Free or Almost

Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed a lot of publishers giving away books or selling them for a very cheap price. And I know that others have posted on this before, bit It won’t hurt to post them again.

  • Suvudu, an SF/F portal for Random House, has a list of books for free. One of them is Blood Engines by T. A. Pratt a new author that you may not have read yet. I’m always a big advocate of trying new authors, but I understand that it’s difficult buy a new author without the gaurantee of knowing that you will love it. So this is a great opportunity to try him out being afraid you’ve wasted this month’s budget on an unknown author. He also has another book coming out if you like his work.
  • Baen Free Library has a lot of books from authors that I’ve read, and a ton that I haven’t. Authors include Bujold, Lackey, Turtledove, and Weber. It’s a huge treasure trove of books..
  • One Dollar Orbit is exactly what it sounds like. Orbit books is selling one novel a month for one dollar. This month’s book is Empress by Karen Miller. I’ve seen this book on the shelves, but I wasn’t sure about whether or not to pick it up. I mean, I’m a sucker for stories about slaves who end up being more than that. But lile vampire novels, there are lots of those that aren’t really good at all.
  • Tor.comis currently giving away Spiritwalk by Charles de Lint. It’s a promotion, so it won’t last long. Previous authors were Emma Bull and Will Shetterly. It’s a little difficult to find these books, so do a search for ‘free e-books’. The blog entries are tagged as such.

So try some out. You might find a new favorite author!
