Cool Kindle Science Fiction MegaPacks VERY CHEAP!

I'm just getting ready for my 100th (maybe, I haven't really kept track) re-read of H.Beam Piper's "Four-Day Planet," turning at this time not to a well-worn paperback on a shelf somewhere but to my handy H.Beam Piper MegaPack kindle book, a compilation of 8 Piper novels and 25 short stories, which I scored from Amazon some time back for mere chump change, 59 cents!!! Of course I have already told my fellow Piper-addict Timerover51 about this treasure trove, but it occurs to me now that I ought to share the bounty with y'all, the rest of my CotI friends.

Even if you're not already a Piper fan, this is surely worth a look for 59 cents! You don't ned an actual Kindle device (I don't have one), just a free app on your phone, tablet, or computer. Piper's classic, "Space Viking," was an acknowledged influence on Marc Miller in the creation of Classic Traveller, and although that novel is also available for free from Project Gutenberg, I find my kindle MegaPack much handier.

Amazon also has these MegaPacks available for other SF authors from the Golden Age, all for either 59 or 99 cents. I know I have Piper, Andre Norton, Poul Anderson (some less popular works, but still nice), Fritz Lieber, Cyril Kornbluth... don't recall who else. Also some theme packs w short stories from multiple authors.

There, you are now informed. You know what to do. Or not. I'm off to enjoy the adventures of ace reporter Walter Boyd on Federation colony Fenris, home of gangster politicians and honest to goodness Sea Monsters.

Imperial Core Update: In other news, Emperor Strephon Aella Alkhalikoi is... still alive.
