7 Comments on 58 SF/F/H Kindle eBook Deals Under $5

  1. Hey John,
    Would it be possible to also let people know that these posts apply for the Nook and other ebook stores too? Due to the Agency Model, any ebook sale on Amazon must be transferred to all the other stores. So if it’s $1 on Amazon, it’s $1 on the Nook, etc. etc. etc. I just thought you might mention that to folks who come here in case they don’t have Kindles and don’t realize that ebook sales are universal (unless the book is only sold on Kindle, of course).


    • I did in the intro: “If Amazon is not your eBook ecosystem, please do look up the titles wherever you buy your eBooks; discounts are often applied at other outlets.”

      • Ah. Apparently I can’t read 😛

        • You just went right to the bling! 😉

          Also, others here (and in person) are telling me that some of these prices have already gone up…so Buyer Beware! Always check the price before you purchase.

          I wish there was a published schedule for these price drops…

    As noted, always double-check prices. The Chiang and McHugh books are showing on Amazon as $7.69.

    (It would be nice if a limited-time offer specified the time-limits of the offer. Sometimes, when cash flow is more of a trickle, I’ll put books, even cheap ones, on my wish list rather than buying right away. If I knew an offer was for only a day or a week, I’d be more likely to bite the wallet and purchase it anyway.)

  3. I would add Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue (The Bern Saga Book 1) by the Wool phenom Hugh Howey for $2.99.
    Also, just go here and check the Top 100 Free and the lists of Top-Rated Science Fiction, and other lists. I also have a lot show up for me because of my history of buying the bargains.

  4. Oops – that link broke, try this.
