    I ordered four books. Well three and a chapbook.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    It seems a little too good to be true, and it's possible someone's going to end up getting sued, but I just picked up the following Harlan Ellison e-books from Amazon for my Kindle:

    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.

    My understanding is that when Amazon does these promotions they still pay the artist full compensation.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    If you haven't read Rex Miller's books, get them.

    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
