The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster is $1.99 at Amazon US.

This is a collection of three shorter books published separately originally, so $1.99 for all three is a good deal.

I'll admit that I read the first book, City of Glass, and I just didn't get it. I suspect these books are best served by reading in a group or college class. Or maybe I'm just not an expert reader

Quote:
Moving at the breathless pace of a thriller, this uniquely stylized triology of detective novels begins with City of Glass, in which Quinn, a mystery writer, receives an ominous phone call in the middle of the night. He’s drawn into the streets of New York, onto an elusive case that’s more puzzling and more deeply-layered than anything he might have written himself.

In Ghosts, Blue, a mentee of Brown, is hired by White to spy on Black from a window on Orange Street. Once Blue starts stalking Black, he finds his subject on a similar mission, as well.

In The Locked Room, Fanshawe has disappeared, leaving behind his wife and baby and nothing but a cache of novels, plays, and poems.

This Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition includes an introduction from author and professor Luc Sante, as well as a pulp novel-inspired cover from Art Spiegelman, Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic artist of Maus and In the Shadow of No Towers.

This is just an update. The entire Morland Dynasty (35 books) series by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles is discounted now at both Amazon and Kobo. The early books are .99 or $1.99, but all the rest are now discounted to $3.99 (which is huge, because this year is the first time they have discounted this series. The series is complete.

This is historical fiction that follows one family from its creation in the Middle Ages up to and including the market crash of 1929. The first book is a bit choppy, but hard to stop reading once you get into it. I don't know how long the discounting will last. This author also writes the popular Bill Slider detective series.

I put this kind of stuff into Alternate Reality as well. While it has a historical base, it's not really historical fiction (nor is it YA). Whether you want to add it as a subcategory of Science fiction (where time travel would fall) or fantasy is up to you. I just leave it separate as the only real science fictiony thing about it is the time travel.

The Friends of Pancho Villa by James Carlos Blake is $1.99 at Amazon US

Quote:
Violently waged from 1910 to 1920, the Mexican Revolution profoundly transformed Mexican government and culture. And Pancho Villa was its “incarnation and its eagle of a soul”—so says Rodolfo Fierro, the narrator of Blake’s astonishing novel, an ex-con, train robber, and Villa’s loyal friend. Killers of men and lovers of life, the revolutionaries fought for freedom, for a new Mexico, for Villa. And in return, they shared victory and death with their country’s most powerful hero—from “one of the greatest chroniclers of the mythical American outlaw life” (Entertainment Weekly).

When Marnie Was There by Joan G. Robinson is currently on off for £0.99 at Amazon UK.

This is the book that the Studio Ghibli film was based on.
