More inexpensive ebook goodies!

For a limited time, you can get your hands on the digital edition of George R. R. Martin's Tuf Voyaging for only 2.99$ here.

Here's the blurb:

Long before A Game of Thrones became an international phenomenon, #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin had taken his loyal readers across the cosmos. Now back in print after almost ten years, Tuf Voyaging is the story of quirky and endearing Haviland Tuf, an unlikely hero just trying to do right by the galaxy, one planet at a time.

Haviland Tuf is an honest space-trader who likes cats. So how is it that, in competition with the worst villains the universe has to offer, he’s become the proud owner of a seedship, the last remnant of Earth’s legendary Ecological Engineering Corps? Never mind; just be thankful that the most powerful weapon in human space is in good hands—hands which now have the godlike ability to control the genetic material of thousands of outlandish creatures.

Armed with this unique equipment, Tuf is set to tackle the problems that human settlers have created in colonizing far-flung worlds: hosts of hostile monsters, a population hooked on procreation, a dictator who unleashes plagues to get his own way . . . and in every case, the only thing that stands between the colonists and disaster is Tuf’s ingenuity—and his reputation as a man of integrity in a universe of rogues.

You can also download Alien Contact, a science fiction anthology edited by Marty Halpern and featuring short fiction by renowned authors such as Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Orson Scott Card, and many more for only 1.99$ here.

Here's the blurb:


From War of the Worlds to Invasion of the Body Snatchers… From ET to Close Encounters of the Third Kind…creators of science fiction have always eagerly speculated on just how the story of alien contact would play out.

Editor Marty Halpern has gathered together some of the best stories of the last 30 years, by today’s most exciting genre writers, weaving a tapestry that covers a broad range of scenarios: from the insidious, to the violent, to the transcendent.

I corrected my blog post on the specially priced Alien Contact ebook obviously after you posted here. Unfortunately the Stephen King story is not included in the ebook as I was unable to obtain the ebook rights to the story. It's under 5,000 words so readers are still getting 25 stories and 165,000 words of the best fiction for $1.99.
