    What you can do is go to eBooks.com and switch to the US to buy Dragon's Honor.

    The March deals are up at the usual page. I can recommend The Lives of Dax and Atonement from this group.

    Hmm. I own every one of these titles already. It's possible I bought a couple of these at full price, but...are they all repeats of previous discounts?

    Looks like they might be. I own all of them as well and aside from Atonement and the Disco books, I'm pretty sure I picked them up in previous deals.

    EDIT: I take that back. I did pick up Atonement as part of a deal. In fact, all six of the non-Disco books were in last March's deal. Don't know about the latter because I definitely picked them up separately.

    Damn, I missed my opportunity to get Q Continuum on sale. Guess that's what I get for not coming to this thread in a while.

    I think you're right, they are. Nothing to buy this month...

    Depends where you buy your ebooks from. Amazon currently still has it at the discounted price. But I don't know how long that will last, it may only be until midnight PT tonight? (So you might only have less than 30 minutes!)

    Although between the omnibus volume and the individual volumes, it seems this has been part of the sales more than once, so it may come up again at some point. They do seem to be doing more repeats lately.

    March 2022 Trek Deals page:

    https://www.simonandschuster.com/p/star-trek-ebook-deals

    Star Trek: Discovery: Die Standing

    The Lives Of Dax

    Seven of Nine

    Atonement

    Surak's Soul

    The Battle of Betazed
    By Susan Kearney and Charlotte Douglas

    Uhura's Song
    By Janet Kagan


    The deals are all good until April 3rd 2022.

    @historypeats It’s going to be a LONG month LOL.

    I’d like to think that the rationale behind the repeat deals is that we are all meant to be free to watch Picard season 2 when it premieres, instead of reading, but still...Decisions, Decisions. LOL.

    Hopefully, someday soon we will get the TIME TO series on sale, 800 ebooks to choose from and we get repeats. Crazier things have happened I suppose.

    Well, here’s to hoping against hope. :)

    I miss the old webpage address as it was easier to see the month and date and keep track of past deals. It makes it all the more important to post all the deals on here for future reference,

    Someone at S&S is on to us. :)
    All thanks go to @Smiley for the heads up first too.

    That's a nice mix of books. Die Standing is fun for Georgiou fans, and makes amusing use of a TOS character. I recall enjoying Uhura's Song: cat lovers will dig it. The second season of Discovery completely contradicts Desperate Hours in terms of the Spock/Burnham relationship, if that sort of thing bothers you. Lives of Dax was an enjoyable read, though I read it ages ago.

    I wish they would lean more on newer books, as I already have a number of the older ones. I'd especially like to see more of the Picard books and recent TOS novels given a discount: I think they've pretty much put all the Disco novels on sale.

    I am kinda surprised they didn't at least do some Picard-centric books for this month's sale. The only one that obviously ties in to Picard is Seven of Nine.

    Still several good books here if folks don't have them yet.

    The Picard tie ins were all last month. My guess is that they were going off of the February premiere date that had been in place for awhile and then shifted earlier this year(?). Might have been too late to change the books they had on sale.

    Ahh it's the books that feature women characters in celebration of International Women's Day on 8th March again. Could they not have picked out a few different ones this year?

    True. One easy swap would be The Eternal Tide instead of Atonement. Both feature Janeway on the cover.

    Wow. It's been literally years since I've gone a month without snagging a Trek book on a monthly deal. Feels weird.

    Per my Amazon order history, many of these books were part of their April 2021 deal

    "The Battle of Betazed" is a great book, especially for ninety-nine cents.

    Weirdly, I bought almost all of those in March 2021 during that monthly deal.
