Since the SFR collection (and I don't call it an anthology because the books range up to novel-length in size) is only offered for a few months each year, this seems like a well thought out plan that will benefit an even wider variety of readers by getting these stories into the hands of a larger audience.
That's because a lot of KU subscribers won't buy books outside of Kindle Unlimited. After all, they pay a fee to take part in the Amazon program. So this new tack has the potential to reach an even larger pool of readers.
And that makes me happy, because what's good for Pets in Space is generally good for SFR as a whole. :)
Of course, under the Kindle Unlimited program, those who don't subscribe can still purchase the collection for the standard price of $4.99 on Amazon (a HUGE bargain for readers when the sheer size of the book is considered--1,141 pages).
Haven't heard much about the collection yet? Then I want to highlight a few of entertaining blogs written about the collection. The authors of Pets in Space work very diligently to get the word out about their wonderful stories, so check out this sampling of entertaining (and possibly addicting) posts.
Ruby Lionsdrake talks about her alien pet--the quashi--and includes an excerpt from Quashi, a Mandrake Company Series story.
Alexis Glynn Latner - who flies gliders - discusses how her starliner pilots' world was developed from modern day commercial aviation dynamics in her story, Starway.
Anna Hackett talks about her pet, Fiend--"an alien canine of dubious origins" from her story, Desert Hunter, in the Galactic Gladiators Series.
In a blog titled "She Surprised Pauline" Pauline Baird Jones talks about Lady Yodrirka--a scary, sentient alien raptor with an enormous wingspan in her story, Operation Ark, a story in her Project Enterprise Series.
Kyndra Hatch writes about how the freaky sounds of a frozen lake (complete with video--trust me, it's eerily awesome!) inspired scenes in her story The Fall.
If my memory serves, Pets in Space 3: Embrace the Passion will only be available on Kindle Unlimited until February 1st--and only available anywhere for a short time after that--so tick tick tick tick!
If you haven't yet, think about grabbing a copy before it's gone forever.
Have a great week!
