Any recommendations for SF from fictionwise? or that's not the place?

Plenty of good SF over at Fictionwise. They've got stuff by writers like Greg Bear, Brian Stableford, George Alec Effinger, short stories by Nancy Kress, Mike Resnick, older stuff by Pamela Sargent and James Tiptree Jr., etc.

I suggest browsing the catalogues of e-Reads, Wildside Press, Small Beer Press, Wonder Audio Books (if you like older Golden Age stuff), ElectricStory, and maybe the Marion Zimmer Bradley Literary Works Trust (if you like her work and that of her protégées, though it's mainly fantasy).

Plus you can get subscriptions for Analog and Asimov's magazines, along with a couple of others.

My very highest recommendation goes to Ted Chiang's Stories of Your Life and Others. My second highest recommendation goes to Terry Bisson's Bears Discover Fire. My third highest recommendation goes to George Alec Effinger's Budayeen Nights, which loses a couple of points for annoying formatting issues.

After that, it gets a bit iffy because it looks like Fictionwise has been removing MultiFormat stuff from their catalogue with no good reason again, plus I'd have to know more about your reading tastes before I could really recommend any other lesser stuff.

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much ATDrake.
I will try your recommendations. I can't really say what my taste is, just good SF and Fantasy I guess

Thanks again!

Karma to you! I feel like I'm about to wander off to spend all of my spare change on more books.

Thanks ATDrake - was able to pick up 10 books for about $25. Awesome, I seem to only be buying when these coupons come up.

Signup with fictionwise then use their micropay system. Sometimes they offer deals where the money you spend gets put back into your micropay account. It really brings down the price of books.

They discontinued this some time ago, when all the agency stuff began. The only people left with micropay are legacy account with micropay left over from before then.

Additionally, it seems these are the only people getting these coupons. I believe they are trying to get people to get rid of all their micropay so they don't have any obligation to them.

Only if you are still a Buywise member. I cancelled my membership and am not given Micropay with large purchases.
