USA & Canada: Free ebook each month from Tor.com

If you live in USA or Canada, Tor.com have a great offer starting up - a free ebook every month if you sign up to their mailing list.

See http://ebookclub.tor.com/ for full details.

The first book on offer is The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu.

[Update: The first month's offer is now over. But you can still sign up to their mailing list to get next month's free ebook, although we won't know what that is until next month]

Monkey only has one body! No Problem!

Thanks for the heads-up, pdurrant! I'm not clear on the specifics: will there be a free book each month? Or is only this initial book free?

Darn, just bought this a couple of months ago.

Oh well, hopefully indicative of quality for the future!

It sounds to me like a new free ebook every month.

Yes, I checked the confirmation email I received from Tor and it says "please note that all ebooks will only be available for free for a week". I hope, as sufue stated, that the quality of the free offer continues to be this high.

Thanks for the heads up.


Back when they did freebies before they gave away some really good books. Hopefully this time will be no different.

Cool! A bit like the University of Chicago's free books except U of C's books are usually PDF and require Digital Editions. Tor's offer is epub and is an open epub, a direct download. I hope these will be books I want to read.

Very cool. I already have the audiobook, but haven't 'read' it yet. Now I can read it both ways...

Thanks. I went for it, but I have to admit to being cynical enough to figure (since the "We reserve the right to cancel this promotion at any time" disclaimer was awfully prominent) that this will last a month or two at most until they figure they have the majority of e-mail addresses they're going to get. Hope they prove me wrong!

Before they launched Tor.com there was a large free ebook give-away.
