    I received a reply stating that only "qualifying customers" could access the sales pages. I suppose because I bought The Shining from them that makes me a qualifying customer because I was never a member and the membership is not in use any longer. At the sign in page there is an activation option under the username and password field. I filled that out and activated my online account. Now I can sign in and see the sales.

    EDIT: I just signed out but the "The New Year Sale Continues" banner/button is still at the top of the page which takes me to the sales pages. So confused

    Maybe if you create an account with them and then try the link? .
    Doesn't look to be a way to create an account without being an existing customer (and I don't believe I've ever placed an order direct w/ them). Too bad...ah well, one of these days I'll get my hands on LORD OF THE FLIES...though I have seen copies a bit cheaper on eBay from time to time, so I'll just be patient.

    If you try their main site and wait for the sale banner to flash by maybe that'll work:

    *EDIT - Nope, I just tried it from a different browser that's also not signed in and I couldn't get it to work. Maybe if you create an account with them and then try the link? Really sorry it's not working and for the hassle. If it works you'll see a banner that says 'biggest ever new year sale' alternating with 4 other promotions.

    In addition to all the Ray Garton books, I got these:

    After Silence - Jonathan Carroll
    Incubus - Ann Arensberg
    The Other End - John Shirley
    Wetbones - John Shirley
    Plastic Jesus - Poppy Z. Brite
    Sins of Omission - Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
    I second John Shirley's The Other End. Great story!

    Most of these aren't free, but are discounted, so it helped me to sort by genre then by 'lowest price first.' That left a few pages for each genre I was interested in to wade through. That's not the greatest solution, but helped me narrow it down.

    In addition to the earlier Ellison's, picked up Carroll, Leiber, Garton, Shirley and a Howard Fast.

    There's a bunch of Ray Garton's older books in there, as well as some Fritz Leiber and John Shirley.

    Edit: Wow, this is a truly massive sale. I really recommend going to Open Road's website and checking out their list of authors, because they publish like 2000+ people. Brian Aldiss, for example, doesn't show up anywhere in that link I just posted, but a ton of his books are up for free.
    Great find. They have some interesting titles available.

    A tip: a number of Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's books are up for free, but you'll need to search for Chelsea Q Yarbro.
