I haven't been following closely but basically it was that anything published after 1/1/2023 may not be able to be downloaded to Kindle for PC except in KFX format (which excludes old versions) and therefore makes using the Tools more difficult.
Yes, that was exactly it. Thank you very much. According to the linked post, it's after 2023-01-03, which means books published on the 1st or 2nd of January might have snuck in, but this is kind of splitting hairs.

Vanishing Acts (posted earlier) is a new release, and affected by the KFX change.

Fallen Dragon by Peter F. Hamilton is $2.99 at Amazon US.

Quote:
From science fiction master Peter F. Hamilton comes a standalone novel that is “a fascinating, compulsively readable clash of hardware and ideals”, political intrigue, and space opera at its best (Kirkus Reviews (starred review)).

In the distant future, corporations have become sustainable communities with their own militaries, and corporate goals have essentially replaced political ideology. On a youthful, rebellious impulse, Lawrence joined the military of a corporation that he now recognizes to be ruthless and exploitative. His only hope for escape is to earn enough money to buy his place in a better corporation.

When his platoon is sent to a distant colony to quell a local resistance effort, it seems like a stroke of amazing fortune, and Lawrence plans to rob the colony of their fabled gemstone, the Fallen Dragon, to get the money he needs. However, he soon discovers that the Fallen Dragon is not a gemstone at all, but an alien life form that the local colonists have been protecting since it crashed in their area.

Now, Lawrence must decide if he will steal the alien to exploit the use of its inherent biotechnical processes — which far exceed anything humans are capable of — or if he will help the Resistance get the alien home.
