Millenium books 4 & 5 aren't Stieg Larsson and are widely held to be not as good...

Anyway, just spotted Robin Hobb's The Complete Liveship Traders Trilogy: Ship of Magic, The Mad Ship, Ship of Destiny for £4.49:,digital-text,148&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_6

The individual volumes are £1.99 each:
Ship of Magic:,digital-text,148&sr=1-5
The Mad Ship:,digital-text,148&sr=1-4
Ship of Destiny:,digital-text,148&sr=1-3

Having already got the first, I just grabbed the last 2.

Smashwords ( has their summer sale posted running throughout July. It's the usual morass of self-published works with a smattering of back-list titles where the rights have reverted to the author. Note that prices are in US$, and unless you have a US bank account, it's best to pay via PayPal.

Of note:
Ruthanna Emrys: Imperfect Commentaries is $3.50 (50% off)
Very recently published short story collection not available on Amazon (at least in the UK).

CatYelling (publishers) have a number of titles by Will Shetterly & Emma Bull. Not in the sale, but they tend to be cheaper than Amazon:
I've picked up electronic versions of various titles (I already have Liavek in both electronic and print - note that the electronic versions differ because of rights).

Lavie Tidhar ( is currently 50% off in the sale. The 4 Apex World SF books (one - #4? - was in a recent StoryBundle) are $2.50 each and a couple of novellas are $1.50 each and thus cheaper than Amazon.
