Whispersync Deal Roundup: Night Shade Books, the Baen Free Library, and The Shambling Guide to New York City

Posted on 2014-02-27 at 19:1 by Sam

Thursday, February 27, 2014: I didn't see a particular Kindle Daily Deal title to feature today, so I'll take the time to write up a few more "general" cases. First up, because I understand this to be a limited time offer (though my inquiries as to how long have not yet made it through the aether and spam filter and inbox queue yet, or, most likely, didn't look to be worth answering) is from Night Shade Books, which has put a pretty sizable crop of its titles on sale. (BUT WHERE IS MY JM McDERMOTT?

After six audiobooks in May (though KSR’s 2312 went on well into the first week of June) I listened to eight in June, with Tim Powers’s On Stranger Tides and Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay being the outstanding audiobooks, with plenty to recommend Mark L.

Van Name, Narrated by Tom Stechschulte for Audible Frontiers. Out concurrently with its print and e-book release from Baen, the book continues the Jon and Lobo series, which came to audio in one giant gulp last month. Jon and Lobo are back–and everything is about to change. If they both survive. Haunted by memories of children he could

Another jam-packed release week, led for me by Nick Harkaway’s Angelmaker and the first four books in Mark L. Van Name’s Jon and Lobo series.

ANGELMAKER: The second novel from Nick Harkaway, author of the Locus- and BSFA-nominated The Gone-Away WorldAngelmaker was published in hardcover by Knopf last week after a February print release in the UK.
