The Bargain Bookstore


The Quiet War Omnibus and The Vastening Omnibus by Paul McAuley for £3.99 each. and
Both of these contain two novels. All four novels are connected and usually considered part of a quartet. but there is no ongoing narrative between the two halves.
These are great; the Quiet War book will be more approachable as it is near future as politicking takes place in the outer solar system for resources. The second two follow the paths of some of the characters and plot elements far into the future. This is very good science fiction. There are also a number of short story collections that tie into this.

Paul McAuley is one of those authors who hasn't really got the recognition that he deserves. I'll happily buy his books sight unseen as I know that they will deliver.
Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt. 99p.
Horror(ish) story about an upstate New York town in the grip of a witch's curse.

Bird Box by Josh Malerman. 99p.
Haven't read this yet but made the shortlist for the Shirley Jackson Award and the shortlist for the Stoker First Novel. Supposed to be a dark post-apocalyptic thriller.

A Skinful of Shadows by Frances Hardinge. 99p.
Shortlisted for the Worldcon Special YA award (which hopefully will become a real Hugo when it grows up).
Story of the English Civil War and of ghosts and the people they inhabit.

Finally (and purely for completeness)
Hidden Empire by Kevin J. Anderson. 99p.
Actually all 7 books in that series "The Saga of Seven Suns" are 99p as are The Dark Between the Stars and Blood of the Cosmos
Wide-screen space-opera from an author I find almost unreadable and I wouldn't recommend it unless you already know you like his stuff.
Two Judge Dee shorts by Robert van Gulik are currently free courtesy of University of Chicago Press:

Someone was mentioning Chinese police procedurals in connection with not running a Monkey game. I can heartily recommend the Judge Dee series, and these would be a good way to dip into it.
