7 Comments on 101 SF/F/H Kindle eBook Deals Under $4

  1. Among others, the list includes quite a few “Whispersync for Voice” titles, meaning a big discount on the Audible audiobook in conjunction with buying the Kindle edition. Chuck Wendig’s Under the Empyrean Sky, Christian Cantrell’s Kingmaker, C. Robert Cargill’s Dreams and Shadows, George R.R. Martin’s Wild Cards II, Max Gladstone’s Three Parts Dead, Scott Lynch’s The Lies of Locke Lamora, Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter’s The Long Earth, …

  2. And there goes another 10 bucks, thanks a lot De Nardo.

    No, really. Thanks.

    Great deals.

  3. Thanks for making the list, John! $1.99 for Promise of Blood is a great deal!

    I’d also recommend Odd Men Out by Matt Betts at $3.99. Nice mix of steam punk, alternate Civil War aftermath where zombies forced a different future.

    • Thanks for the addition! There’s no way my list can be comprehensive, so mentioning something I miss that may be of value to someone is much appreciated.

  4. FWIW, almost all of Greg Egan’s books are on sale for less than $3.99 right now, not just Permutation City:

    Similarly, a bunch of Brian Aldiss’ other books are on sale as well.

  5. And Amazon seems to have added a variation to the Daily Deal called the Big Deal. I picked up 3 Avram Davidson books for $0.99.!2334093011%2Cn%3A!2334155011%2Cn%3A6180870011%2Cn%3A154606011%2Cn%3A668010011&bbn=6180870011&ie=UTF8&qid=1381581472
