Campbell Award finalist releasing free e-books

Covenant, the first volume in my Deviations series, was released by Aisling Press as a trade paperback in September 2007. The sequel, Appetite, was to be released last September, right around the time Aisling's parent company was administratively dissolved by the Florida Department of State.

I re-released Covenant in March as a free download from my website and plan to release Appetite later this week.
Genre: science fiction/anthropological fiction/dark fantasy, with mature content.
Formats available: EPUB, HTML, LIT, LRF, MOBI, PDB, PDF, PRC
Site: http://home.earthlink.net/~deviations/index.html

I was a John W. Campbell Award finalist in 1985. My story "Moments of Clarity" (Full Spectrum, Bantam, 1988) reached preliminary ballot for a 1989 Nebula. This year, two publications containing my fiction are up for awards: Electric Velocipede for a Hugo Award and the anthology Unspeakable Horror (Dark Scribe Press) for a Bram Stoker Award.

Bibliography and other info may be seen at my main website:
http://home.earthlink.net/~emalcohn/index.html

I found this forum through Jeffrey A. Carver's article, "Psst! Wanna Buy a Free Ebook?" (SFWA Bulletin, Dec. 2008-Jan. 2009). Thank you all for being here! -- Elissa

Thanks for your interest! Carver's site directed me to Calibre, where I found the EPUB conversion. I'm an e-book newbie -- I don't have a reader except for what I've put on my computer.

I've just released Appetite on the site and plan to release Vol. 3, Destiny, this December. Goin' soon with a bunch of CDs and paperbacks to Oasis May 22-24, hosted by the Orlando Area Science Fiction Society.

Thanks, Jeffrey. You, too!
I loved the article -- it's a wonderful how-to for someone new to e-books.
BTW, I've linked to your site in the blog entry and Deviations page cited above. Hope it gets more traffic over to your place.

As an aside -- In addition to the two award nominations listed up top, I've just learned that Riffing on Strings: Creative Writing Inspired by String Theory (Scriblerus Press), which contains my story "Arachne," has received an IPPY Silver Medal. <Grin>

I've just released Deviations Vol. 3: Destiny. Same place, same formats:
http://home.earthlink.net/~deviations/index.html

News from here: In addition to IPPY Silver Medalist Riffing on Strings, two other publications with my work have won awards. Unspeakable Horror: From the Shadows of the Closet (Dark Scribe Press) won a Bram Stoker Award. Electric Velocipede won a Hugo Award. My story "Hermit Crabs" in EV #14 is on the recommended reading list in The Year's Best Science Fiction, 26th Annual Edition. (Grin.)

Recent work includes fiction and poetry in the October/November Asimov's. More info is on my main website, http://home.earthlink.net/~emalcohn/index.html.

Thanks again, all! Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season! -- Elissa
