One of my favorite small presses, Small Beer Press [run by pals Kelly Link and Gavin Grant] are having an ass-whoopin' sale, with 20% of the proceeds going to the Barack Obama campaign.
If you've been wanting to try some of the fine books that Kelly and Gavin publish (including some of Kelly's own fantabulous writing as well as my client Alan DeNiro's book of short stories Skinny Dipping in the Lake of the Dead), you couldn't have picked a better time. Not only do they publish some amazing titles and authors, but they produce some of the most physically beautiful editions of books that you'll ever see. Not sure which books to get? Well, they've put together some ideas for you in handy pre-packs. You can also pick up two subscriptions to their 'zine Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet for the price of one for a mere $31! It's a great gift for that book nerd in your life!
And! Those crazy kids are giving away free e-books in non-DRM editions, in pretty much any format you can think of. (And if you have a Kindle or Sony Reader, download the .rtf versions, not the PDFs).
Here's a suggestion that seems only fair: if you download one of the free books, please consider buying at least one book through the sale. Small Beer Press is one of my favorite small publishers and I really want them to stay in business, m'kay?
