6 Free Short Stories from Tor.com (SF/F)

Quote:
Locus Magazine’s Recommended 2010 Tor.com Short Stories
MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Published continuously since 1968, Locus is the monthly trade magazine of the science fiction and fantasy publishing industry. Every February it runs an extensive survey of the original science fiction and fantasy published in the previous year, and compiles a list of books and stories that its editors and reviewers particularly recommend.

Tor.com is proud that six of our original offerings from 2010 were included among this year’s Locus recommendations:

“The Fermi Paradox Is Our Business Model” by Charlie Jane Anders
“The Cage” by A.M. Dellamonica
“The Courtship of the Queen” by Bruce McAllister
“Clockwork Fairies” by Cat Rambo
“The Monster’s Million Faces” by Rachel Swirsky
“What Doctor Gottlieb Saw” by Ian Tregillis

"In commemoration of this, we’re making all six of those stories available as a special $2.99 bundle through the various e-book retailers."

Ah. They are betting that people would fork over the $2.99 before taking the time to make EPUBs of their own.

I just finished making my EPUBs.

Got 'em!

Wasn't "Courtship of the Queen" a 2009 story?

Yes, and I was one of them. Yes, I admit I am lazy. lol

Thanks for posting those, Loosheesh. I didn't see any descriptions at the site and I didn't really go looking for them.
