Free Fall is the first novel based in the dystopian world of Android, written by New York Times bestselling author William H. Keith. In Free Fall it is the future, and murder is still an all-too-common occurrence. When an influential lawyer is brutally murdered at the top of the Beanstalk, Earth’s towering exoatmospheric elevator used for interplanetary trade, Captain of Detectives Rick Harrison finds himself on the hunt for a killer. At the center of a deep conspiracy, Harrison’s investigation leads him from the megapolis of New Angeles to the moon base of Heinlein and face to face with a question he never expected: what is the true definition of humanity?

I'd like to know that, too. If I order the paperback in Hungary , can I order the card, too?
Will this card be available outside of the US, too? Specifically in Germany?
hey JJ, in the FFG Book catalog there is a listing for a first of a trilogy set in 'Android' coming in November. So who knows maybe that means at least three more cards!
Just another reason to buy the book. Like I needed more encouragement.
Whoo hoo! Now let's see some POD love for Android!
I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. Just like the Arkham Horror novel. Oh, right, someone else thought of it first and I concured. Ha... LOL
Free extra stuff for your games is always a plus point! With this and the bonus card for Arkham Horror it's all looking rather cool. I hope there are more freebies planned :)
