    And at least for USA the last VOY novel A Pocket Full of Lies (Jan. 2016) Ebook is now $3.99, and DS9's Ascendance, and also Sacraments of Fire from 2015, and Never-Ending Sacrifice (2009) Ebooks are now $2.99. And plus 2 more Titan novels, Synthesis, and Over a Torrent Sea, Ebooks (2009) are priced at $3.99 each. Also, for Enterprise, Last Full Measure (2006) is now $3.99. Some other Trek novels which had been $3.99 before are still that way, too, and the 99 cent books as well.

    Well two weeks ago PFoL was $4.99, as was Last Full Measure and the 2 Titan books, and the DS9 Ebooks were $3.99, so current prices mentioned appear to be updates. Well was just fyi, cheerio!

    Oh, sorry about that, I just saw the titles and didn't realize they changed the prices. Thanks for the update.

    Anyone know how to purchase an e-book on Amazon using Reward points, like you can with a physical purchase?

    Amazon's checkout option when wanting to use a gift card are strange and mysterious. Half the time I end up messing it up.

    Currently, I cannot apply rewards points to my kindle purchases because my account has the kindle purchases set for the "Buy with 1 click" option, which doesn't allow the chance to choose to use reward points. I'm guessing there's probably a way to change that, but I've never tried to figure it out. I just go ahead and let all my kindle purchases go on my charge card and use the points I accrue to buy physical books and other items.

    It doesn't look like you can turn it off on the Google Kindle app, but you can turn it off on the main Amazon app. I'm not sure if it's the same on the version for the Kindle device, but I would think it probably would be.
    I always turn that off if I have the option because I tend to tap things by accident a lot.

    Nice! I don't believe Myriad Universes was part of the promotion last year, so I'll be picking these up!

    That's great that the promo seems to be continuing till the end of the year! Maybe it could be an annual event! ;) And it looks like both String Theory and The Fall are new to the $1.99 promotion too!

    They weren't as of yesterday, but the sale prices are showing up in the Canadian Kobo store as of today.

    I didn't even realize that this month's sale is actually $0.99 rather than the regular $1.99... even better! :techman:

    The Myriad Universe trilogy is now 99 cents on most marketplaces.

    Also, Titan books 5 and 6 are 2.99, and the earlier Mirror Universe books are ranging from 3.99 to 4.99. Rise Like Lions is still full price though.

    One other deals I noticed are Khan: To Reign in Hell for 2.99,

    Same here man, I had the first one, and managed to complete the series. I hope they make a few more of these sometimes, as these stories were all very good.
