Each month Pheonix Pick, an imprint of Arcmanor.com, offers a free science fiction ebook. The free ebook for March is Leigh Brackett’s The Big Jump.

From Phoenix Pick:

About the Author:
Leigh Douglass Brackett (December 7, 1915 – March 18, 1978) was an American author, particularly of science fiction. She was also a screenwriter, known for her work on famous films such as The Big Sleep
(1945), Rio Bravo (1959), The Long Goodbye (1973) and The Empire Strikes Back (1980).
Her novel The Long Tomorrow is one of the original post-holocaust books and considered by many to be a classic work on the subject.
About the Book (The Big Jump):
What awaits us out in space?
New star-drive engines promise to open up the galaxy to humankind. But the first ship to use the engines disappears and a sole survivor returns...alone and dying of some strange type of radiation.
No one can figure out what has happened to the ship or the crew. Nor does anyone know what happens to a ship travelling using star-drive technology.
Does some unknown horror await us out there?
The only way to find out is to go out again. And Arch Comyn is determined to be the one to solve the mystery.
But is he, and the rest of mankind, ready for whatever awaits us beyond The Big Jump?
The coupon code for March is 9991393 and will be good through March 31. Download your free e-book at http://www.PPickings.com. Select the format that suits you (PDF, Mobi, EPub, PDb or Lrf).

While you're there you can elect to sign up for monthly mailings, and check out great deals on books.

The March free e-book selection at The Chicago Press is Pilgrimage to the End of the World: The Road to Santiago de Compostela by Conrad Rudolph.

From Chicago Press:

Spring is the season for a pilgrimage, observed Chaucer. The March e-book traces the famous Camino de Santiago—the Way of St. James—a pilgrimage route from La Puy in France, through the Pyrenees, to Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain. It’s a route followed by millions from medieval times to the present (and was also followed by Martin Sheen in the 2010 film, The Way.) Rudolph’s book is at once travel guide, literary work, historical study, and memoir.

Get your free e-book edition of Pilgrimage to the End of the World: The Road to Santiago de Compostela during the month of March.

Enter your email address and instructions will be mailed to you. NOTE: Grayscale Kindle e-ink devices unfortunately will not be able to open this ebook. You should be able to read it on most other devices, assuming you have the correct software application installed. More info can be found on the download form.

Again, you can elect to sign up for email notices so you'll be informed of future free e-book of the month selections.
