New freebie from harper collins

The 6th freebie from harper collins is now available at harpercollinsebooks.com.
It called Emissaries from the Dead: Andrea Court Series Book 1.

Do I feel the hot wind of Dante's Inferno blowing across my neck for downloading outside the US

Darnit!

It won't let me download. Keeps telling me that I don't have the right software.

Oh well, I'll go find other free books

These are free, but not DRM-free. If you bought the MicroSoft (LIT) version, it is only downloadable using Windows Internet Explorer and you must have an activated version of MS Reader. If you bought the Adobe version you must have Adobe Digital Editions. If you bought the MobiPocket version you need to register the MobiPocket PID for a computer/device.

As you say, this may be more hassle than the ebook is worth if you don't normally deal with DRM-ridden ebooks.

I have an activated version of MS reader. Darn thing. But hey one book won't make a diff, I'll read something else.

Sounds like a problem with the .lit version of the ebook as the PDF version works fine on my Sony Reader.

I downloaded the LIT version of Emissaries from the Dead. I got an error when buying the ebook (not surprising, since I was running FireFox), but it showed up in "my library" at HaperCollins and I was able to download it using Internet Explorer.

They are available for 2 months each and after that time its "show me the money" if you want them
I missed the first 3 as I didn't have my Sony reader then. Does anyone remember what the first 3 were ?
They are a bit of a curse because I liked City of Pearl by Karen Traviss (freebie no4) and now I am going to have to buy the rest of the series to continue the story

I seem to have missed one of them (#5, it looks like). The first three were (in no particular order):
Sara Douglass-Serpent Bride,
Raymond Feist-Flight of the Nighthawks,
Robin Hobb-Shaman's Crossing
