Tor.com’s eBook of the Month Club: The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi
The Collapsing Empire - John Scalzi

I haven't posted about the last few (and forgot to download them in time as well). I had thought this was one of their offerings in a previous month, but I don't see it in my records, so either I didn't download it or I'm remembering wrong.

 

Anyway, folks in the US and Canada have until 11:59 PM ET March 15th to download this.

This month's free ebook from publisher TOR
The Only Harmless Great Thing - Brooke Bolander

In order to download free, you do need to subscribe your email address.  They don't flood you with other marketing emails.  You do have to act lightning fast when you get the email because these stay available free almost no time.

 

This one I'd consider a novella or short story at only 96 pages.  Usually it's a full length novel, often the first of an ongoing series with an upcoming new release.

 

There's a bookclub on booklikes for these at http://booklikes.com/book-clubs/88/tor-monthly-free-ebook-science-fiction-and-fantasy   (TOR publishes mainly science fiction and fantasy genre books).

Review of "The Black Company" (The Black Company, #1) by Glen Cook
The Black Company: The First Novel of 'The Chronicles of The Black Company' - Glen Cook

Yay! A new, fat, juicy, doorstopper of a series for me. I really should have tried before but the hype, the debate over series order and all the "iconic origin of grimdark" claims had me pausing.

 

It is a fairly traditional epic fantasy from the voice of a soldier and physician. A world without exactly a lot of heroes. The Black Company are not exactly the good guys, just mercenaries that aren't as bad as some. Some remaining semblance of honor as a remnant of earlier times. Even the gods of this world do not have any clearcut good or bad.

 

I loved these characters anyway; stayed interesting. I didn't find it as grim or explicit as some more recent releases in grimdark. Looking forward to more in series. This arguably first book had hints and glimpses of past and future worldbuilding where I think I may have missed something.

 

Except for real life interfering, this would have been a one-sitting read. *publisher link for ebook edition is https://us.macmillan.com/books/978146... -- mentioning only because some goodreads editions said it's less than 200 pages. I downloaded mine from last month's publisher offered freebie.
