Tons of free SF stories

Just have a look at this site:
Free Speculative Fiction Online
Quote:
All stories are available for free. This site does not link to pirated SF!
Sites violating the copyright of the respective stories by making them accessible without the author's and/or publisher's agreement are not included.
There are LOTS of stories here. they are essentially online reading, but it is of cause perfectly legal to download the texts and convert them for your preferred reader as long as you do not distribute the stories.

Oh yeah, one example: 26 stories (from shorties to novels) by Mike Resnick.

So much to read and so little time!

You realize, of course that ebook files do not weigh anything.

Seriously, thanks for the link. I'll check these out.

Nice one Don.

Thanks for the compliments and oh, since having you here already, please post Max Brand in mobi, too. Looking forward to that one.


BTW: Stories may not weigh tons anymore but they surely did, once Makes me fondly remember my days at the university. Studying has to be so much easier on your back these days!

Thank you!

I really do want to do Mobi. First, though, I want to finish the remaining 8 or 9 Max Brand still to go. I've completed about one-half of them already.

I wish I had about two full days of no papers to grade and no students to worry about, so I could finish all those and a number of other books I want to do.

Here's one with a lot more for you

Free SF Reader List

Maybe roughly three times as much, but with a large overlap.

Your list really is LARGE, but it isn't searchable which is a bummer. There are quite a lot of excerpts, too, as I had to find out

But anyway, thanks for the great link, it contains some links not on the site I linked to.

Searches you have two options. Your normal browser one if you know what you want there, otherwise go to Free SF Reader, which is where all the posts are, this is just a list.

Free SF REader

Otherwise, see top left hand corner of blog, search via that box. For instance :-

to search for 'greg egan' and entering will return you this url :-

http://freesf.blogspot.com/search?q=greg+egan

That should solve your problem.

Yes, some interviews and excerpts for people I am interested in, certainly. Thousands that are not, though.

Another way is by author but not as up to date

Go to :-

http://freesf.awardspace.com

The latter is only likely to be updated every month or so, as takes a while.
