    No word yet on February discounts. Amazon US is running another of its semi-regular "Spend $25 on ebooks, get a $6 ebook credit" promotions, which I know some of you use to snap up non-discounted Trek titles. It'll run through 1/28.

    I got the ones that I could but a couple that are on special in the US haven’t been released as ebooks in the UK.

    Not only that, but Trial by Error is actually on sale *this month*. I wonder if that's an error (lol), or if they're really carrying it over to next month? I don't think I've seen them do that before.

    Nice to see The Never-Ending Sacrifice and Q-in-Law. I believe those are both new. (I think The Search is the other only new one, although The Stuff of Dreams might be new too, not sure.)

    Hmmm yeah I bought Trial By Error for the January sale. Strange that it would be on sale again in February. I might pick up Q in Law and Never Ending Sacrifice this month. The rest I already own.

    The Never-Ending Sacrifice was on sale for $2.99 back in September 2017. The Stuff of Dreams is an original digital-only book which came out in 2014. The Search was available in July of 2018 for 99 cents.
    I don't show Q-Squared coming out on feature sale previously.

    I think that one might have been one of those US-only ones?

    I think it was from the very first monthly sale ever, in January 2015, back before they were a regular thing. It was one of six books marked down to $1.99. I'm guessing it was probably their first "trial balloon". Predates this thread by a couple of years! :D

    Why would the sig edition of Imzadi and the sequel Imzadi II both be on sale? Doesn't the sig edition of Imzadi include the sequel as well!?

    Yes, I have the signature edition from a previous sale and it has Imzadi and Imzadi II. Weird month of repeats.

    I'm not going to complain (but at least I won't buy it twice!). There's lots I don't have due to my previous game plan of only buying TOS books. I'm going to branch out into TNG.

    I'll be picking up the two Q books, not much else there I'm interested in.

    The ebook edition of the original Imzadi is incorrectly labeled as being Imzadi Forever, but it actually only contains the first book. (There’s also an ebook edition of the actual omnibus.) The same confusion happened when the two separate editions of the books were part of the December 2019 deals.

    Two of those look new to me: Q-in-Law and Q Squared. So, that's a couple I'll need on Monday.

    The deals are live now. My feelings for Q-Squared and Imzadi are more mixed now than when I was a teen, but they both still have enough amazing moments to be worth $1. McCormack's books seem to be getting better as I get older, so I also picked up TNES for a reread.

    Worth noting that this time they actually put the omnibus version of the Imzadi books on sale, so there’s no reason to buy Imzadi II if you’re getting the Signature Edition.

    This is true. However, the page numbering is treating the entirety of Imzadi II as if it is a single page. Does Amazon ever act to update things like that if they are made aware of the issue?

    I might pick up Q-in-Law, but the rest I either own or am not interested in.

    I don't think the Imzadi Signature Edition is available on Amazon UK, at least it doesn't come up in searches, so having the two individual books also on offer is helpful.

    Similarly Q In Law isn't available as an ebook in the UK which is annoying as it is the one title I would buy, the rest I already have.
