The first one’s free, kid

As discovered on Friday’s Kindle Daily post, Random House is offering some free scifi Kindle love until May 31. Of particular note is the free availability of Kim Stanley Robinson’s Red Mars and Naomi Novik’s His Majesty’s Dragon. There’s also some T.A. Pratt and Harry Turtledove up for grabs.

As you might have guessed, the books on offer are first volumes of popular series. The first one’s free, as they say…

Gene Wolfe book club

Because I’m a glutton for punishment, and for grandiose resolutions, and for Gene Wolfe’s fiction

I’m going to try to read all 12 books in Wolfe’s Sun series this year. I already had written “read a bunch of Gene Wolfe” on my list for 2009, then ran across John Klima’s introductory post of The Gene Wolfe Book Club over at Tor this afternoon, and so here I go.

The Gene Wolfe Book Club.

I’d better start reading.
