Around the 1st of each month (certainly later if there’s a holiday!) the Tor.com eBook Club gives away a free sci-fi/fantasy ebook to club subscribers.
We’re happy to announce that the pick for January 2017 is: OFF ARMAGEDDON REEF by David Weber, the first book in Weber’s “Safehold” space saga.
David Weber’s unique SAFEHOLD series combines medieval fantasy with spacefaring sci-fi to produce an epic that asks pointed questions:
How much do we allow ourselves to be limited by our own belief systems? How much do we need those belief systems in order to give us something to strive towards?
Hunted by the Gbaba, the human rulers of our refuge planet of Safehold have taken extraordinary measures to keep us hidden: using mind control technology to create a religion that keeps society medieval forever.
800 years pass. In a hidden chamber on Safehold, an android from the far human past awakens, determined to restore technological progress to humanity. The android takes a new gender—male—and adopts a new name: Merlin.
OFF ARMAGEDDON REEF is available for download from January 4th through January 11th
