Night Shade puts out some good stuff (particularly work by Paolo Bacigalupi, who I think is great, mostly because he has an utterly convincing, utterly terrifying, and I'm pretty sure utterly accurate vision of the near future), so the sale's worth checking out if you're in the market for any sort of sci-fi or horror or fantasy. You've got to buy four books in order to snag the discount, and the ones I'd recommend, IF YOU CARE, are Bacigalupi's book of short stories, Pump Six, Bacigalupi's excellent breakthrough novel The Windup Girl, and—even though I haven't read it yet—Portland comic book writer Paul Tobin's forthcoming novel Prepare to Die! (Full disclosure: I recommend Tobin's book partly 'cause I know Paul and he's a good guy, partly because his book has a fantastic title, and mostly because the guy's comics writing hasn't let me down yet. I'm curious to see what he does with a novel.)
