

Or is it?

The truth is far more sinister. Undercover, underground and out of sight, the invaders plan what may in fact be a massive diversion. In the darkest recesses of Voltar’s Coordinated Information Apparatus (otherwise known as the CIA), a tyrant of terror sets out to exploit the invasion in order to seize power. All that stands in his way is a planet that doesn’t exist.

Discover a world where corporations rule and political corruption is rife. Where governments are driven by oil and controlled by drugs. Where global warming is getting hotter by the minute . . . and a scorching love affair could determine the fate of millions. Where a cosmic conspiracy is about to hit home and the intergalactic intrigue knows no bounds.

They call it Blito-P3. We call it Earth.

You can’t afford to look the other way. It’s the end of the world as you know it . . . and the beginning of one of the most spectacular, thought-provoking, and wildly inventive works of science fiction and espionage of our time.

“You will lose sleep. You will miss appointments. If you don’t force yourself to set it down and talk to your family from time to time, you may be looking for a new place to live. Reading The Invaders Plan is simply the most fun you can have by yourself.” —ORSON SCOTT CARD

Spy Killer (Stories from the Golden Age)
Quote:
Discover intrigue and suspense. Kurt Reid may be innocent of the murder he's charged with (and of grand larceny, for that matter), but he's got no time to be thrown in jail and defend himself. Instead, Reid flees to pre-Communist China and Shanghai, the exotic city of mystery and death.
Reid takes refuge in a tea house where he meets White Russian Varinka Savischna, whom he manages to rescue from certain death. As beautiful as she is smart, she recruits him in her crusade against Chinese intelligence services. Unfortunately, Reid manages to get himself captured by the Chinese and blackmailed into pursuing and assassinating a Japanese spy.

Now Reid must enter the cloak-and-dagger world of espionage and intrigue, where everything and everyone is not who or what they appear to be. "...novella length adventure-cum-mystery stories based in 1930's China offer further evidence of Hubbard's pulp-action mastery." —Ellery Queen

Phantom Patrol, The (Stories from the Golden Age)
Quote:
A triumphant tale of heroes, honor and impossible odds. On the trail of dope runners on the high seas, Coast Guard CPO Johnny Trescott receives an SOS from a transport plane that's crashed and sinking. With lives at stake, Johnny must cut off his pursuit and rescue the downed plane.

Unfortunately, the dope-smuggling pirate he's chasing hears the same alarm, and greets Johnny and his crew at the crash scene with something far more than they bargained for."This is a rip-roaring, old-fashioned adventure like the kind they don't make any more. A blast for Hubbard fans and pulp fiction lovers."—Library Journal

It isn't often I agree with Jon, but i just can't make myself read an L. Ron Hubbard pot-boiler.

Phoenix Pick free ebook for May

Free ebook for May is AI UNBOUND by Nancy Kress

Link to the newletter.

Quote:
Nancy Kress is the author of twenty-two novels and numerous short stories. She is perhaps best known for the “Sleepless” trilogy that began with Beggars in Spain. Her fiction has won four Nebulas, two Hugos, a Sturgeon, and the 2003 John W. Campbell Award (for Probability Space).

These two outstanding stories give us a fascinating look into the evolution of artificial intelligence and the impact it has on human society.

The special price didn't last long, maybe it was a mistake? I bought the individual books Before They Are Hanged (#2) and Last Argument of Kings (#3) for $1 each.

Cloud Warrior, the first book of the Amtrak Wars, is currently $1.99 at Amazon (US).

Quote:
In 2015, nuclear war burns the cities of humanity to rubble, turns the air to poison, and grass to the color of blood: most of the world population dies. By the year is 2989, when THE AMTRAK WARS takes place, humanity is split into two groups - the Trackers, members of the Amtrak Federation who live in a complex of advanced underground cities, and the Mutes, who have survived on the surface, adapting to the radiation to become stronger through mutations. The Amtrak Federation is dedicated to reclaiming the surface world for humanity, and for centuries, the Amtrak Federation expands, and kills or enslaves Mutes in their path. But eventually the Mutes, with their magical powers, prove to be a match for even the Tracker’s advanced technology. Steve Brickman, a newly-trained Tracker wingman, joins an elite unit making an major strike against the Mutes. But when Steve is shot down and captured by Mutes, he falls in love with one of the ‘enemey’ and learns that there is more to these people than the Federation decrees. Cloud Warrior is the first in Patrick Tilley’s international bestselling futuristic epic, The Amtrak Wars. The film rights for the series have been optioned and are currently in development.

I'm not sure it was an error. They must have had some kind of one day sale last night. I managed to get the whole Abercrombie trilogy for a dollar. Now it's back to $34.95! Wow I saved a bundle!
