I didn't believe that those fantasy/science fiction titles could be so heavily discounted for such a prolonged period of time. But other than Joe Abercrombie's The Blade Itself, which apparently sold out (at 50% off, is it any wonder?), all those SFF novels are still on sale, which means that you can save between 40% and 50% if you buy them now!
I don't know if they're trying to get rid of some overstock, but amazon.co.uk are really trying to "encourage" people to order from them! As I mentioned last week, both Scott Lynch's The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies are part of that deal. The same thing goes for Abercrombie's Before They Are Hanged and Alan Campbell's Scar Night. Ditto for Erikson's Reaper's Gale, Esslemont's Night of Knives, Miéville's Un Lun Dun, and Morgan's Black Man.
By browsing around for a few minutes this evening, I noticed that Alastair Reynolds' The Prefect is 42% off. Neil Asher's Hilldiggers is 40% off. Brian Ruckley's Winterbirth, one of 2006 best debut, is 40% off. Heck, you can even pre-order Peter F. Hamilton's The Dreaming Void with 37% off.
And they have interesting discounts on older books by George R. R. Martin, etc, paperbacks included!
Here's to hoping that both amazon.com and amazon.ca will feel like doing the same!:-)
