(A note on Daily Deals: All prices current at the time of posting and subject to change. Most items marked Daily Deals are good for only the day posted.
Many large promotions have discount pricing that is set by the publisher. This usually means that titles can be found at a discount price across most platforms (with iTunes sometimes being the exception). If you have a favorite retailer you like to patronize, check the title on that website. There is a good chance that they will be matching the sale price.)
Daily Links are interesting links I discover as I go about my online day. The frequency and number of links posted depend upon the daily news. I also post other, different links of interest on Twitter, Facebook, and on the Google Plus eBook Evangelist Page.
If you like to read mysteries and crime novels in general and translated titles in particular, you may enjoy today’s Kindle Daily Deal. Amazon is offer all five English translations of German author Jutta Profjit’s Morgue Drawer Series for just $1.99 each. In the opener, Pasha, the ghost of a small time car thief, inhabits Morgue Drawer Four with his body. Rather than move on into the afterlife, he is determined to solve his own murder. To do so, he joins forces with the only human who can hear him, Cologne’s uptight coroner, Dr. Martin Gänsewein.
The book was shortlisted for the Friedrich Glauser Prize, the highest crime novel prize in Germany. The series is part of the AmazonCrossing imprint which specializes in translated titles. That means this one is an Amazon exclusive.. All five books are translated by the same translator, Erik J. Macki, who, I thought, does a great job with this series. It is very readable, but still retains it sense of German identity. 🙂
One of my goals over the last two years has been to read more translated works. This series is one of my personal favorites. What about you? Do you like to read translated works?
I actually had quite a bit of interest in my blog entry announcing that Ed McBain’s books are now available for the Kindle. Well, today only, all 35 titles of the Ed McBain 87th Precinct mysteries are on sale for only 99 cents each! Normally, these are $4.99 each.
The deal ends tonight at midnight, PST.
I think I am going to buy them all…
