Captain Vorpatril's Alliance by Lois MacMaster Bujold

Out in Baen hc at the begining of this month, this is the ebook for UK and Euro Kindle readers who just want to click rather than wander off to http://BaenEbooks.com for the Baen published ebook.

For fans of Ivan Vorpatril (Miles Vorkosigan gets only one scene).

All Vorkosigan Saga books and stories are now in the UK Kindle store. Information from the author's email chat list http://lists.herald.co.uk/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/lois-bujold

Don't know if I'll be allowed to post this on an Amazon forum - but I've always bought her ebooks directly from the publisher (formatted for the kindle) and never had any problem. The exchange rate varies, of course, but I think it's currently cheaper for this book, and certainly for some of the others, because Amazon is selling them individually where Baen sells the omnibus editions.
I do, however, buy the actual books from Amazon, and it might be worth mentioning that the first edition (in hardback) of her last book, Cyroburn, included a CD of that ebook plus all the other ebooks in the series (with the exception of 'Memory' which was accidentally omitted.) So if someone is looking to buy a complete-ish set, or just have second copies for their kindle, it might be worth keeping an eye out for that.

Having said all that, I paid well over the odds for Captain Vorpatril's Alliance, because Baen released it as an eArc early, and still felt I got my money's worth.

12/12/12 Edited to add - apparently Baen have recently reached an agreement with Amazon, which will entail some changes to their (Baen's) pricing, so this post may no longer be accurate or relevant.

Very interesting news - I almost passed this thread over thinking it was self promotion. Didn't realise it was about Bujold - It might be worth re-working the title to avoid confusion.

Didn't occur to me that the thread title was not as full as it should have been.

I'l repost as you suggest since there is no other way to do it ?
