    I suspect that I will cave in and buy the e-book of
    An Eagle Named Freedom: My True Story of a Remarkable Friendship, by Jeff Guidry.
    Currently $1.99 at Kobo and Google Play books. Might just be me, but I expect it to be a real tear-jerker.

    Did you get a refund, or are you planning to complement your reading with onion slicing and dicing? ;)

    William Gibson has trained his eye on the future for decades, ever since coining the term “cyberspace” and then popularizing it in his classic speculative novel Neuromancer in the early 1980s. Cory Doctorow raved that The Peripheral is “spectacular, a piece of trenchant, far-future speculation that features all the eyeball kicks of Neuromancer.” Now Gibson is back with Agency—a science fiction thriller heavily influenced by our most current events.

    Synopsis/tease:
    Verity Jane, gifted app whisperer, takes a job as the beta tester for a new product: a digital assistant, accessed through a pair of ordinary-looking glasses. “Eunice,” the disarmingly human AI in the glasses, manifests a face, a fragmentary past, and a canny grasp of combat strategy. Realizing that her cryptic new employers don’t yet know how powerful and valuable Eunice is, Verity instinctively decides that it’s best they don’t.

    Meanwhile, a century ahead in London, in a different time line entirely, Wilf Netherton works amid plutocrats and plunderers, survivors of the slow and steady apocalypse known as the jackpot. His boss, the enigmatic Ainsley Lowbeer, can look into alternate pasts and nudge their ultimate directions. Verity and Eunice are her current project. Wilf can see what Verity and Eunice can’t: their own version of the jackpot, just around the corner, and the roles they both may play in it.


    As you can see, this is from the Play Store. I've been revealing my life-secrets so have a small balance in the Play Store -- I always look for the freebies, but between awareness of the author, and it being an NPR Best Book of 2020, and the free money, after about 10 pages into the sample I grabbed it.
