Free 2011 Barry Award Nominee Short Stories [Mystery]

Quote:
In 1997, the editorial staff of Deadly Pleasures decided that since one of the magazine's stated goals was to search out and report on the best works being published in the field of crime fiction each year, it would be a natural fit to present awards for excellence. Then came the dilemma of what to name the award. At the time all associated with the magazine were still reeling from the untimely death of Barry Gardner, who was arguably the best fan reviewer on the planet, so it was decided to name the award after him so as to keep his memory alive (not unlike what Bouchercon and its Anthony awards have done for writer/critic Anthony Boucher, who also suffered an untimely and early death). For a biography of Barry Gardner, click on his name above.

Thank you! I bundled them together using Instapaper, and had them sent to my Kindle (no reading at the computer and no copying-and-pasting )

Instapaper?

I looked at the Instapaper Web site and FAQ, but I don't see anything about bundling, and I still have no idea what the program actually does or how it would work in conjunction with an e-reader. Can you enlighten?

i think she means to create a folder in instapaper, save them there, then download the folder and transfer it to the kindle

instapaper is great. you bookmark the "read later" link, then you can save any web page to instapaper and have the unread sent to your kindle. what i do, especially with free online novels, is to create a folder in instapaper, save them there and download and transfer via usb to kindle

So is it any different from saving the Web page(s) to my computer?

well, instapaper formats it rather nicely, so it's less of a headache than doing it yourself (copy/pasting)

I love Instapaper, and I do the exact same thing with the free romances on the Harlequin site

YW and thanks for reminding me about this. It would save a few steps. They have an app for iPod, too. It will all depend on how I like their reader, but it would be nice to have the stories in just one place instead of scattered around.

YW, GA.
