Thumbs up Free (DRM-free) Beyond the Doors of Death by Robert Silverberg [Award-Win Sci-Fi]

Beyond the Doors of Death by Science Fiction Hall of Fame inductee and SFWA Grand Master Robert Silverberg (ISFDB, Wikipedia, Science Fiction Encyclopedia) & Australian author Damien Broderick (ISFDB, Wikipedia, Science Fiction Encyclopedia), is a mini-compilation in Silverberg's Born with the Dead science fiction novella setting which explored the potential of the revived dead altering in their new lives as they revisit their memories, this reprint pairing the original with a new follow-up novella which further explores the concept, free courtesy of publisher Phoenix Pick Press.

This is their featured Free Book of the Month selection for August, and was also previously offered free in 2014. The original novella (Wikipedia), which appeared in the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction in 1974, is a double Nebula and Locus Award winner, and there's also a new introductory essay written by Silverberg.

Currently free throughout the month of August directly @ the publisher's dedicated promo page (DRM-free ePub/Mobi bundle available worldwide; reset the suggested price in the cart to $0.00)

There's also a tie-in offer for three of Silverberg's backlist novels, for just $6. IIRC, this bundle deal has been offered before the last time there was a Silverberg-related freebie, so you might already have it.

And this has been the (late!) selected 3rd (non-repeat…ish) free ebook thread of the day.

Because sfnal freebies are always welcome, even when it's for another round of freebieization for award-winning works, which Phoenix Pick has really been quite generous about sharing with us for all these years, especially for the benefit of newer Gentle Readers who might not have been around to pick it up the last time.

Enjoy!

Description
“Born With the Dead” (the novella) was nominated for every major science fiction award when it was originally published in 1974, winning the Nebula and Locus awards.

The story describes a future in which the dead can be "re-kindled" back to a new form of life. While they remember their pasts thought, their personalities are subtly shifted and the ordinary concerns and feelings of their original life no longer concern them.

The author now revisits the classic story with Australian author Damien Broderick. Broderick uses Robert Silverberg’s original novella as a starting point for a brilliant leap into the far future, widening the scope and tenor of the original story by revisiting some of its subtler implications.

Just a reminder that this will probably be the last day to pick up the freebie or purchase the tie-in bundle if you haven't already.
