For a bit of fun I sought out 4 Locus nominated titles below £4.00. I based the choices on books that F-F members have told me that they've enjoyed. It was pretty hard as most books seemed to be £4.29, lol - but I managed it ;)

Emperor of Thorns has dropped big time in price for the kindle. 3.49 now. And you can get the first two for about 6 pounds as a bundle.

Assassin's Apprentice is only 99 cents for the Kindle version in the US right now. Anyone that hasn't read Hobb yet should really check this out. Absolutely love all of the books I have read by Hobb so far.

I just picked up a (UK)kindle copy of The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon for 51p!!

There's been a lot of hype around this book and I've seen some very mixed reviews, but for that price it's definitely worth giving it a go.

You can pick Melanie Rawn books on amazon.co.uk quite cheap, particularly her Dragon Prince trilogy (highly recommended) which is available for £0.01 (they are used copies though) a real bargain for a great fantasy trilogy

Kameron Hurley has a promotion with Barnes and Noble. If you go buy a physical copy of Mirror Empire, then scan/take a picture of the receipt, email it, you'll get a digital Advance Reader Copy  of the second book Empire Ascendant two months before release.  I already opened a discussion that I think you should read this :)
