Thanks for this. I read his Saturn's Children back in 2011 and really liked it. Kobo aren't oferring the special price, so Amazon gets the sale.

river of the dancing gods is this month's free book from phoenix pick. here's their newsletter (the book and how to get it is listed at the top) here
http://www.phoenixpick.com/newsletter/2013-09.htm

Something strange happens to Joe and Marge on the way to El Paso. They run into Throckmorton P. Ruddygore, a strange wizard who informs them that they are going to die in nineteen minutes and eighteen seconds.

But they also have a choice. They can abandon the current world by taking a ferryboat across the Sea of Dreams to a new life in a new world, full of magic, fairies and wonder.

But along with all its wonders, the new world is also the site of an ancient battle still being fought between the forces of Evil and Good, and the forces of Hell threaten to unleash perpetual darkness.Joe and Marge not only need their wits to survive in this unpredictable and dangerous world, but must somehow help prevent the oncoming Armageddon.

According to Luzme other UK retailers also offered this at £1.99 previously, including Kobo.
Don't know when, so they may or may not match the price ?

Today's Kindle Daily Deal is Ilona Andrew's Magic Bites: A Special Edition of the First Kate Daniels Novel for $1.99. As is sometimes the case, this is a publisher price and B&N also has it at $1.99 although Kobo and Sony still have it at full price. I haven't read this, but I've heard good things, so I'm picking it up at this price.

Note that there are two editions of this book and both are on sale for $1.99, but I've linked to the special edition with bonus material.

Thanks. I think they need a website editor though... The free book page has "River of the Dancing Godl" and the files are named DangingGods.*.

Looks like L. Ron Hubbard's Stories from the Golden Age has another freebie this month. Not sure it's exactly Sci-Fi, but they're comparing it to Indiana Jones, so I'll post it here. Feel free to move it to a more appropriate thread:

Tomb of the Ten Thousand Dead is free at both Amazon and B&N.

Thanks to Cromag for this:

Author's description:

Quote:
Here are nine tales of Henghis Hapthorn, foremost freelance discriminator of Old Earth in the planet's penultimate age. Included are the six stories that ran in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction (and were previously collected in The Gist Hunter and Other Stories), leading up to the events that began the first Hapthorn novel, Majestrum, plus three more.
A "freelance discriminator" is similar to the "private investigator" of our time.

A few weeks ago I spent $2.99 on this anthology, and I was happy. The author's style is similar to Jack Vance's, but seems natural, not "forced." I found the connection to the Dying Earth universe a bit strained, but unnecessary -- they're good stories that stand on their own. I liked it well enough to leave a good review.

I was just going through my library at Smashwords and noticed that this ebook is now FREE. I don't know if this is a limited time promotion or a permanent reduction, but this is really worth a look. (BTW, last I checked it was 99 cents at Barnes & Noble.)

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/344923


Also free at Amazon US and Amazon UK


[Although published by the author, I'm including it in this thread because most of the short stories in it have been professionally published in F&SF. Paul.]

Amazon has some Orbit novellas on sale for $0.99 (regularly $2.99). Here's a search that should find them - just scroll past the free samplers:
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?un...bit&sort=price

Here's a few of the titles:
The Butcher of Anderson Station: A Story of The Expanse - James S.A. Corey
http://www.amazon.com/The-Butcher-An...dp/B0052AHUYM/

Gods of Risk: An Expanse Novella (The Expanse) - James S.A. Corey
http://www.amazon.com/Gods-Risk-Expa...dp/B008CJ241O/

Perfect Shadow: A Night Angel Novella - Brent Weeks
http://www.amazon.com/Perfect-Shadow...dp/B004RQTXDI/

Spirit's Oath: An Eli Monpress Novella (The Legend of Eli Monpress) - Rachel Aaron
http://www.amazon.com/Spirits-Oath-M...dp/B006IIH7WW/

Blooded: A Jessica McClain Novella - Amanda Carlson
http://www.amazon.com/Blooded-Jessic...dp/B0078XGUZQ/

At $3, I think these were overpriced, but for $1, I'll probably bite.
I think they're probably on sale elsewhere, too.
