Tale(s) of the Five Collection for Hugo Nominators

This collection page contains links to ebook versions of works in the Tale of the Five series -- comprising the three present novels of the trilogy and the stories making up the bridging sequence between the trilogy and the main series' upcoming completion in The Door Into Starlight.

To be eligible for nomination for a Hugo award for Best Series in a given year, a series must comprise at least three works totalling at least 240,000 words, and one work in the series must have been released during the previous year.

The first three works in the Tale of the Five series total approximately 330,000 words. The first 20,000-word bridging novella, Tales of the Five: The Levin-Gad, was published in August 2018. The 75,000-word novel Tales of the Five: The Landlady was published in May 2019. Three more works in this bridging sequence -- Tales of the Five: The Librarian, and the two others (as yet untitled) -- will be published during 2020/2021.

All works appearing on this page are available at Ebooks Direct at a 75% discount for those interested in reading them in consideration of Hugo nomination. (A note for interested parties: the texts of the series works available here are identical to those available at Amazon.com, though those ebooks/paperbacks are not discounted.)

As with all our ebooks, the Tale(s) of the Five works are all DRM-free and can be moved among your e-reading devices at your pleasure; and if you lose them or change platforms, we'll replace them for free. Just contact us at the store's support address with your order number.

Please note that this discount code is limited to one use per customer, so if you wish to use it on more than one item in the Tales of the Five collection, all the purchases you're interested in must be in the cart for that transaction. Also please note that if a sale is presently in process in the store, your discount code can be applied on top of the sale price, and will give you an even better bargain!
