[Now gone] Free, one copy of the March Webscription

I'm about the buy the March 2009 webscription at webscription.net. This is a package of seven books from Baen Books, four new books and three back catalogue books.

When I buy them, I can give one free copy to anyone who hasn't already got a webscription.net account.

So, the first person to send me a private message with their email address gets a free copy of the February books. Remember - you must not already have an account at webscription.net.

For those unfamiliar with webscription.net, it's the web site Baen Books and other publishers use to sell their ebooks. Despite the name, webscription months involve a one-off payment. The 'scription' bit is because the books get released in parts during the months before publication, with the full books only becoming available a couple of weeks before the print books reach the shops.

(Half the text becomes available in the the third month before publication, three quarters in the second month before publication, and the full text in the month before publication, between the 15th and 20th of that month.)

So the March books will become fully available sometime in the next 11 days.

See
http://www.webscription.net/p-945-w2...scription.aspx
for details of March's books, which are:

Storm from the Shadows by David Weber
Belisarius II: Storm at Noontide by David Drake and Eric Flint
The Rolling Stones by Robert A. Heinlein
Bolos IV: The Last Stand by Keith Laumer
Duainfey by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
Better to Beg Forgiveness by Michael Z. Williamson
One Day on Mars by Travis S. Taylor

Another Free copy of March Webscription

Thanks Paul for your generosity.

Baen has also allowed me to send a freebie to another non webscriptions user. Any takers? I will send the code to the first person to send me a private message with their email address.
