It seems to me it's been a while since we've done a large in-print sale, and we find ourselves with a slight lull in shipping this week, so here you go. Until 10:00 am EST Tuesday morning, all in-print SubPress books are 50% off. (The only exception to this is Dan Simmons' The Fall of Hyperion). To take advantage, please fill your shopping cart, and check out. The discount will automatically be applied. Now, for a few rules. - Postage is not discounted; - Limit of one copy per title; - Other publishers' books and forthcoming titles are not discounted; - This special may not be applied to past orders; - This special may not be combined with any other specials or coupons. - That's it. Some of the books we're offering are down in single digit inventory territory, so please don't hesitate to get your order in.
Last year, I learned that there were only a handful of copies of the limited edition left and only a few dozen copies left of the trade edition of Speculative Horizons, an anthology compiled and edited by Yours Truly. Before the anthology is sold out, we want to give the book a bit more exposure, as we try to move those last remaining copies.
If you want to help raise funds for cancer research, or if you are just curious and wish to give the anthology a shot, it's now available at 50% off via the Subterranean Press website. Otherwise, once the sale is over, if you want to get it at a discount, it's also available on various Amazon sites: Canada, USA, Europe.
You can read an extract from C. S. Friedman's short story here, and one from Hal Duncan's short story here.
Here's the blurb:
Speculative fiction is wide in scope and styles, and Speculative Horizons showcases the talent and storytelling skills of five of the genre’s most imaginative voices:
In C. S. Friedman’s “Soul Mate,” it’s love at first sight for Josie at the arts and crafts festival when she meets the handsome Stephan Mayeaux. It all sounds too good to be true until her newfound boyfriend starts to act strangely and unexplained occurrences begin to take place around her.
In Tobias S. Buckell’s “The Eve of the Fall of Habesh,” contragnartii Jazim must carry out one final assignment before the armies of the Sea People lay waste to the city he loves.
L. E. Modesitt, Jr. returns to the universe of his bestselling Recluce saga in “The Stranger.” A young herder’s existence will be forever changed by the unexpected arrival of the black-clad man recounting tales of angels living on the summit of the Roof of the World.
In “Flint,” Brian Ruckley introduces us to a young and inexperienced shaman who must venture into the spirit world to discover the source of the sickness which afflicts his tribe before they are all wiped out.
Talk to any cop working for Homicide, Narcotics, or Vice, and they’ll tell you that they get the worst cases imaginable. But in Hal Duncan’s “The Death of a Love,” you realize that they have nothing on Erocide.
