I got the email we’ve all been waiting for this morning. No, not that email! The other one. No, the other other email. Well, anyway, the Tor Book Club is back. For those of you who don’t know, the fine folks at Tor–who love us very much, and want us to be happy–have a book club which discusses Sci-Fi and Fantasy books, which they give away for free.
Now, admittedly, the free books tend to be the first book in a very long and very addictive series, but they are free. You just sign up for the newsletter. The books are only available free for two or three days.
This month’s selection is The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. Yup. The first book in the Wheel of Time series. (A series, by the way, which is so long the author literally died writing it, and so addictive they raised a boy-child from scratch to finish it.)
No, the business model is completely different than selling cocaine.
