  1. Tachyon Publishing offers a selection of books on Humble Bundle. The highest level seems to be a repeat of their last bundle (probably for people who missed that one). It offers works from writers such as Jane Yolen, Patricia A. McKillip, Peter Watts, Tim Powers and many others. https://www.humblebundle.com/books/supermassive-scifi-fantasy-horror-tachyon-books?hmb_source=&hmb_medium=product_tile&hmb_campaign=mosaic_section_1_layout_index_1_layout_type_threes_tile_index_3_c_supermassivescififantasyhorrortachyon_bookbundle
  2. Ohh, and a very nice comic bundle with a lot of the more well known works of Jodorowsky. https://www.humblebundle.com/books/incal-and-more-humanoids-books
  3. One of the bundle selling sites, fanatical, has a bundle with Black library stuff. No idea about the quality of the selection offered, but I've seem some of the horus heresy stuff in the highest tier before in Humble Bundles. https://www.fanatical.com/en/bundle/warhammer-fiction-bundle-from-black-library
  4. An ominubus of the Amberlough novels by Lara Elena Donnely is now on pre-order sale for $2.99 or even less in Europe. via
  5. The Women's War by Jenna Glass is on sale for 2 ish.
  6. Tor has discounted for this week Middlegame by Seanan McGuire Binti by Nnedi Okorafor Witchmark by C.L. Polk Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir to $2.99, the deal seems to also available in Europe for equivalent prices.
  7. Podcasts I recent-ish discovered, and don't remember if I mentioned here. Strong Songs enthusiastically analysing songs. Pratchat going on a random walk through Pratchett's works. Desert Island Discworld interview with a guest, and a bit on a single discworld novel they like.
  8. The sale seems to extend to continental Europe as well. Amazon netherlands even manages to get down the price to €0.49 (some weird automation hiccough I think)
  9. Queen of the Conquered by Kacen Callender is on sale for less that €2, seems to be worldwide
  10. As far as I can tell limited to the US/Canada: Debut novels published by TOR for $2.99 https://www.torforgeblog.com/2019-ebook-sale/ highlights seem to be: A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine Magic for Liars by Sarah Gailey But I might have missed the buzz about some of the other titles
  11. The Dreaming Stars by Tim Pratt and its sequels are £0.99 each today directly from the publisher. https://www.angryrobotbooks.com/books/sale/
  12. Some available from the Netherlands, so anyone's guess where else: Player of Games by Ian Banks is on sale for 0.99 Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky 0.99 Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers 0.99
  13. This is how you lose the time war by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone is currently on sale for €0.99 in Europe at least. and Terminal Alliance by Jim C. Hines is on sale for €2 + tax worldwide as far as I can tell.
  14. For a short few hours more, a bunch of Gollanncz published novels available for 1 or 2. For most works the sale seems to be on in Europe at least. https://www.amazon.co.uk/stores/page/8079AB76-273B-4CBB-AC4F-F212344911F0
  15. I am generally not a horror reader, but do love the works of T. Kingfisher (Ursula Vernon). The Twisted Ones is definitely worth checking out. A book in the supernatural-world-is-out-there style horror.
  16. Aurora Rising (Which was previously published as The Prefect) by Alastair Reynolds is on sale for 0.99 in European markets at least.
  17. Netherlands. (Stickies are the best camouflage)
  18. A collection of the Frank Herbert Dune novels published by Gateway is on sale for 1 ish at the moment. eg kindle
  19. Apparently one of the foundations of wuxia novels, and by the looks of it just now translated into English. A Hero Born by Jin Yong is on sale for 1.99. The first in either a series or a split novel (Legends of the Condor Heroes).
  20. It might be interesting for some, even though I do not know enough about the books to jump in yet. Storybundle has a set of genre-ish books by Lantinx authors curated by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. https://storybundle.com/latinx, as always pay-what-you want; $5 minimum for the basic offer, $15 minimum for the whole set.
  21. A podcast I've enjoyed recently is Chips with Everything, a technology podcast produced by the Guardian. And another in my habit of podcasts with people in-depth discussing tv-shows and films I haven't actually watched (recently) is Little Grey Cells, which is going through the David Suchet Poirot episodes in a chronological order.
  22. Oh, that seems interesting, thanks.
  23. The new Hardcore History was fine. But he definitely seems shaken by political developments in the US, and the constant comparisons between modern day experience and the past seems to have disappeared as a result. I have enjoyed the Farm to Taber podcast, exploring developments in food security and farming. As well as the Hammer House of Podcast, which explores the Hammer horror films one by one. Another nice relaxing joyful podcast has been Sheep Might Fly by Tansy Rayner Roberts, where she serializes new material as well as existing short stories.
  24. Thanks. It seems to be the pain of someone who could always be 'neutral' and 'in the centre', 'above things'. But no wonder he, as many others more partisan than that, has troubles finding the stability to create. I hope the system he is trying now will work for him.
  25. Actually this is the first time I've ever head of it. Seems worth checking out, thanks.
