Download a Free Ebook of John Scalzi’s The Collapsing Empire Before March 16, 2019!

Each month, the eBook Club gives away a free sci-fi/fantasy ebook to club subscribers.

We’re excited to announce that John Scalzi’s The Collapsing Empire, a dauntingly relevant story of the far-future, is the Ebook Club pick for March 2019!

Riding The Flow, the only way to travel faster-than-light, humanity spreads to innumerable other worlds. Earth is forgotten. A new empire arises, the Interdependency, based on the doctrine that no one human outpost can survive without the others. It’s a hedge against interstellar war—and, for the empire’s rulers, a system of control.

The Flow is eternal—but it’s not static. Just as a river changes course, The Flow changes as well. In rare cases, entire worlds have been cut off from the rest of humanity. When it’s discovered that the entire Flow is moving, possibly separating all human worlds from one another forever, three individuals—a scientist, a starship captain, and the emperox of the Interdependency—must race against time to discover what, if anything, can be salvaged from an interstellar empire on the brink of collapse.
