Four Free Pre-Orders from Tor (Kindle) - PLUS other vendor's formats

Tor has four award-finalist short stories available for free pre-order. One-click now and they will be delivered on June 8, at no cost (at least, in the US; international users may see different prices).

A Memory of Wind, by Rachel Swirsky. This is a Hugo and Locus Award Finalist.

Eros, Philia, Agape, by Rachel Swirsky. This is a Nebula Award Finalist.

First Flight, by Mary Robinette Kowal. This is a Locus Award Finalist.

Overtime, by Charles Stross. This is a Hugo Award Finalist.

Don't have a Kindle? Each of these can be read online at Tor's web site (although I'm not sure if additional editing may have take place before the Kindle editions were published). Keep in mind that sales in the Kindle store, even at zero cost, probably help the author's ratings in the bestseller lists, so be sure to pick up a copy there, as well, if your cost is zero.

And with no DRM!

For those that are interested, all 4 are short stories.

Downloaded in ePub, thanks! And no registration is required, an added plus. Perhaps the title of the thread should be updated so people that want to avoid amazon.com DRM don't just look past this...

I just wanted to add that there are quite a few stories over there, too, almost all of which are in mobi and epub. That even includes Harry Turtledove, so there are a few big names as well.
