Starting this morning and lasting until Thursday March 1 at 11 AM Eastern Time (US), is promoting a 2-for-1 sale. This is one of the “special shopping cart” mini-site sales, and there is a tab for both Fantasy and (separately!) for Sci-Fi titles, though some titles of sf interest lurk on the Fiction, Young Adult, and other tabs as well.
