Zero Point!

Well it is Zero Point for this book because apparently people are already receiving their copies from Amazon! Don't forget to order your copy of Zero Point.


The billions of Zero Asset citizens of Earth are free from their sectors, free from the prospect of extermination from orbit, for Alan Saul has all but annihilated the Committee by dropping the Argus satellite laser network on it. The shepherds, spiderguns and razorbirds are somnolent, govnet is down and Inspectorate HQs are smoking craters. But power abhors a vacuum and, scrambling from the ruins, comes Serene Galahad. She must act before the remnants of Committee power are overrun by the masses. And she has the means.


Var Delex knows that Earth will eventually reach out to Antares Base and, because of her position under Chairman Messina, knows that the warship the Alexander is still available. An even more immediate problem is Argus Station hurtling towards the red planet, with whomever, or whatever trashed Earth still aboard. Var must maintain her grip on power and find a way for them all to survive.

As he firmly establishes his rule, Alan Saul delves into the secrets of Argus Station: the results of ghastly experiments in Humanoid Unit Development, a madman who may hold the keys to interstellar flight and research that might unlock eternity. But the agents of Earth are still determined to exact their vengeance, and they are closer to him than he knows...

Mr. Asher,

I have, yet again, trouble buying your wonderful book for Kindle. Basically it is only available on amazon.CO.UK, and Poland is locked with amazon.COM, where kindle edition of your book is not available at all. Do you happen to have any influence with the publisher to remedy this situation?

Happy day. I forgot that I had indeed pre-ordered Zero Point kindle edition from Amazon.com, but I received an email today stating it was delivered to my kindle!

If you notice on the link Cris provided, Amazon lists Zero Point Kindle edition as "currently unavailable."

I too cannot seem to buy your books in any electronic formats from the US or Canada. I would love to know who to yell at to get this resolved.

That's strange, I pre-ordered the Kindle edition from Italy on Amazon.com and I received it the day it was released.
Maybe it's unavailable to some countries?

GandalfPl said...

This must be it. When I follow the link provided by Cris I just see that the book is "currently" unavailable. However the amazon.com search doesn't even find me the ebook version of Mr Asher's book.

Finally I have found another place where they don't seem to have those stupid region locks. kobobooks.com sells Zero Point. They sell a DRM free epub, which can be easily converted to MOBI, which is readable by Kindle.

I also had issues buying this book for my Kindle. Had to use a UK proxy, as both Amazon.com and Amazon.uk.co have made this book unavaliable in Norway...

Great book though! :)

Half way through book and think it is great. Better than the departure at the moment but that may change when I read it again before the release of the next one!
