Colin Harvey Memorial Charity Booksale

From their press release:

Angry Robot author Colin Harvey died of a massive stroke on August 16th 2011, aged just 50.
To mark the one year anniversary of his passing, and to continue to bring his work to the wider audience it so richly deserves, we're offering a bundle of Colin’s ebooks - his two Angry Robot novels Damage Time and Winter Song, plus his flash fiction mini-collection for the special price of only £6.00 - via the Robot Trading Company.
All proceeds from the sale of this bundle will be donated by Angry Robot to Colin’s favourite charity, Above and Beyond.

Colin was kind enough to do an interview for me a few years back.  Here are the books in the bundle, which would normally sell for £11.57:
Damage Time

It's 2050 and sea-levels have swamped today's coastal regions. New York City is protected by tidal barriers and the USA is bankrupt.

Detective Pervez (Pete) Shah serves with the NYPD's Web Crimes Division as a Memory Association Specialist. When he's accused of murdering a glamorous woman in a bar, he must find the killer, save himself ... and the world.

Winter Song

When Karl Allman's spaceship crashed, he had only one question:

Nano Edition

It's unlikely that many of you will have read more than one of the stories in this mini-collection; two of them appeared in print magazines two or three years ago - this is their first appearance online - while the last story is original.
'Footsteps in the Snow' was a Christmas piece for which the editor wanted something of the flavour of the Season. The illegal immigrant Icelandic elves are amongst my favourite creations.
'Transient' >was - almost inevitably - written for Halloween, while 'A Little Respect' was sparked off by the 70th anniversary of the Second World War.
Lastly, 'Fairytale' was a Valentine's Day piece for which the recipient changed his mind. No matter; I'm delighted that Ella gets her moment in the sun.
These stories are also fairly atypical of my work. These are lighter than most of my stories, written for people who are new to SF and fantasy. Hopefully you'll have as much fun reading them as I had writing them.
