Free. My Favorite Word.


Others have probably posted on this, but, I figured it’s such a good deal that it was worth repeating.

Our fantasy-friendly buds over at Tor are offering free downloadable SF/Fantasy books every week. Just fill out the little form I’ve so obligingly provided, register, and you’ll be sent a newsletter and a link to download the forever-yours file (yep, you get to keep ’em). First off is Mistborn by new author Brandon Sanderson, followed by Old Man’s War by John Scalzi. New authors and books will come every week!

Also, a more widely (at least from what I’ve seen) advertised deal from Harper Collins, where readers can read entire novels on their site for free. No playing Finders Keepers, here, though. Readers may only devour the pages on Harper Collins’ site, with no downloading or printing abilities. Still, The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho is up at present, and, from the bits I’ve read, the format limitations are worth the eyestrain.

Neil Gaiman will be pitching his hat into Harper’s new digital format ring, as well. If that’s not enough to send you into a twitchy-fit of joy, then listen up: he’s allowing his readers to choose the book they want posted. Readers can go to his website and vote for the novel they’d like to see posted.

It’s a smorgasbord of literature.

And it’s all gratis for our sticky little fingers.

Whee!
