Free ebook anthology from Tor

If you like science fiction and fantasy, has just come out with its annual free ebook anthology, the aptly named Some of the Best of 2014. They do publish some of the best stories around, so you don’t want to miss this! If I counted correctly they published 76 stories last year and 26 of them are in this ebook anthology, which is over 700 pages. What about the other 50 stories? You can pick up individual stories as ebooks or read them on the Tor website (or both, in the case of favs that didn’t make the anthology).

Don’t want to wait a year for more stories? You should be able to search for in your feed reader and add their story feed. (Tor has several feeds besides stories.) Tor also has a podcast, Rocket Talk, which does stories periodically. A number of good stories that didn’t make the anthology were featured on the podcast. (The Lovecraftian “Litany of Earth”, notably, is in both the anthology and podcast.) Search Rocket Talk in your podcatcher. The podcast features discussion with authors as well as fiction.

Also of note: Some of the Best of 2014 includes “Unlocked”, the prequel to John Scalzi’s acclaimed new novel, Lock In. And many, many, more good stories. FREE for your ereader!
