Though we're Europe-based and we are interested in the World Cup (even if our home country, Ireland, isn't in it this time), word has reached us that there are actually people on both sides of the Atlantic who don't much care about it one way or another (or for other reasons just don't want to pay any attention to it right now). So we thought we'd give you something to distract you if you fall into this category.

From noon UK time on Sunday July 13th and until midnight Monday July 14th, all ebooks at Ebooks Direct -- the whole contents of our ebook catalog -- are 50% off.* (Go on, take advantage of the discount even if you do like football. We're not going to make a scene.) And then you can spend the next little while reading and ignoring the ruckus surrounding the finals.

The discount includes our newest offering, the complete 9-volume set of the revised and updated New Millennium Editions of the Young Wizards series -- an amazing bargain when the discounted price means you're paying just a shade over USD $3.00 per ebook!

There are all kinds of goodies on offer -- from Diane Duane's standalone fantasy novels like the urban fantasy / police procedural Stealing the Elf-King's Roses and the historical fantasy Raetian Tales 1: A Wind from the South, to Peter Morwood's "Clan Wars" prequels Greylady and Widowmaker (out of print for a time from their UK publisher, but now available exclusively here in updated versions) and his classic "Tales of Old Russia" series, both in individual volumes and the new 3-volume omnibus ebook.

All our books are available in the major ebook formats, all are DRM-free, and many are available in multi-format bundles at no extra cost (because why should you have to pay extra just because you have more than once device?)

So explore what our store has to offer! And you can also sign up for our general mailing list in the footer at the bottom of the page if you'd like to be kept informed of new releases across the bookstore.

Whether you're a World Cup fan or not, thanks for dropping by!
