It’s a busy day for sales here in Scalzi Land, so let’s dig right into it:
Today (April 1, 2020) only — and not an April Fool’s joke — You can download the ebook of The Collapsing Empire for free as part of the Tor.com eBook club. This is for US and Canada only.
Also in US/Canada,
for the next couple of days also today only, The Consuming Fire, the sequel to The Collapsing Empire, is $2.99 at your favorite online retailer. So if you missed out on this book, now is a fine time to get it.
If you’re in the UK, you can get The Human Division, the fifth book in the OMW series (and the start of an independent two-book arc in that series), for just 99p, which is a pretty good price if you ask me.
Oh, and remember, The Last Emperox comes out in less than two weeks, so now is a very fine time to pre-order it! Also if you pre-order through Jay and Mary’s, my local bookseller, I’ll sign and personalize your copy (US delivery only).
There, we’re all caught up now. Happy April!
I preordered The Last Emperox today and I am pumped for its arrival to help get me through the lockdown. Let me know if there are any deals planned for those of us here on the other side of the world (Australia).
Someone needs to figure out a way to sign audio book copies.
Hey John, is there a way to get signed copies in the UK? My brother and I are huge fans of the series.
Yay for The Consuming Fire sale – it seems that usually these ebook discounts only apply to the first book in a given series, so it’s very nice to be able to continue the story at such a great price. Thanks for this, I can’t wait to read it.
Also saw the audio book of Consuming Fire – read by Wil Wheaton – is on sale for $7.49 on Amazon. Don’t know if that’s also a one day thing.
The first two books for under three bucks and, you know, here, now, not locked up in the library. I have no idea how I’m going to pay next month’s bills, but $3 isn’t going to pay the mortgage any of the rest of them, so why not? I can’t justify buying The Last Emperox, with only one of us currently employed. But tell Tor thanks and maybe later. ..
Thanks for the heads up! I got the two available here. Luckily I already have The Human Division. For those of you not familiar with it, the Tor ebook club gives away books fairly often.
It’s still April 1st here in CA, but apparently tor.com operates on Eastern time for their giveaways. Oh, well. Not a big deal – I borrowed The Collapsing Empire from my local library back when those were a thing, and thought it might be cool to have my own e-copy to reread after getting The Last Emperox.
I’m going to try to order the latter through my local bookstore to support it in these trying times – the owner says she thinks she can have it shipped to me direct from the warehouse, but we’re both waiting until we get closer in to the date to see what restrictions might be in effect at that time. Looking forward to a good read!
You’re not the only one that got tripped up by that Eastern, not Pacific, problem. Ah well, I’ve read it before too and was just looking to acquire a permanent copy for myself. I’ll live.
