Free Anthology of Campbell Award Eligible Fiction

Quanta has taken over e-publication of the annual anthology of Campbell award eligible fiction. This free ebook anthology is only available for a limited time every year. Here’s the link. Unfortunately, this year the new publisher requires your name, email address, and agreement to receive whatever email they choose to send in order for you to download the book. I hate all the hoops they make you jump through. They mail the link for download after you sign up rather than providing a direct download. You have to agree to get email you may not want in order to get the book (no opt out option). Presumably you can always unsub if they send you junk. (I really hope so!) On the other hand…Campbell ebook with lots of free SF/F fiction! Multiple format options for download. I chose “other” and it downloaded an epub to my tablet, which when I tapped it immediately uploaded to my Play library, so that worked out well. The anthology is over 1000 pages and the table of contents alone takes up 5 pages: it’s a big book!

Fav Space Opera on Sale!

One of my all-time favorite sci-fi books is on sale for .99 cents for Nook, Kindle, Apple, Google, and Kobo! It’s Eternity’s End by Jeffrey A. Carver. An excellent science fiction space opera. It’s got a ghost ship, pirates, a 124-year-old intergalactic conspiracy, augmented humans, kidnapping, assassination attempts, dangerous rips in the fabric of space-time, espionage and intrigue—with the pirates and search for the ghost ship at the center of it all. What’s not to like? It’s well-thought-out, well-plotted and very well-written. I love it and have lost count of how many times I’ve re-read it. I’m a push-over for a good space opera. It’s a long book, a stand alone novel in the author’s star-rigger universe, but it’s totally self-contained and you don’t need any prior knowledge. If you’ve got 99 cents (!!!!) there’s absolutely no better way to spend it!

How I Spent my Summer, plus weekend reading!

It’s the last hurrah of summer! Grab a copy of my new book, If Wishes Were Spaceships from your favorite ebookstore for a fast fun read this weekend. If you’ve already got it, leave a review on your bookseller’s site. I appreciate it. Reviews are better for authors than “Likes”, though of course I’m glad you like it. 😉 I’ve got a new post on my author blog: “Writing in the (Rain) Cloud” about writing adventures this summer, and plans for fall — which is almost upon us!
