    Rogue Saucer - brilliant! Always loved that book; still have my hardcopy, so never went for the e-book before now. Probably picking up a lot of the rest, too.

    Some great ones this month. I read A Stitch In Times when it first came out and remember it being excellent, but I no longer have my paperback, so will get this. Similarly The Wrath of Khan novelisation. And I'm generally getting hold of the classic TNG numbered novels, and Rogue Saucer sounds barmy, quite frankly, so I shall grab that too!

    Be forewarned: there's some horrific stuff in The Three-Minute Universe that I didn't find typical of a Trek novel.

    A Stitch in Time is awesome!

    Huh, I've seen some favorable reviews about The Three-Minute Universe to the effect that it's an underrated hidden gem or something. Is it psychologically icky horrific, or hard-R rated gore/violence horrific? Or just dealing with topics that Star Trek usually tends not to?

    They don't seem to be live on Amazon UK yet, hoping they're just being slow...

    Amazon UK can be a bit unreliable with these offers, sometimes they don't go live until the first Tuesday of the month.

    You can buy the Star Trek eBooks from eBooks.com (in the UK) for less then from Amazon and because they are DRM free, you can use Calibre to convert the ePub to KF8 (AZW3) to read on a Kindle.It's a win-win as you'll get the eBook for even less and have them in ePub.

    Just don't do what I did on Tuesday and buy Moments Asunder from there, not realising it's DRM protected and can't be read on an eink Kindle...

    Amazon in the UK has the following at 99p in their monthly deals:

    Picard - The Last Best Hope (right after it was part of September deals)

    Also on sale are Kate Mulgrew’s memoir, Born with Teeth and Nomad, an original novel by James Swallow.

    Unfortunately, the offers don't seem to be active on ebooks.com either.

    I guess I have almost no reason left to not read Planet X at this point.

    Time to archive my dead tree copies of Rogue Saucer, A Stitch in Time, Ex Machina...

    Bonus book! Thanks for the heads-up! :D

    If it's that widespread (both Amazon and Kobo in both countries), then it was probably just added to the sale but never got updated on the sale page. I think the same thing happened earlier this year with another book, and it eventually showed up on the sale page later in the month.

    Got everything I wanted apart from Three Minute Universe which is not available as an ebook in the UK.
