Google books hits Australia

Google Books is now operating in Australia, teaming up with independents like Booktopia below. - Australia's #1 online bookstore

Haven’t really had time to do a comprehensive search of content but it looks encouraging.

ImageFirst up we have Trent Jamieson’s Business of Death, the conclusion to his Deathworks series and incorporating the first two books in an omnibus.

On amazon it’s not available as an ebook (Gasp!) but its available as an ebook from Booktopia/Google for $12.99 which let’s face it is pretty bloody good for three books.

Edit: also available on Kobo for the same price.


Angel-Arias_web-192x300I was hoping for Rowena Cory Daniells’ King Rolen’s Kin Trilogy as it’s available as a bundle from the Sony store(if you happen to live in the US) but no luck, it’s not available on either Kobo or Google.

My final check for speculative fiction was Marianne de Pierres. Booktopia/Google has nine of her booksThe Sentients of Orion, The Parrish Plessis series and her two YA novels Burn Bright and Angel Arias.

I also tried looking for Jennifer Mills’ Diamond Anchor and Gone which I know to exist in ebook form - no luck.

So at this point in time it looks like it’s a bit patchy but it’s early days yet.
