    It looks like the VOY novelization Endgame and the TNG numbered novel Infiltrator have also been marked down to $0.99 on Amazon US today.

    Does anyone know how to get around the search on Amazon now.

    I used to do 3 steps to search from @dstyer from awhile ago.

    1) select kindle store type in "Star Trek"
    2) on the left side under DEPARTMENTS I selected "Star Trek" again
    3) changed the search setting to "Price low to high"

    But step 2 is not and option anymore. I get comics and other things now, other than just straight results of ebooks of the novels.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks in advance,
    -Koric

    From what I can see, you might have to go through a few more steps now:

    To get to the "Star Trek Series" category, I had to click through ALL the departments in the path:

    Kindle Store
    Kindle eBooks
    Science Fiction & Fantasy
    Science Fiction
    Science Fiction TV, Movie & Game Tie-In
    Star Trek Series <- Finally!

    Adding the word “pocket” to your search will filter out most of the irrelevant items as well; that’s how I found Endgame and Infiltrator this morning.

    Just to add that Picard: The Last Best Hope is also 99p on UK Amazon this month.
    I find that the Star Trek ebooks finalise themselves on the first Tuesday of the month in the UK.

    "The Last Best Hope" is definitely worth the purchase for folks who haven't picked it up yet.

    This month's selection is quite the grab bag of previously discounted titles. Disappointing for me, but beneficial for those who missed out on earlier chances to snag The Final Reflection and the Millennium omnibus. Looks like it'll just be The Captain's Oath for me.

    There were only a couple books that I don't already own, but that's cool, cause my backlog is insane at this point anyway. I'd prolly need a couple years to get through them all at this point.

    Hey all,

    Amazon is running an ebook promotion now.

    Read for 3 days between November 1 and November 14 get a $5 ebook credit.

    Any ebook bought or previously sold on Amazon, but the trick is you have to read with WIFI on.

    Details at the link:
    https://www.amazon.com/b?node=21461338011

    Just a heads up. Many thanks to @dstyer for the help and instructions on Amazon searches again.

    All the best. Please stay safe.

    As with a lot of Amazon’s timed eBook credit promotions, this one is limited to specific customers; when I click that link I get told that I’m not eligible.

    I'm sorry @Brendan Moody . Maybe because Im a Prime Member? Try to sign in and click on the banner in any ebook page? See if that might work? It says by invite only.

    But, normally the discounts are available to all Amazon customers.

    Either way, Im sorry. I meant well. I didnt realize it was invite only. Keep trying to check and see if you get invited hopefully?

    Its another great month for me. I'll be getting all of them, apart from Endgame and Picard (bought that in another sale). Now all I have to do is start reading them

    Picked up Captain's Oath, Infiltrator and the Millennium omnibus. I missed out on the latter two when they were on sale previously, so I'm really pleased they've popped up again!

    If you have interest in them, Millennium, The Captain’s Oath, and The Final Reflection are easily worth the dollar.

    Are there any known differences between the Millennium omnibus and the individual releases?

    Quoted for truth. Three absolute classics.
