This Week’s Bargain SF & Fantasy Books at Amazon.com

Friday, September 14th, 2012 | Posted by John ONeill

swords-dark-magic-256I need a better system for tracking these discount books at Amazon. Way I do it now, I just add candidates to my cart whenever I find them. Which means my cart fills up pretty quick, and I have to keep emptying it.

Don’t tell me I should create a wishlist. I already have over a dozen wishlists. Compulsive people shouldn’t be allowed to use Amazon.

Anyway, what do we have in the bag for you this week? Swords & Dark Magic: The New Sword and Sorcery, the excellent anthology edited by Jonathan Strahan and Lou Anders, has been marked down from $15.99 to just $6.40; David Weber’s new standalone SF novel, Out of the Dark, is just $2.98 in hardcover; and Tanya Huff’s latest hardcover, The Truth of Valor, is just $2.54. All that, plus two novels by Charles de Lint, Spirits in the Wires and Spiritwalk, for roughly six bucks; three Hawkmoon novels by Michael Moorcock for six bucks or less: The Mad God’s Amulet, The Jewel in the Skull, and The Sword of the Dawn; The New Space Opera, volumes One and Two, edited by Gardner Dozois for under 7 bucks; Gene Wolfe’s latest novel, Home Fires, in hardcover for $10; and over a dozen more.

  1. Crux is excellent, or at least the version I read in whichever magazine it was originally printed in (F&SF I would guess, because he’s pretty much one of their “staff writers”).

  2. And I had “Swords and Dark Magic” on my Amazon wishlist (I’m far too lazy to have more than one), so that one has just been ordered.

  3. Glad you snatched SWORDS & DARK MAGIC while there were still copies left!

    As of this morning, there’s only one copy of CRUX left as well.
