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!
Right now — throughout the day — tor.com, is releasing science fiction and fantasy fiction on the theme “Nevertheless She Persisted“. Lots of stories have already dropped, with more to come! If you want more fiction by women throughout the month of March, EscapePod and Podcastle, science fiction and fantasy podcasts respectively, are celebrating women authors with their Artemis Rising series; look for new stories weekly (the first ones are already out)!
Tor.com’s annual ebook fiction anthology, Some of the Best From Tor.com, 2016 edition, is now available for free! I always snag my copy right away so I’m not sure how long it’ll be free. The previous years are reasonably priced, so if you’ve missed some you won’t break your budget. Big anthologies. Good stories!
I’ve posted an update on my various works in progress on my author blog, what stage they’re in, and what my plan is for working on them. I’ve got three drafts and notes on two more books. One of the drafts is a sequel to my recent sci-fi adventure novel If Wishes Were Spaceships. The other two are the first two books of the chick-lit fantasy series I’m working on.
I had a great time last night Deadly Reads people live online. The audio is now available in the archive. It’s long, so you might want to listen while you do other things. Or just pour yourself a beverage, settle in and listen. 🙂 Stay Up Late Ainy Rainwater on Deadly Reads Radio.
