Free books! Usual rules apply: first person to request the book gets it within a two-tiered system: Minneapolitans or people visiting the area soon get first dibs, then the rest of you-all within North America. I'm willing to send books abroad for a few of you, but mostly I want it to be something special and important, not just a whim, if I'm going to pay overseas postage.
Some of these are duplicates, some are things I disliked, and some are just things I didn't love enough to keep on the shelves. The bar is much, much higher for me to keep mysteries on the shelves than spec fic of any variety.
Oh, and if you want a whole series, I prefer to keep the sets together if possible, so that I'm not trying to give away book 3 in a series. So if you want to try one, try both or all three or whatever, and then you can pass them on as a group if you decide you don't want them either.
Oh, and if you want to know what something is beyond the brief tags, ask, and I will do my best to answer.
