Thank you!

BTW, once the reissues go up, I hope you'll be able to redownload them if you want. (Can't promise, as it's not in my control.) The text will be the same, give or take a few tweaks, but I'm hoping that the formatting will run truer to that of the paper books.

Thanks for doing this. I will read one as soon as I finish 'Slaughterhouse Five', which is giving me a headache...which the author may have intended...

Is Eternity's End a standalone book? I'd like to read a standalone book before delving into a series.

Again, thanks. The more authors that give away free samples and make their work available without DRM the better!

Jeffrey, thanks for making yet another of your books available for free. I enjoyed Neptune's Crossing -- enough so that I bought a paperback edition to send to a member of my book swapping group. I've started reading Strange Attractors, but have set it aside for a little while as I catch up with all the paper books I have due in my book swapping group. I tossed a little in the tip jar when I downloaded the Chaos Chronicles books and will be back after I've had a chance to read this book.

Best of both worlds for you (I hope). It's a standalone novel that also is part of a larger universe, the Star Rigger Universe.

As far as my work is concerned, the Chaos Chronicles are best read in sequence. Also, Dragons in the Stars stands alone, but comes before Dragon Rigger. And From a Changeling Star stands alone, but comes before Down the Stream of Stars.

Everything else you can pretty much read in any order.

I had finally, after two months, managed to reduce the number of unread books on my Kindle to 80 (not counting the individual books in various compilations). For most of those two months I would get the number down to around 85 and then it would bounce back up to around 95 due to free books from various sources and the newest WebScriptions from Baen.

I was so pleased and then... some 16 books from Baen (May WebScription plus several other 'had to haves'), a couple of freebies here and there, and then, yesterday, between your newest and Suvudu's Moorcock book, I'm now over 100. Arrrrgh!!!

I'll be burning the midnight oil trying to stay current.

But seriously

I actually have the same problem.

The only solution for you is to put those other books aside for now, and read mine first, heh-heh.

Thanks Jeffrey, I'm about to start reading Neptune Crossing, which I bought on Fictionwise. I'll most certainly give Eternity's End a try !

I hope you like them! But just for the record, in case anyone else goes looking, Neptune isn't on Fictionwise. Actually, it's only available free! Maybe you meant Webscriptions (Baen Free Library)?
