Only One Week Left: Space Operas for $2.99!

If you feel a void in your reading it’s probably because you haven’t read a space opera story lately! Tor Books is pleased to announce a special ebook promotion for three select space opera titles. All the books are also the first in their respective series and $2.99 in the US for only one more week!

Sun of Suns by Karl Schroeder (First in the Virga series)

The world known as Virga is a fullerene balloon three thousand kilometers in diameter, filled with air, water, and aimlessly floating chunks of rock. Enter Hayden Griffin, a man bent on avenging the murder of his parents...

The January Dancer by Michael Flynn

Full of rich echoes of the space opera classics from Doc Smith to Cordwainer Smith, it tells the fateful story of an ancient pre-human artifact of great power, and the people who found it.

The Price of Stars by Debra Doyle and James MacDonald (First in the Mageworlds series)

The war with the Mageworlds is over.  Now it’s time for the real struggle to begin. Freebooter at heart, spacer by trade, Beka pilots spacecraft—as far from her famous family as possible, thanks very much.

I love me some great-looking new books to add to my Kindle collection that aren't going to cost a ton. Thanks!

I've only read Sun of Suns, but I highly recommend it. It is, if you can believe it, a pretty Hard SF Space Opera, even though that sounds like a mess of contradictions.

I can't recommend The January Dancer highly enough. Great space opera adventure story, which not only stands alone by itself, but kicks off a great series of books.

Still only available in just one country in the world. Not sure why I bother with this website sometimes.

Sun of Suns is a must read! it has pirate treasure, swashuckling, posthumans, rocket bikes, steampunk airships - basically everything that's cool is in there - and they all somehow fit together so well. It's all the fun of old-fashioned space opera plus the believability and ideas of hard science fiction.
