Sale pricing of lots of great titles

Okay, mostly I ignore promotion I see on social media, but this one seems worth passing along: 101 SFF ebooks for $5 or less, and I see many noteworthy older titles on the list.

Tea With the Black Dragon is on here — a lovely short novel by RA MacAvoy.

Adulthood Rites by Octavia E Butler, that one is stunning sociological SF and I deeply regret I will never be able to ask Butler if she deliberately designed a species with absolutely hardwired instinct and did that on purpose to contrast the oankali with humans. I’ll never know, but this series is still so impressive.

Lagoon by Nnedi Okorafor is one I have been thinking of checking out eventually. It’s a Saga title, I see, which I hadn’t known. Well, that explains why it’s at a very inviting $2.99 right now; I think that’s Saga’s price for all its ebooks for February.

The Awakened Kingdom is a novella by NK Jemisin; I didn’t know it existed. I’m happy to add that to my TBR pile.

The Curse of Chalion and the Paladin of Souls and one of the Sharing Knife books. Only one Sharing Knife novel? Looks that way. Well, I have all these in paper. If you happen to want an ecopy of one of these, though, this might be a good time to pick it up.

Same with CJ Cherryh, she has four or five titles on this list.

Wasn’t one of you recommending MCA Hogarth just the other day? I have one of hers on my TBR pile; there are three more on this list. Same with Helen Lowe, she has a couple on here.

Has anybody read anything by Kylie Chan? Those look interesting. Shoot, at $.99 I guess I’ll just pick up the first one and try it eventually.

Okay, that gives me three I picked up. And I may look back over the list. If you’d particularly recommend a title I didn’t mention, point it out in the comments, please.

    Thanks for the heads up! Btw, if someone hadn’t read any Cherryh, which book would you start with? As you noted, a few of hers are on the list.

  2. Rachel Neumeier

    Pride of Chanur!

    Or, wait, Cuckoo’s Egg.

    Or, no! Definitely Cyteen. But read till young Ari is born, don’t stop too soon. It starts slow.

    For fantasy, Fortress in the Eye of Time.

    MCA Hogarth is mixed. One of her books I loved: Spots the Space Marine, clearly an homage to Starship Troopers. Others I tried I couldn’t finish.

    Thanks, Pete! “Spots” is a kinda silly name, but I’d be interested in an homage to Starship Troopers.

    “Spots” makes sense in context. Thanks for the link–I added a number of these to my TBR list.
