This is a new affiliate association for The Templeton Gate. ReAnimus Press is a fairly new enterprise which is bringing some older SF titles back to readers, originally just in e-book formats, later offering print editions through Amazon's CreateSpace division. In just the few short weeks since I was made aware of them they have added quite a few more titles, and I hope that continues. They are selling the titles direct from their website, as well as on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and probably some other retail sites as well. However, one of their editors assures me that the authors (or the author's estate) receives a higher commission from them than they get from those other retailers, so if you care about an artist receiving due compensation for their work, then ReAnimus and I would appreciate it if you could use these links when considering your purchases. Another advantage of ReAnimus is that you can get whatever e-book format you need (mobi for Kindle, ePub for Nook, etc.), and you can even get multiple formats for one price if you have different devices that require different formats. No worry about having to re-purchase a title if you've already paid for it once. If you switch from Kindle to Nook or vice-versa, or later get an iPad or other tablet, you can get another format at no extra charge. Just click the link above to see what they have to offer, plus check out the titles below for books that have been reviewed. As with the main banner above, click the underlined title to read the review and the image to go to their site for purchase. Thanks.
