Helen Wecker's excellent The Golem and the Jinni is 1.99$ on Amazon.

Dan Simmons' Carrion Comfort is 2.99$ on Amazon.

Finally, Paul Tremblay's A Head Full of Ghosts is also 1.99$ on Amazon

Not sure if those prices are matched by other online platforms. And yes, sadly, it appears that these discounts are only available on this side of the Atlantic. Maybe someone could confirm?

 

Becky Chambers' The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is also included in this lot of books.  Nook and Kobo also.  Although, Kobo users don't seem to like it nearly as much as Kindle and Nook users :lol:

One of this year's SF novels I enjoyed a lot "Ninefox Gambit" by Yoon Ha Lee is currently on sale for around $0.99 http://www.solarisbooks.com/post/1697 This price does not show up (yet?) for me in all stores.

It is part of an advent sale by Solaris/Rebellion Publishing that might have some more interesting offers in the next week.

I actually purchased that yesterday for $5.38... just got off a chat with Amazon, and they couldn't price adjust it, but they were able to cancel the order and refund it.  So I've repurchased it at $0.99.  Thanks!
