What a great find. This is going to be a great source for free books from a large publisher.
I've read 3 out of the initial 5 freebies. I read His Majesty's Dragon late last year and liked it a lot but haven't got round to reading further books in the series yet.
I enjoyed Red Mars and the rest of the series in the 90's so it might be time to re-read them as well as the Assassin series which I read a few years ago.

Even better to get the Sony format versions rather than put up with the pdf versions I have already downloaded

I didn't find this one on the Sony site - I searched by title and author. Not there!

Settling Accounts: Return Engagement by Harry Turtledove


The other four books I found for $0.00 = thanks for the heads up!

This same set is free at Amazon, for the Kindle, also. I'll post actual links when I re-find them.

Random House (or Amazon) pulled a quick switch on this last free book for the Kindle - perhaps they did the same for Sony? Rather than Settling Accounts Return Engagement: Book One of the Settling Accounts Trilogy, they have Settling Accounts In at the Death as a free download.

Just a heads up...

Outcast by Aaron Allston, the first book in the Fate of the Jedi series has been added to the free library page. Nothing at Amazon or Sony yet.


On a side note for any fans of Aaron Allston, Suvudu also had this news...
Quote:
Yesterday, Del Rey author Aaron Allston underwent quadruple bypass surgery. Aaron was on tour, promoting his latest book Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Outcast when he suffered a heartattack and was admitted to a hospital in Texas. He is currently in intensive care, but stable. Our thoughts are with him.

Aaron’s family has set up a blood donation sponsorship. If anyone in the Dallas area would like to donate blood, you can go to the National Blood Exchange or Carter BloodCare. Say that you are donating blood for Aaron Allston, patient of Carter Blood Care in Bedford, TX, and give his sponsor number: SPON 047786.

Please send any well-wishes to:

Aaron Allston
c/o Del Rey Books
1745 Broadway
New York, NY 10019

But please DO NOT send any perishable items or flowers, as Aaron will not be able to receive anything this week.

Ouch. Thanks for the news. I hope he recovers.

FYI, the Star Wars book is not the whole thing; it's just some background material and a sample chapter.

Oops, my bad. I thought it was the book, but it's not. It's a promo for the book.
