New customers can access them by paying more than the current average on the site, which will also get them all six books from the first week of our promotion!

Readers have one more week to buy the bundle that includes Little Brother by Cory DoctorowBoneshaker by Cherie PriestSpin by Robert Charles Wilson and Shards of Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold.

These are the extras included in the original offer:
