The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson is only $1.26 at Amazon US right now. Not a bad deal for 1000 pages. Book 2 comes out in March.

Great price for Way of Kings! It's perhaps my favorite of Sanderson's books. Unfortunately, the second book in the series won't be released until March 2014 and the pre-order price is fairly steep at $14.99.

Today's F&SF Daily Deal is Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes" which includes the first eight issues of the Sandman graphic novel series, a total of 240 pages and priced at $2.99.

For those who aren't familiar with it or who've never read graphic novels, now's your chance to try one of the most famous, highly acclaimed graphic novel series ever produced. I just downloaded it with the Kindle for Android app on my Nook HD+. It's gorgeous and displays perfectly on the 9" HD screen.

I was looking into buy Robin Hobb's Farseer trilogy and noticed that her Soldier Son trilogy is available, as one ebook, for $12.99. Individually the 3 books are over $6 each.
I know nothing about the trilogy as I haven't read any Hobb yet but there it is. Amazon US.

Nice. I've taken the basic bundle for $2.99. I already own Citizen of the Galaxy or I'd have been very tempted by the expanded bundle. I also already own Climbing Olympus (bought in 2004, not read yet!), but $0.60 per book is still very good for those authors.

Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison

Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison is $.99 until midnight PST, then the price goes to &1.99.

Part of Amazon Kindle Countdown Deals .

Spoiler:
Quote:
Movie lovers might recognize Make Room! Make Room! as the basis for the 1973 film Soylent Green, which starred Charlton Heston. While Soylent Green has become a cult classic, fans of the novel have taken issue with its interpretation of what Harrison was really trying to say. Concerned about audiences losing interest, the creators of the film made cannibalism and not overpopulation (as it is in the book) the thematic focus of the story. As a result, fans of the movie and critics alike may want to visit the story in its original unbowdlerized form.

Make Room! Make Room! is set in the year 1999 and the world has become a grim and terribly overpopulated place, bleak and foreboding. This sets the premise for Harrison's novel, and fans of his earlier more comic works may be surprised at the seriousness of this novel. Although Harrison's fears did not become a reality for the inhabitants of New York or the rest of the United States, the novel remains nonetheless a gripping, thought-provoking work about privacy, deprivation, and desperation.

A teeming New York City and a detective's pursuit of a killer and nefarious racketeer comprise this novel. While the novel contains elements of classic detective fiction--the hard-boiled protagonist, the seductive mistress, the portraits of corruption and perfidy--Harrison's true concern is less the story itself and more the opportunity the story offers to give the reader a glance at a dismal and broken world. The state of overpopulation has altered life in innumerable ways, and Harrison is keenly interested in documenting the catastrophic effects of this burden on all human relationships.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Harry Harrison has published over forty novels in the course of his writing career, including the West of Eden trilogy, the popular Stainless Steel Rat series, Make Room! Make Room!, and the graphic novel Death World. His novels have been translated into over twenty-five languages. In 1973, Harrison was honored with the Nebula Award for science fiction and fantasy. He lives in Ireland.

SERIES DESCRIPTIONS

From classic book to classic film, RosettaBooks has gathered some of most memorable books into film available. The selection is broad ranging and far reaching, with books from classic genre to cult classic to science fiction and horror and a blend of the two creating whole new genres like Richard Matheson's The Shrinking Man. Classic works from Vonnegut, one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, meet with E.M. Forster's A Passage to India. Whether the work is centered in the here and now, in the past, or in some distant and almost unimaginable future, each work is lasting and memorable and award-winning.

I enjoyed that trilogy. Some interesting ethnic stuff in there.

Thanks for posting that -- it was still available today for that incredible price. What a deal!

I would be all over that if I didn't already have it. As it stands, I'm waiting for his new book to come out next month (When It's a Jar, Dec. 17).
