FREE BOOKS: Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel; The Savior & The Heretic, by Daniel & Drake

Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel
Trade paperback, excellent condition.

Decades after an influenza pandemic crashes civilization, a troupe of musicians and actors travels across Ontario and Michigan. The book has slices of life from decades before and after the pandemic, telling the stories of several different people. By the time the book ends, the author has managed to show how all their lives manage to be interlinked with that of an actor who died before the pandemic, and with a comic book written by his ex-wife. Lots of scenes set in Toronto. Very well written, very engaging.

The Heretic, by Tony Daniel and David Drake
The Savior, by Tony Daniel and David Drake

Hardcover, excellent condition.

A civilization spanning multiple star systems crashed hard thousands of years ago. On one now-isolated desert planet, humanity survives along the banks of a Nile-like river, with primitive levels of technology. For transportation, they ride dinosaurs. An anti-technology religion deliberately stifles innovation. Suddenly, a space capsule lands, and implants a local inhabitant with the minds of a computer and a human from another planet. Their planet recently recovered from the collapse of civilization, and now they want to help other planets recover. They give the local person advice on how to do so. It's a continuation to the series "The General" by S.M. Stirling and David Drake.

If you'd like these, please comment. If multiple people want them, I'll give preference to the ones with lowest postage costs, and then flip a coin. If postage costs would exceed the cost of picking them up at your local used bookstore, I'll find a home for them locally. NOTE: US Customs requires me to get the full legal name, home address, and telephone number of recipients in the US.
