    It turns out the publisher, Open Road Media, is doing a big promotion and a whole lot of books are free.

    https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st_p...price-asc-rank

    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.

    Most likely what's happening here is that Amazon is price matching. You can't actually offer something for free on Amazon, but if you offer it for free on a different store as part of a promotion or something Amazon will price match it. I'm not 100% sure how that equates to actual sales numbers though.

    Love Ain't Nothing But Sex Misspelled
    Ellison Wonderland
    Gentleman Junkie
    The Deadly Streets
    Troublemakers
    Stalking the Nightmare
    Harlan Ellison's Watching
    From the Land of Fear
    Paingod: And Other Delusions
    Spider Kiss
    Partners in Wonder
    Approaching Oblivion
    Sleepless Nights in the Procrustean Bed
    An Edge in My Voice
    Children of the Streets
    The Other Glass Teat
    Memos from Purgatory
    Harlan Ellison's Movie
    The Harlan Ellison Hornbook


    Total cost? $0.00

    Many of these aren't considered among his major collections, but a bunch of them are. At the very least people should be interested in Ellison Wonderland, Love Ain't Nothing But Sex Misspelled, and Paingod: And Other Delusions as highlights from an extraordinary career in speculative fiction.

    Thanks for the heads up, I just grabbed all of these.

    Edit: And someone is definitely getting sued: Harlan doesn't give anything away.

    Tons of Deadite Press ebooks have been discounted to 0.99. If my memory serves this is a first for them.

    Search for your favorite author on amazon and see what's for sale. I picked up a ton of WJW, Keene, and Gonzalez.

    Black Friday crowds at B&N (at least in my part of KCMO) aren't too bad. Far worse is looking at the books that have been picked up, treated roughly, and then put back. Maybe they even have some holiday cold bugs in them, too!

    Bonus!

    Thanks for the heads up. Actually, I wouldn't mind having that signed Carol Burnett memoir about her wonderful TV show. Not sure if I want it enough to brave the Black Friday crowds, but we'll see.

    Barnes and Noble is having their Black Friday sale on signed editions. Here's this year's line up:

    http://www.barnesandnoble.com/h/blac...editions-books

    Last year I got a signed edition of The Elfstones of Shannara and American Gods: The 10th Anniversary Definitive Edition. But nothing really interests me this year.

    Yet.

    Bought three books; "The Heroes" by Joe Abercrombie s/n; and two by Robert Silverberg also s/n.
