Audible sale: $5.95 / $4.16 -- ends today (9/2)

Posted on 2012-09-03 at 1:5 by Sam

It’s only today that I finally found the sale page, but I’d mentioned this somewhat “quiet” sale over on Facebook and Twitter. The long and short of it is that a whole big list of ACX (Audible’s Audiobook Creation Exchange) titles have been on sale for $5.95, with members still getting their discount which brings them down to $4.16. Among the full list of titles, this includes all the Neil Gaiman Presents titles,among some others below. I still don’t see a full and complete list of the $5.95 titles, but

Posted on 2012-04-19 at 20:29 by Sam’s Semi-Annual Half-Price Sale lists 1000+ titles, ending April 27 at Noon ET. Organized into the major categories, there’s helpfully a Sci-Fi and Fantasy listing, but it’s quite a doozy at 131 results. So! Here’s my usual rundown of the (too many, still) titles which caught my eye with a (somewhat) shorter list of PICKs:

Posted on 2012-03-07 at 3:18 by Sam

As the 200+ books are listed by section by author last name, though there’s an Editors’ Picks section as well, this doesn’t make it that easy for the sf/f listener to get a glance at all the titles. (Though what I generally do is check my wish list, sorted by price, to see what sorts up at $4.95.) So, here’s my glance-through (not every sf/f title, particularly in the urban fantasy and paranormal romance side of things you’ll want to check the listings for yourself) of’s latest “Win-Win” sale
