Ann Leckie's outstanding The Raven Tower is one of Amazon's deals of the day

It didn't get the love of her Ancillary Justice series, maybe because it wasn't spaceship-style scifi. But I loved it. Read it and immediately read it again. No spaceships, but otherwise extremely similar to the Ancillary Justice series, with a focus on duty, choice, gender, and the difficulty an immortal non-human intelligence has interacting with mere humans. Leckie's also really good at naming things.  One of the deals of the day at Amazon.

I also enjoyed John Scalzi's Red Shirts, which is on sale today.
