Consternation and uproar

How is this even possible? From now until midnight Pacific time, Sequart (publisher of scholarly tomes on comic books and related culture) is making the Kindle editions of both Mutant Cinema by Tom McLean, a study of the X-Men film trilogy, and the anthology Teenagers from the Future: Essays on the Legion of Super-Heroes edited by Tim Callahan available as free downloads for Kindle. All you have to do is click on those titles and each book is yours for no cost whatsoever.

If you don't own a Kindle and you've been thinking "I'd love to try out the free Kindle reader software for my PC or Mac but there simply aren't any critical analyses of the original X-Men film trilogy available for it," this is indeed your lucky day.

If you just now said to yourself "That's all well and good, but a hefty collection of entertaining and insightful essays about the adventures of teen super-heroes in the 30th Century is more my cup of tea, if only it were available in a more convenient form so I don't have to lug around such a heavy volume," then step right up.

And if you've ever voiced the sentiment "I certainly would love to read that essay my good friend Richard Bensam is so proud of, that one about the death and resurrection of Lightning Lad called 'The Perfect Storm' but quite frankly I am reluctant to sully our friendship with something so crude and base as a financial transaction, if only there were some more noble alternative," this is a wonderful solution to your dilemma.

Remember, this offer lasts only 24 hours and presumably some of those hours will already have passed by the time you read this. So act now! Supplies aren't limited but time is.

[Update: And this offer is now over. Thanks to everyone who downloaded a copy; I'm pleased to say the promotion has been a great success!]
