For those who are latecomers, Tor released a bunch of really high-quality books (science fiction and fantasy) in various e-book formats as a free promotion ramping up to the launch of their new website tor.com. The Google group Kindleholics Anonymous has archived those releases here:

http://groups.google.com/group/kindleaholics-anonymous/files?hl=en

Please ignore anything that isn't .PRC format. They recently got spammed with purveyors of porn, and, by all appearances, the group has been abandoned. Now's the time to snap them up before it gets seedier over there. Or, if seedy is your thing, then you may enjoy it.

Do become a member of the Tor site. It's free, and, of late, they've been giving away at least one e-book each month.

Wow! Thanks! Any recommendations? There are quite a few books over there. I guess I could just download them all, but if anyone has a recommendation let me know.

I read Soul by Tobsha Learner and thought it was pretty good. I was a little disappointed in the ending. It was sort of like the author ran out of steam.

My friend read In the Garden of Iden by Kage Baker and liked it alot. It's on my list. I think you can look it up on Amazon and see a synopsis.

My daughter read Four and Twenty Blackbirds by Cherie Priest and liked it. I have no idea what it's about, though! Same thing, though -- look it up on Amazon. That's where I downloaded it from originally.

Thanks for the recommendations. I went ahead and downloaded everything, anyway. I just can't resist a free book!

But at least I have some recommendations on where to START when I do get around to reading these.

Does anyone know if anyone is still involved in this group? I was hoping to download all these old books I missed but you need to apply for membership and if there isn't anyone left I won't bother.

I just signed up and got approved within minutes. As far as I can tell, the books are organized in a separate files section, which makes it really easy to download them.

These are the books available in the files section of that google group. Not sure if there are more available in individual posts there.

Apologies for the formatting of my copy/paste attempt, but it's the best I could do.

Thanks!

If you are a scifi (SYFy?!) fan, "Old Man's War" by John Scalzi is a great read.
