US publisher Random House has unveiled the first five titles in their Suvudu First Book Library. Designed to introduce new readers to science fiction and fantasy series, the Suvudu Free First Book Library allows readers to access free digital copies of the first book in each series. The program is launching with access to His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik, Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb, Settling Accounts: Return Engagement by Harry Turtledove, Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson, and Blood Engines by T.A. Pratt.
The books will be made available through Random House's science fiction/fantasy portal, Suvudu.com, as well as on other content services, including Scribd.com and the Stanza ebook reader application for the iPhone.
Christine Cabello at Random House told the Nest, "The Suvudu Free First Book promotion provides us with a new digital vehicle to build an author's fan base and is an ideal way to bring new readers to these series."
Coming soon are Terry Brooks's Magic Kingdom for Sale: Sold!, and Elizabeth Moon's Trading in Danger.
