Iain M. Banks - Use of Weapons - STILL less than $1 at Fictionwise

I just noticed that Use of Weapons is still set to the $1 promotional price from February at Fictionwise. AND we have a 30% rebate for Sci-Fi going. AND we have a 20% off Mother's Day coupon (MOMSDAY) to use.

https://www.fictionwise.com/eBooks/eBook78406.htm

Unfortunately, it isn't available in MobiPocket any more, so eReader ONLY.

For FW members, that makes it:

$0.68 - ($0.20 Rebate) - ($0.03 eReader Rebate) = $0.45

If you haven't gotten it, get it while the getting is good!


[Edit: Oops, got title wrong, could a mod please fix the spelling on "Iain M. Banks"? Thanks]

Reminder: The Mother's Day 20% coupon is for Romance books, a great opportunity for Romance readers.

Note: Their ad for the 20% off takes one to the page with 15 FREE Romance books.

IMHO "Use of Weapons" is by far the best of his Science Fiction novels. At that price it's a steal!

It is unfortunately only available to the approximately 5% of the world's population who happen to be located in a 'geographically correct' location.

That may be the intention, but I got 20% off my entire order (and I don't think I had one romance book in the bunch).

That aint necessarily so. You might like to check whether Fictionwise cares whether the information in the country of origin field of your profile is correct.

If that's the case, then that's great news for me personally because I could care less about reading Romances. Thanks for that information; I'll go over and buy something.

The Sony works with secure PDF's, which would be Secure Adobe. The others would need the DRM removed and to be converted.

So am I correct in assuming that Converlit.com's app will allow me to remove the DRM?

Cause Calibre doesn't let me convert anything that is DRMed.
