Hot Moon by Alan Smale is $0.99 at Amazon US.

I checked CAEZIK SF & Fantasy and they are a small, but legit publisher. (And one of the board members here gave it a positive blurb)
Arc Manor, whose imprints include CAEZIK SF & Fantasy, Galaxy's Edge magazine, and Phoenix Pick, has an offer out right now that if you buy the book (Hot Moon) at any of the $0.99 retailers in the next few days, and then leave a review at Amazon, they will refund your purchase price, or send you another one of their e-books. (They make it clear in their email that the offer is not predicated on what your review says.)

And of course, if, per @gbm's comment about Partners22, you buy it at Kobo, it will be even less than $0.99...

In any case, though, the relevant part of the email I received describing the offer is:

Quote:
By now you have probably all heard of Hot Moon from me. It got incredible reviews from all the trade reviewers (including Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and Foreword Magazine), and Larry Niven enjoyed the book so much, that he not only gave the book a great quote, he has asked for the sequel once its done (kid you not!).

Through December 4th ONLY the book is available for only 99 cents (regular $9.99) through most of our regular vendors, including Amazon, Kobo, BN.com and Apple (links on the Publisher's Pick site). BUT WAIT, readers on this mailing list can get it for free.

HOW TO GET IT FOR FREE: Buy the book at any of the sites linked on the Publisher's Pick site for 99 cents between December 1 and December 4, and then leave an AMAZON review (Goodreads as well would be appreciated, but not required). Then send an email to HotMoon@ArcManor.com with your receipt attached and a link to the review. We are asking for an honest review so your reimbursement is NOT contingent upon how favorable the review is.

You may be thinking that this is a lot of effort to get back 99 cents. So we will sweeten the deal. In your email to us you can request a reimbursement OR you can ask for an eBook copy of any of the following books:

Over the Wine Dark Sea by Harry Turtledove (please note that this is a historical fiction novel)
Emprise by Michael P. Kube McDowell
Midnight at the Well of Souls by Jack L. Chalker
Energized by Edward M. Lerner
The Reinvented Heart edited by Cat Rambo and Jennifer Brozek.

The process to get the free eBook is the same as for cash. Send us the purchase receipt for Hot Moon and link to your review, and then request your selected book instead of the 99 cent check.

Reimbursement requests must be received by December 31 (this includes requests for the free eBook in lieu of the cash reimbursement);
And the Publisher's Pick website they reference is: https://www.publisherspick.com/

These are the same folks that do a monthly deal, with one book for free, and then one or more additional titles by (usually) the same author for discounted prices. I think I've seen others mention them on this thread.

(And in that same email, they mentioned that this month's "freebie" is Power Challenges by Ben Bova - same link...)

I had an ARC of this already and enjoyed it - it's pretty hard science-y, but kind of a fun alternate history kind of thing. Since I worked as a young engineer on various space life support systems, it was a fun read.

In the twenty-fifth century, settlements are established on Mars and the inner planets, but the stars are still light-years away, just a twinkle in humanity’s eyes. Hyperspace is a myth—until it’s not. A young scientist devises a theory for an engine that propels a ship at faster-than-light speed—and suddenly the galaxy is there for the taking.

The Spear Cuts Through Water by Simon Jimenez is $3 on Amazon.com
Was on my wishlist.
Quote:
Two warriors shepherd an ancient god across a broken land to end the tyrannical reign of a royal family in this new epic fantasy from the author of The Vanished Birds.

The people suffer under the centuries-long rule of the Moon Throne. The royal family—the despotic emperor and his monstrous sons, the Three Terrors—hold the countryside in their choking grip. They bleed the land and oppress the citizens with the frightful powers they inherited from the god locked under their palace.

But that god cannot be contained forever.

With the aid of Jun, a guard broken by his guilt-stricken past, and Keema, an outcast fighting for his future, the god escapes from her royal captivity and flees from her own children, the triplet Terrors who would drag her back to her unholy prison. And so it is that she embarks with her young companions on a five-day pilgrimage in search of freedom—and a way to end the Moon Throne forever. The journey ahead will be more dangerous than any of them could have imagined.

Both a sweeping adventure story and an intimate exploration of identity, legacy, and belonging, The Spear Cuts Through Water is an ambitious and profound saga that will transport and transform you.

Now somebody needs to write "The Forge of Goo."

My paperback copy of Dune had foil lettering that got worn after use, so after a while, people thought I was reading "Dunf."

I can't speak for others, but I'd pay good money for something called, "The Forge of Goo."

I'm on it:

It was the kind of gooey day when chewing gum sticks to the bottom of your shoes. After a while, your shoes themselves start to stick to the sidewalk with a maddening persistence, like a former lover you can't get rid of. That kind of day.

I was headed for my office in LA when she bumped into me.

"Are you Bart Bartson, the private dick?"

"I've been called worse," I said.

She had the kind of body that would make a Pug blush.

etc.....etc...etc.

I remember from SF Conventions years ago, that authors who participated in the first couple of Thieves World anthologies said they got more royalties from a short story that they did for most of their novels.

Volumes 1-3 of Thieves World WERE on sale (in the UK), but now only Volume 4 is on sale.

A great price if one likes this sort of stuff.

Happy shopping!
