Gollancz appear to be cutting prices on their ebook collections (mostly mysteries); if you search Amazon.co.uk for Gollancz collection, you'll come up with a lot:

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3733285&postcount=1842

The Dune collection was in the Christmas sale last year, so check you haven't already got it.

There's another Charlaine Harris collection - the Harper Connelly series: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Harper-Con...lbr_books_authors_browse-bin:Charlaine+Har...

Some of her crime series are also in the sale, and are of interest because they all seem to intersect in the Midnight Texas series.

Also spotted:

The Lyonesse Trilogy by Jack Vance for £3.99
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-Lyonesse-Suldruns-Garden-Gollancz-ebook/dp/B00...

10 titles in the Xeelee Sequence by Stephen Baxter for £3.99:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Xeelee-Sequence-Stephen-Baxter-ebook/dp/B01HBL2SI2/ref=...
(Note that the Destiny's Children series are a separate entry as well as included here.)

Time's Tapestry by Stephen Baxter at £3.99:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Times-Tapestry-Stephen-Baxter-ebook/dp/B01HBL2T1I/ref=s...

10 titles in the Psy-changling series by Nalini Singh for £3.99
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Psy-Changeling-eBook-Collection-ebook/dp/B005V2234S/ref...

The Confluence Trilogy by Paul McAuley for £3.99
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Confluence-Trilogy-Child-Ancients-Shrine-ebook/dp/B00FY...

The best way to look is to search Amazon for 'Gollancz collection' - about half the results are stand-alones, but the rest appear to include some rather good bargains.

Red Rising by Pierce Brown - $1.99
The Fireman by Joe Hill - $2.99
MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood - $1.99

I was tempted by the Atwood book, but decided against it.

The Cleanup by John Skipp and Craig Spector is on Amazon today for 99cents!

"After witnessing the monstrous murder of a young woman, Billy makes an otherworldly bargain — one that he doesn’t fully understand."

I don't often see Skipp & Spector books offered anywhere; they aren't easy to find. I've read this one and a few others - they are a bit gory but entertaining.

Yeah, it's refreshing, especially when there's something good: there's at least 2 print books going (although I may put the Tim Powers into store as it's the 1st edition ppbk), and 7 authors I'd actually read. Makes a change from StoryBundle - which usually features authors I've never heard of.

Storybundle used to have some known authors (I got the Haikasoru, Story Collections and VanderMeer bundles back in 2015/2016). Right now it's just indie authors. Some famous ones (Kevin J. Anderson comes to mind) but most unknown. And my reading time is precious, and I just.... don't take a chance on unknown writers. I need reviews, awards, recommendations.

Humble Bundle on the other hand is my number one acquisition source :D

Yeah, I've grabbed like two StoryBundles ever. (The Apex World SF and Haikasoru ones.) The indie author thing just does not appeal to me anymore. Plus StoryBundle is $5 for 4 books, whereas Humble Bundle you can usually get 6-10 books for $1. (Or double that for $8 as opposed to SB's $15.)

152Maddz
Nov 21, 2018, 5:46pm Top

>150 saltmanz: I've had 7 StoryBundles when there's been sufficient I want that makes getting the rest of the bundle a trivial add-on - which generally means at least 3 or 4 books. If there's only 1 or 2 books that catch my eye, I don't bother - it's usually cheaper to pay full-price at Amazon. I've had 11 book bundles from HumbleBundle (12 if you include the White Wolf RPG bundle).

Of course, that is by far out-weighed by the 38 Bundles of Holding I've acquired over the years (plus 4 resurrections)...

The U.S. Amazon site has a lot of Tolkien books on today’s daily Kindle deal. It looks like they’re all $2.99 each to purchase. This includes the well-known works like The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, but there’s a lot of other stuff too.

They’re selling the “One Volume” omnibus version of The Lord of the Rings for $2.99 and the individual books in the trilogy for $2.99 each, so it would probably make more sense to buy the omnibus for $3 than the individual books for $9. I know that’s obvious, but I wanted to mention it in case somebody didn’t even notice the omnibus was on the list.
