They partner with a ton of great publishers like Pegasus, Mysterious Press, and Akashic Books, among many others, and they always have great titles to choose from (classics, mystery, SF….) So, I’ve curated a few ebook titles here that might spark your imagination, and the best part is they’re all under $5 (many are under $2). How can you beat that?

Those Who Wish Me Dead by Michael Koryta (Little, Brown, June 2014)-I’m not new to Koryta’s work, and really enjoyed The Prophet, so I had high expectations for this one. Since I read it in one afternoon, it’s pretty safe to say they were met. I’m a sucker for survival stories, and this is one, but it’s also a thriller that pretty much starts with a bang and doesn’t stop … Continue reading

Tomorrow and Tomorrow takes place 10 years after a blast that decimated Pittsburgh, and just about everywhere you go, there are memorials of … Continue reading
