If only one level of subfolders, this is it:

Sub browsefolders()

master = "c:\temp1\"

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set fld = fso.GetFolder(master)

For Each subfld In fld.SUBFOLDERS

    For Each foundfile In subfld.Files
    
        If LCase(Right(foundfile.Name, 5)) = ".epub" Then
            fso.movefile foundfile, master
        End If
 
    Next

Next


End Sub
