Eos, the HarperCollins’s imprint for scifi and fantasy is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary, and is giving away a free ebook every 2 months for the rest of 2008. It’s first offering is Hobb’s Shaman’s Crossing, which is available for Mobi, Acrobot and Microsoft Reader formats.
This is very similar to a Microsoft Reader initiative many years ago, where they offered two free ebooks of excellent variety every week for a period of time. That time it was to jumpstart the ebook market. This time, Eos is simply content to share the joy.
Not too impressed with Hobb’s Assassin Trilogy, despite George RR Martin’s glowing endorsements, but hey, Shaman’s Crossing is free, so why not? Who knows, I may like this new trilogy, and buy the rest of the books.
