    I doubt I'll get through even one of them in that time. I'm working on Weber/Ringo right now, plus I also downloaded some Drake as well as Weber/Evans, Ringo (by himself) and Weber (by himself).

    From Phoenix Pick:

    Our free ebook of the month is Terence Green’s Blue Limbo. The coupon code for December is 9991437 and will be good from December 2 through December 31. Download link, as usual at http://www.PPickings.com

    Short Description of the Book:

    Mitch Helwig is a cop on the edge, “a man who’s gone through the valley of the shadow and hasn’t quite made it out the other side” (Toronto Globe & Mail). Vengeance and heroism, the subtleties of family woven into the metaphysics of life and death, all come together here in a page-turner, “a near-future tech-noir thriller” (SF Site) that moves at breakneck speed.

    "A chilling picture of Toronto in the not too distant future."—The Toronto Star

    “He writes with a real and rare sympathy for his characters.”—The Atlanta Constitution

    “A deft storyteller.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    “A wonderfully evocative writer.”— The Ottawa Citizen

    “Solid entertainment, with more than a bit of heart.”—The Edmonton Journal

    I love these descriptions of supposed SCIENCE ficion books that give you no idea what science/technology is being futurized in the fiction.

    February's Phoenix Pick free book:

    Our free ebook for February is Stephen Leigh’s The Shape of Silence. Stephen is one of my favorite writers and his Dark Water’s Embrace is, in my opinion, one of the most under-rated books in SFdom. The Shape of Silence also deals with similar issues and is a book about first contact with a truly alien race.

    The book will be available from now through February 29th. This month’s code is 9991463 and the link for the free book is on our catalogue page at www.PPickings.com . Look for the link just below the cover image of the book.

    Bio of a Space Tyrant Vol. 1 by Piers Anthony is free. I dont recall if this series is any good. I enjoyed Anthony 25 years ago, but I dunno if its worth touching now.

    A Door into Summer by Heinlein is on sale for 2.99, and is probably the better pick up, even given the price differential!

    From Phoenix Pick:

    Our free ebook for March is Leigh Brackett’s The Big Jump. Coupon code is 9991393 and will be good from March 2 through March 31. Download link, as usual at http://www.PPickings.com .

    About the Author:
    Leigh Douglass Brackett (December 7, 1915 – March 18, 1978) was an American author, particularly of science fiction. She was also a screenwriter, known for her work on famous films such as The Big Sleep
    (1945), Rio Bravo (1959), The Long Goodbye (1973) and The Empire Strikes Back (1980).

    Her novel The Long Tomorrow is one of the original post-holocaust books and considered by many to be a classic work on the subject.

    About the Book (The Big Jump):

    What awaits us out in space?

    New star-drive engines promise to open up the galaxy to humankind. But the first ship to use the engines disappears and a sole survivor returns...alone and dying of some strange type of radiation.

    No one can figure out what has happened to the ship or the crew. Nor does anyone know what happens to a ship travelling using star-drive technology.
    Does some unknown horror await us out there?

    The only way to find out is to go out again. And Arch Comyn is determined to be the one to solve the mystery.

    But is he, and the rest of mankind, ready for whatever awaits us beyond The Big Jump?
