Very enjoyable; somewhat reminiscent of Jacqueline Carey's Agent of Hel trilogy.
That was enough to get me to spend two bucks. Liked that series...

Is Tor.com's eBook of the Month Club dead or is it just not updated due to the person in charge taking a New Year's vacation?
It's back

Bargain @ $2.99 CAD from HarperCollins in Canada as part of a Kobo Canada promotion until January 19th (I checked Kobo US, and it's $5.99 USD there):

SS-GB by master spy novelist Len Deighton (ISFDB, Wikipedia), his one and only vintage speculative fiction alternate history novel, written well before I was born, which is a murder mystery set in an England where the Nazis succeeded in their invasion and has a Wikipedia entry all its own.

This has been on my wishlist for years and I was very disappointed when the not-so-local library's old paperback copy seemed to have gone missing (or at least be consistently checked out whenever I visited), and now I can get it for less than the price of round-trip bus fare.

In February 1941 British Command surrendered to the Nazis. Churchill has been executed, the King is in the Tower and the SS are in Whitehall… For nine months Britain has been occupied - a blitzed, depressed and dingy country. However, it’s ‘business as usual’ at Scotland Yard run by the SS when Detective Inspector Archer is assigned to a routine murder case. Life must go on. But when SS Standartenfuhrer Huth arrives from Berlin with orders from the great Himmler himself to supervise the investigation, the resourceful Archer finds himself caught up in a high level, all action, espionage battle. This is a spy story quite different from any other. Only Deighton, with his flair for historical research and his narrative genius, could have written it.

This is an Amazon US deal on books that are available at other e-tailers, but at significantly higher prices. They appear to be independently or small-press published, but I've taken the plunge on the first three out of four novels (not counting the Christmas short) and have the other one on my wish list; I've put my money where my mouth is.

The first three Carrie Hatchett, Space Adventurer novels are US$0.99 each at Amazon, for an unknown period of time. I picked the first book up as a freebie back in August, so I'm guessing its 99-cent price is normal, but the middle two - like book four - are usually $3.99. The blurb for book one is:

Quote
The galaxy is in crisis, and Carrie Hatchett is the last person on Earth who should be fixing it.

Carrie is a low-achieving daydreamer. After providing a good home for her butt-ugly dog and psychotic cat, her biggest challenge in life is to avoid being fired, again.

But a strange green mist sucks her beneath her kitchen sink, and an unusual clerical error leads to an offer she foolishly doesn’t refuse.

The Transgalactic Council hire her to settle a conflict between the mechanical placktoids and the mysterious oootoon. Carrie must overcome her personal weaknesses and, for the first time in her life, succeed in her job, to uncover a threat to the entire galaxy.
This series looks like a lot of fun, and there are enough positive reviews to make me take the chance.

Trace of Magic by Diana Pharaoh Francis is currently on sale for $0.99.

I've read this and loved it. It's UF with magic users instead of paranormal creatures. According to the publisher it should be on sale until Jan 14 at all retailers.
