Closed: Free SF/Fantasy October 2011 WebScription Gift Thread

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm going to buy the October 2011 Baen webscription package shortly. When I do, I'll be able to also give it as a gift to anyone who hasn't already registered at the webscription web site.

*** If you are already a webscription customer, this offer does not apply to you. ***
*** Please respect the intent of this generous offer from Baen. ***


The great thing about this offer is that the person who receives the gift can also gift the webscription to another person when they redeem their coupon.

The October webscription consists of seven complete multi-format, DRM-Free, ebooks of Science Fiction and/or Fantasy from Baen Books: (Note: Some are new releases, others are newly available in eBook format, and some are back-list to fill out the bundle. )

A Beautiful Friendship by David Weber
Carnelians by Catherine Asaro
Starman Jones by Robert A. Heinlein
Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold
Dead Six by Larry Correia and Mike Kupari
Bolos: Their Finest Hour by Keith Laumer
MYTH-Interpretations: The Worlds of Robert Asprin by Robert Asprin
(The list price for this WebScription is $18.00 USD. For the individual eBooks in it, $42. )

Note: All books are currently available for download in a variety of formats and are DRM-Free

INSTRUCTIONS
Post a comment in this thread, stating that you'd like to get this webscription package when you sign up at webscription.net. Do not sign up at webscription.net yet.

I will edit this message, adding people to the list below. Once you see your username on the list, send a private message with your email address (needed for the gift webscription process) to the person above you in the list.

This email address can not be one that has registered on WebScriptions before.

I will buy the webscription month and use the email address I've received for the gift webscription. That person will receive an email from the webscriptions website, giving them a code to redeem their gift.
Once they have the redeem code, they use the email addresss sent to them by the next person on the list when redeeming their gift.
And so on....

I'll try to keep track of things by editing this message and in private messages with participants. We can usually manage several gift months before things break down, usually through over-zealous spam filters.
(Hint: If you want to be part of this chain, watch your junk email. IME, the email from WebScriptions will end up there approximately 25% of the time, and 100% of the time if you use a G-Mail account. )

Short Instructions:
Add a comment/reply. Wait until your username appears on the list below. Send your email address to the person above you on the list.

Thanks and karma to pdurrant for the format of this offer. Much better than I could have done on my own.

And thanks to all who played and kept the thread going. May you enjoy your new books, and hopefully buy many more from the authors and publisher who make this possible. And start your own Webscription thread here when you make your next Webscription purchase.
